GlennK, I'm in your corner with that. Too many strikes vs. things I actually want to eat. Also, if I'm going to do a 15+ course tasting menu, it obviously is not about the wine. + with the knowledge on this board, is there really any chance anyone will feel like they received fair value for $250 pp for wine?
Funny coincidence - I dined at Next on Sunday. Hands down the best dining experience I've had. The food was absolutely amazing (persistent through the entire menu). The reserve wine pairing was very good. I think the cold sake and a white (Chateau Simone) were the highlights for me, followed by the Maderia (Rare Wine Co., NY). All said, the thing that stood out was service: intelligent, fun and extremely hospitable. Worth every dime and I'm excited to visit again for another menu - if I can secure tickets!

Although I'd be extremely jealous because I can't get it here, I hope some Sauvagine was on that list.
Tonight was steak frites with roasted brussell sprouts, which was nice, but the highlight was dessert - a French toast stuffed with triple cream Brie and roasted strawberries. OMG...

Interestingly, Mrs. DP and I split a wedge of Sauvigine and french stick with slices if italian sausage for dinner with some Cali-Chard.
Lovely and light Friday dinner for 2 watching "A Good Year" on the TV.
