Antonio Galloni, Nov 2017

Eric Ripert’s brilliant cuisine and Le Bernardin’s elegant dining room make for a fabulous escape from the hustle and bustle of mid-town Manhattan.

Vinous Table: Marta, New York, NY

Vinous Table, United States: New York

Antonio Galloni, Oct 2017

Located in the Redbury Hotel, Marta is one of the more recent additions to Danny Meyer’s restaurant empire. Delicious thin-crust pizzas and a terrific wine list presented in an energetic, casual atmosphere make for a fun night out. The large space, with its high ceilings and open, wood-burning pizza ovens is immediately welcoming. The menu is built around thin-pizzas and handful of appetizers and mains, many of them done in the wood fire ovens.

Vinous Table: Il Buco, New York, NY

United States: New York, Vinous Table

Ian D'Agata, May 2017

Il Buco started life out as an antiques shop prior to morphing into one of New York City’s finest and most fun dining destinations. There is nothing antique about the food or wine here. Instead you’ll find expertly cooked, ingredient-driven dishes and a super wine list to dive into.

Vinous Table: Trattoria Carpaccio, NJ

United States: New York, Vinous Table

Antonio Galloni, Apr 2017

Trattoria Carpaccio is one my most delightful finds of recent years. This small, neighborhood restaurant captures an intimate atmosphere that is increasingly rare in today’s world of large, corporate restaurants.

featured, United States: New York

Kelli White, Jul 2016

As a former New Yorker, I’ve been excited to watch from afar as an increasing amount of acclaim has been lavished on the Empire State’s wine regions. In particular, the Finger Lakes has undergone an enormous transformation in the past 10–15 years as the quality of the wines has taken a gigantic leap forward.
