Vinous Table: Osteria Le Logge, Siena, Italy

Vinous Table, Italy: Tuscany

Antonio Galloni, Oct 2018

Tuscany is littered with dozens of exceptional and even world-class wine estates. When it comes to dining, though, things get much more dicey. It is not always easy to cut through the plethora of anonymous restaurants serving indifferent fare to the unsuspecting tourist crowd and find places that excel with both delicious, well-prepared food and a carefully thought out wine program. Located steps away from Siena’s Piazza del Campo, Osteria Le Logge is one of the bright spots in Tuscany’s food and wine scene.

Langosteria is one of the hippest restaurants in Milan that harkens back to Paris brasseries, but with a Milanese fashion attitude, very good food and a truly outstanding wine list.

Vinous Table, United States: New York

Ian D'Agata, Oct 2018

The Modern’s beautiful interior space and garden views are very fitting for a restaurant housed within the Museum of Modern Art. And just as fittingly, it is one of NYC’s best dining spots.

Many food experts believe that Pierre Gagnaire is France’s most talented, inventive chef. My last visit at his Paris temple of culinary delights confirmed that the man is still on a mission.

Neal Martin, Sep 2018

I will tell you what is cool. Lyle’s – in cool Shoreditch in cool East London in the cool Tea Building. I am freezing cold by the time I walk inside because I have passed so many cool people all with beards, multiple tattoos and multi-warhead piercings. With the capital’s restaurant scene buzzing, I wanted a cool Vinous Table but the trouble is, hip ‘n trendy restaurants usually fall flat on their face in the one department that really matters – the food. Would Lyle’s be the same?

One of Hong Kong’s most famous restaurants, the multi-award winning T’ang Court may not be the last word in trendy, but it offers precise cooking and a fine wine list in a classic, refined atmosphere.

Neal Martin, Aug 2018

Brat exemplifies everything a restaurant should aspire towards in 2018. It is no wonder that the following day I find Tomos Parry splashed over the weekend supplements, with Brat declared as the hottest ticket in town.

Vinous Table, Italy: Piedmont

Antonio Galloni, Aug 2018

In all of the years I have been visiting Piedmont I have never dined at Il Cascinale Nuovo, a local institution that celebrates its fiftieth birthday in 2018. What an oversight. I won’t let that happen again.

Mammà offers striking views and terrific food and wine in one of the world’s most singularly beautiful places, the island of Capri. Professional service and a talented chef take care of the rest.
