For French cuisine served alongside an exciting Bordeaux selection, check out NYC’s iconic Bar Boulud. Settle into the main dining area, featuring a curved ceiling reminiscent of a wine cave, as you enjoy a glass of Felix De Biac 2016 or Château Roquefort Blanc 2020. For a rich and elegant red teaming with notes of cedar and jammy black fruit, opt for a glass of the Felix De Biac, a perfect pairing for many of the menu’s bistro classics. If you’re looking for white wine, the Château Roquefort Blanc is an aromatic, floral style with hints of white blossom and tangy citrus notes.
If you’re after a theatrical evocation of Paris and bistro-style gastronomy, look no further than Pastis. Discover a lively Parisian atmosphere in the middle of the Meatpacking District as you enjoy a hearty glass of Château Haut-Rian 2018. This opulent wine leads with peppered blackberries and calls for steak frites – a perfect glass to enjoy in this lofty and sophisticated atmosphere.
L’Adresse American Bistro serves up seasonal fare with a European touch in the heart of Midtown. It’s also the perfect spot to quaff a glass of Moulin de la Roquille 2018. A modern blend of three traditional Bordeaux grapes, this robust wine is aged in oak barrels for over a year, making for a wine that is complex yet easy to pair with a very easy-to-enjoy menu.
