Carrying on a tradition that stretches back to my years living in the City (1997-2007), I spent the first evening of my NYC sojourn at Alice’s restaurant, where she prepared what will be the most wholesome meal of my trip (a good way to start a week of eating and tasting my way through the city; a lot of crazy restaurants lined up).
Alice gave the Ostertag Riesling the thumbs up. I thought it was pretty nifty, too.
The main event was a vegetable-stock based soup (Alice doesn’t eat meat). The food at her house is always great but I really go for the kibitz.
She recommended raising the heat with some salsa. Natural salsa? Probably not but delicious nonetheless.
Main course was accompanied by an old favorite, a wine that Alice turned me on to many, many years ago…
Stay tuned for NYC stories and please come see the show tonight if you’re in the city!
