Why do I feel something has gone over my head here? Is this the location of the infamous stage?

biggrin.gif i went in december. almost went for mm's stage this past weekend, but couldnt make it work with exams.

i kinda want to go again for the vegetable tasting menu (the vegetable tasting isn't vegetarian right? like they use animal stock and stuff?)

the only animal products used are typically butter, cheese, and/or other dairy stuf like cream. Maybe eggs.

so it's full on vegetarian? have you had it before?
post #15545 of 18013
i've had some courses from the veg menu, though obviously not all and haven't done any full tasting menus.

This is from their single vineyard, Giachini. Young, sure but shows real promise.

Last night with ribeyes.

Wonderful wine -- lots of sophistication and powerful tannins, but blended beautifully when hitting the tastebuds. The Antinori family always produce a quality product. And, still on my Chianti Classico Reserva kick.

In New York City in April.

Need recs for a wine bar with good glass/flight selections near the New York Palace Hotel. 455 Madison. Thx.

Maybe others can chime in, but Monkey Bar had some nice wines by the glass the last time I was there.

Le Bateau Ivre or Terroir in Murray Hill are all I can think of. Not sure how close to the hotel you need it.

The website for Terroir is so obnoxious it makes me want to avoid the place.
post #15552 of 18013
That's true. Great wine though, and the guy who runs Terroir, Paul Grieco, knows what he is doing. Is also one of the biggest Riesling advocates in the city, so double bonus in my book.

Yep. I can forgive most of the over-the-top aspects of the website b/c there is a ton of different and great wine to try BTG.

Picked up this bottle at Chambers St for $21 the other day. Not bad for a $21 Burg. Acid was quite strong, and it needed to breathe a good bit before it became more approachable. Good red-berry fruit. Not terribly complex, but good weekday drinker.

Trying to decide if I want to buy some more bottles...
