silly as it sounds, if you know how to read a list, you will start to see "values" at around $200 for whites and $250 for reds. GCs included.

I just hate wine lists were everything is a 2009 or 2010.

I hear you on that. It's annoying going into a place and seeing a wine list full of stuff you could walk off the street into Crush or Chambers St and buy. Granted, I will take it over a crappy wine list any day of the week--but it certainly does not make for a *great* wine list.

As always, I appreciate the help.

AppleMark

I generally prefer glasses with longer stems.. but 32€ for six bottles of Santa Cristina rosso (which is a good price by itself) and four Riedel Ouverture glasses for free on top? Great fucking deal.
It was even supposed to be the '10, which is, IIRC, a bit more interesting, but it's pretty much sold out everywhere and the '11 is still a good value.

I love to troll for > $12 stuff but I am on a fuck shit run of fruit bombs & padded bras. Latest is this shit bomb Don Ramon Borga which will be my first endeavor into making vinegar. In fact, I'll start a thread.

Elegant reviews.

Picked this up from the local government wine shop (back in PA) without knowing anything about it. Wasn't half bad for $17--might very well buy again. Had a pleasing funk to it.

Food budget is pretty much anything short of Per Se prices; would prefer to avoid giant tasting menus as well because that is just too long to spend at a business dinner. Open to just about any type of cuisine, though my preference for wine is obviously going to self-select that a bit.

This will be a fairly festive occasion (and internal--no clients), but it is a business meal, so ideally no Meatpacking shitshow, not that I would expect anything like that to have the wine I am looking for.

Bonus points for a good Riesling selection as well, but that is much less important.

Corton? It's a tasting menu but not absurd.

Bah. I am not a jackass, and you are better than this comment.  Matt, on the other hand, is just being Matt.

Hunts, you can do as you like. I am still scarred from watching Kyle and my lovely wife consume cappucinos after dinner one night. He needs strict rules.
