What Wine to Drink at Nine Orchard

What Wine to Drink at Nine Orchard

Not so long ago Nine Orchard St. was just an address that you’d receive at the last minute as the undisclosed location of tonight’s rave featuring Danny Tenaglia and lots of MDMA. Before that, it was a bank whose greatest achievement was the quality of the ornate ceiling they commissioned rather than their investments. In short, it was everything other than a place to drink a very nice bottle of wine with expertly prepared ‘simple’ food in a nearly perfect room. Today, thanks to a developer with good taste, a chef with some of the best food in NYC (Estela/Lodi/Cafe Altro Paradiso), and a service team deserving of awards, it’s officially the city’s best new place to eat, drink, and be seen.

Here’s what to find from wine director Watson Brown’s list.
