Aldo Sohm Wine Bar
Last week Eric Ripert and Le Bernardin's master of wine, Aldo Sohm opened up a wine bar right around the corner from the restaurant.
The menu is small...a selection of charcuteries, cheese and small plates like Grilled Foie Gras Lollipops, Spicy Chicharones and Truffle Pasta. There's also a few "by the piece" options like a cheesy Romaine Salad Spear Gratinee ($4.25/piece)
...and a juicy Short Rib Skewer with fried shallot and red wine reduction ($12/skewer).
The food is simple and rustic... the perfect accompaniment to the incredible wine list Aldo has put together for the bar.
Wines by the glass begin at $11 and while the bottle list has some "knock your socks off" bottles there is also a number of affordable options proving that this is a wine bar truly meant for everyone.
