Top 5 Wine Experiences in NYC

Burger & Barrel Babbo Maialino Charlie Bird Lupa Burger& Barrel This place is kind of quirky. Along with very stereotypical burgers they also have a really good wine list. It might sound a little strange at first. How good of a wine pairing can that be, does anything really go with greasy burgers? Don't knock... Continue Reading →

Drinking my way through NYC

When I was in NYC last I had the opportunity to try a lot of wines. I think my favorites were the Dominique Lafon Bourgogne and the Burlotto Barbera d'Alba. Another cool wine we drank was the Bruno Giacosa Dolcetto 1994. 22 year old grape juice is always fun to try. This one was quite... Continue Reading →

NYC Day 6

Last day. Day of my brothers graduation from College. I am a very proud sister! It was quite a trip to NYC and I am already excited to come back one day. There is nothing quite like strolling through Washington Square Park in the morning, sun on your face, surrounded by all kinds of people.... Continue Reading →

Day 5

Today we were back at Otto for lunch, this time with remarkably better service. I had the pizza this time and it was incredible. I recommend the prosciutto and arugola pizza. The wine this time was the Burlotto Dolcetto, very good! Our friends came down for the day and we spent some time in Washington... Continue Reading →

The service was awful, the food was not great and they had strayed from their "from farm to table" philosophy. A shame, really, because I really liked Blenheim. After Blenheim,... Continue Reading →

I always thought the menu was kinda funky, and today was no exception. But I am so glad we went here! The wine list is good, but there is... Continue Reading →

NYC Day 2

I woke up at 6... In my defense I went to bed at 21:45, so I got a decent amount of sleep. After walking around in Soho, my brother and I went to Barry's Bootcamp (which was amazing) before we met up for lunch at Otto. I have been to Otto a few times, and... Continue Reading →

NYC Day 1

It is so good to be back. I went directly from the airport to my brothers apartment, dropped my bags and headed straight for Lupa! Truly one of my favorite places. I always feel like I am coming home. I had a few glasses of Moscato, said hello to Joel, my favorite person at Lupa... Continue Reading →
