Vinous Table: NoMad, New York City

Vinous Table

Antonio Galloni, Mar 2020

I have been to NoMad many times, but most of the times to host Vinous events in one of the private rooms. I was really looking forward to this dinner in the main dining room as a brief distraction during what has become a very rough time around the world.

Brixton Laundry is a welcome addition to the London dining scene south of the river (and I might be biased, but it has always preferred it to the north.)

This recent dinner was a great opportunity to catch up with friends over a leisurely meal and enjoy some nice bottles. The food was off the charts, and the wines were pretty terrific too.

Vinous Table: Piedmont Icons at Legacy Records

United States: New York, Vinous Table

Antonio Galloni, Feb 2020

There are few things I enjoy more than hosting small dinners for Vinous readers. The conversation and company are always just as good as the wine and food, while the intimate format allows for deeper conversations than at larger events. That was certainly the case at this recent dinner we held Legacy Records featuring wines from a handful of benchmark Barolo producers.

Au Fil du Zinc is a local institution in Chablis. The place to go. An inventive menu married with a killer wine list and a casual environment make Au Fil du Zinc a must for readers visiting Chablis.

Is Wheelers worth the schlep down from London? Well, if you want outstanding seafood without paying a king’s ransom, then certainly.

France: Burgundy, Vinous Table

Antonio Galloni, Jan 2020

The Hostellerie’s Restaurant Gastronomique is a terrific choice for readers who want a more relaxed experience. A spacious room, verdant views and tables set far apart add to a feeling of serenity that is pretty relaxing for this city boy.

Vinous Table: The Black Bull, Sedbergh, UK

Vinous Table, United Kingdom

Neal Martin, Jan 2020

Restaurants such as The Black Bull play a crucial role in attracting tourists and epicures to less-traveled parts of the country, and reasonable prices mean that you are not breaking the bank for either food or wine.
