All we have to say for this should-be Federal Holiday:
To celebrate, we’re opening a very special bottle. Conterno Fantino “Sori Ginestra” Barolo from 2009.
This is a serious wine for Barolo lovers and, heck, any person who likes red wine.
Brimming with spice, cherry, rose petals and great structure to hold up to that ribeye.
Come in and ask the Somms for a glass of the special Barolo! $59 / glass

Wednesday, January 13th:
One of the Veneto’s most famed producers, Allegrini, is known for crafting the king of Veneto’s reds, Amarone.
Here we have a modern twist on the Corvina grape (the dominant force in Amarone); this Veronese IGT is blended with a bit of Rondinella, Syrah and Sangiovese.
In thirteen years, this just-about full-bodied wine has gone from blackberry, juicy black cherry, vanilla and licorice and has evolved to notes of leather and spice.
This wine is drinking at it’s peak today, so come join us for a taste! Bottles are limited, $30 per glass.

If you are not already dazzled by the fourty by twenty foot chrome chandelier in the main dining room at Hunt & Fish Club, then you will be in awe of its artwork. The “Black Room” and the “White Room” respectively feature sensational and dramatic paintings designed by world-renowned artist, Roy Nachum, who also had a hand in the design of the restaurant in partnership with respected design firm, Studio Iyor. Together, the two were careful to preserve the elegant and timeless feel of the restaurant’s ideals, while creating an intelligent and contemporary space by emphasizing powerful geometric forms.
Born in Israel, Nachum relocated to New York where he studied at The Cooper Union School of Art. His artist...Read more

Join us tonight, Thursday November 19th as we open a very special bottle.
La Rioja Alta’s Viña Ardanza ‘Reserva’ is the gold standard when it comes to classic, traditionally made Rioja. If you haven’t tasted what Rioja should be known for (as far as we are concerned!), join us as we pour this very special wine from 1996. It is Tempranillo with a bit of old vine Garnacha, and the three years barrel aging before bottling has tamed this wine into suppleness. It still has lots of life– come try this gorgeous example of Rioja’s good old days…
This Sommelier Selection is $82 per glass.

It takes ten minutes scrutinizing the wine list just to pick a suitable wine that won’t break the bank. The Somm comes over with said bottle, shows it to you, and proceeds to un-cork. Pressure’s on. Do I need to swirl it? Smell it? I have no idea what I’m smelling for. Smells o.k. to me. Tastes fine… I think. Why am I doing this in the first place? Does anybody ever send it back? Answer: “It’s great!” (But is it great?)
Let’s break down this whole tasting charade. Technically, you are smelling to make sure the wine is not corked or otherwise faulty. The most common flaw is cork taint which is a presence of a chemical compound called trichloroanisole (TCA). It can be present in the cork and...Read more

Join us tonight, Thursday, November 12 as we open a very special bottle to pour by the glass. Famed winemaker Heidi Peterson Barrett (formerly of Screaming Eagle, Grace Family, Diamond Creek and more) crafts this voluptuous Cabernet Franc from grapes coming from the Oakville AVA of Napa. The wine is bursting with raspberries, black cherries, a touch of spice and a soft background of vanilla. Silky and full on the palate– a truly delectable wine!
Come get to know Cabernet Franc, the “father” of Cabernet Sauvignon… we only have a couple bottles so hurry in! $45 each glass.

Chivalry has been proclaimed dead in the modern century in concordant agreement. We scoff in distaste and joined agreement, but is it possible that we misunderstood what it was to be chivalrous entirely? Perhaps we simply fail to see where it exists, sure and strong, before our very eyes, and perhaps our modern perception of chivalry has simply been warped and misconstrued, and we ended up losing its essence altogether.
Chivalry was the heralded Knight’s Code of Conduct, their Code of Chivalry. To follow the Code of Chivalry separated the knights from the men. It was being not only an upstanding man, but an upstanding member of society. It was expecting more of oneself than was expected of you by others, and constantly exceeding so...Read more

It’s 1929. The Roaring Twenties seemed all too fleeting in New York as the nation plunges into difficult times and the public is unsettled. The economy’s stability is questioned, and social changes are sweeping the nation as Prohibition laws are put into place. It seems that the city is about to enter into darker times.
And so begins the rise of the Stork Club.
It’s “New York’s New Yorkiest”; anybody who’s worth discussing is making their appearances at the city’s hottest new nightclub. And in 1929, the Stork Club places a hold on city nightlife that will last for the next forty years in a remarkable and untouchable reign.
On any given night, you may catch a glimpse of your favorite celebr...Read more
