    Eleven Madison Park is a restaurant in Manhattan, New York City. A temple of gastronomy and for many, a must visit. The wine list is similarly impressive and expansive. The team has built what can only be described as a dream list. Not cheap, but then again, if you've secured a reservation at one of the world's most praised restaurants, skimping probably isn't your number one concern. The wine list at Eleven Madison Park stretches to more 200 pages and apart from California, it is mostly focused on Europe. Interestingly, Corsica has earned its own section.

    Escape the world and bustling 5th Avenue and enter the Italian fine dining restaurant Ai Fiori. Located on the second floor of the Langham Hotel, only steps from the New York Public Library. The discrete space in brown and beige is made for couples, Italian families and power lunches alike. On our latest visit, two guys that both sounded very much like Kendall Roy in HBO's Succession discussed cap tables and funding at the table next to us. The venue is classic, the service is old school, yet forthcoming and the food is very good. In fact, this is the only place in the world where I've ordered...

    Melissa Rodriguez is no stranger to fine dining or 85 Tenth Avenue. Al Coro is the former Del Posto space, where Rodriguez was the executive chef. Now the team is back, and the food is better than ever. Al Coro offers three menus, one with five courses, and one with seven courses, as well as an a la carte menu. The menu, both food and wine pairings, change every six weeks and there is live music every night. “Al Coro is a restaurant built for celebrating,” and it certainly feels that way. The wine list has a lot to choose from, with over 600 references. While Italy is the focus, the list doe...

    La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels is a wine bar in New York City. Unpronounceable to most New Yorkers, it’s just known as “Compagnie” and it is perhaps the best wine bar in downtown Manhattan. The staff is heavily made up of former fine dining employees and has amassed a list full of gems from all over the world. La Compagnie is a place where industry folk tend to end up after finishing their shifts. Chances are that you'll gain a friend or two if you sit at the bar, not to mention share a bottle or two.

    Grand Prix New York, presented by Catena Zapata 2023

    Momofuku Ko has always been the crown jewel of the David Chang empire, with a 10 course, 3-hour experience that rivals any of the great tasting menus in New York. However, right on the other side of the main dining room is the Bar at Ko, a tiny room with some of the most fun and affordable food in the city. For years I would pop in after service for a burger, some cold fried chicken and champagne. The wine list at Momofuku Ko and Ko bar are the same, and that’s a very good thing. The list is French heavy and is categorized by the winemaker within the region. They have an amazing selection of...
