Although we're normally closed Mondays, this Monday, November 7 (which happens to be my birthday), we're hosting a special wine dinner with winemaker Pierre Breton (from Catherine & Pierre Breton). Icons in the natural wine movement for doing what they do in an area where the climate and soil can make organic viticulture difficult, Catherine & Pierre Breton's wines have long been among our favorites to drink. They make a variety of wines -- all are delicious, well-balanced, terroir-driven -- and certified organic & biodynamic to boot. There'll be just one seating at 8pm. The cost: $75 with wine pairings. By reservation only and selling out fast. Call us at 718.857.9227 to make your reservation. We hope to see you there.
