My wife and I spent 6 days in NYC recently for our anniversary. We were excited to try out french16's new restaurant, Racines.
It was wonderful to catch up with french16 again and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about the restaurants ambience, food and wine list.
We tried everything on the menu except two items. Our favorite appetizer was the Ajo Blanco ( tomato sorbet, cherries and green beans) and our favorite entree was the Porcelet with gnocchi, swiss chard, anchovy and rosemary. Our cheese plate for desert was perfect.
Our wines for the night were ...
NV Ruppert Leroy Cuvee Fosse Grely Brut Nature
2008 Michel Lafarge Beaune Greves
2008 J-M Gannoux Paligny Les Folatieres
2011 Elian da Ros Coucou Blanc
A rose Champagne to start the evening that I never saw the label of.
