Chelsea restaurant

NoMad is 400 feet from what is technically Chelsea...close enough. Quality determined the choice.

TN - 2005 Karl Lawrence Cabernet Sauvignon

With you on Karl Lawrence....big fan...recently opened a 2001 that was stunning. Similar profile to the '05, & beautifully balanced.

Best Pizza place (by the Pie) to take visitors?

Another option is Zero Otto Nove on W.21st St....coal-fired brick oven, between Naples/NY style. Quite good.

Raventós Cava -- Anyone Tried It?

I've tasted the Raventos & yes...would recommend it. Great QPR, & has made it's way to several high vis wine lists. Aldo Sohm is not alone in liking it.

Cheap Wine that Doesn't Suck

Try the 2006 Peter Lehmann Semillon (Barossa, Australia)...great nose, good acid, decent structure for about $12.

Wine Cooler Temperature

55 degrees would be standard.

Sushi of Gari

Have been to all three. As another fan of creative sushi, Sushi of Gari (from Gari himself) is in a class by itself. Yasuda & Seki are very different experiences....high quality, yes, but you probably would miss the melted tofu, toasted pine nuts & floral essences.

RW - Perilla, Red Cat, or Tribeca Grill

Have been to all 3----Perilla by a few miles. Creative preparations, pristine ingredients. Easy choice in my mind.

Suggest Triomphe (in the Iroquois Hotel). Had the osso bucco there recently & it's excellent.
