We had so much fun eating and drinking at Aldea last week that we almost forgot Foodie Fridays should be as much about wonderful wines as they already are about fabulous foods. Drinking, after all, is an essential element of life in the city that never sleeps!
Used York City promises to bring you the best of New York each weekday, and Foodie Fridays will be no different. We’ll alternate food: a Treasured Table brought to you by our very own Guest Columnist Adam Gross with visits to New York’s best epicurean gems (catch up on Adam’s latest foodie pilgrimages around NYC: China via Flushing, Italy via Zibetto and Portugal via Aldea) — and wine: our brand new column where we’ll feature a bi-weekly bottle paired perfectly for life in the Big Apple…
Now, these won’t just be any wines picked by anyone – only the best, of course! The Used York City team has traveled up, down and around Manhattan tasting wines and meeting the people who recommended them (we’ve got to admit we’re feeling a bit tipsy!) in search of just the right vintage partner to help you get your NYC weekend started on the right foot!
In the meantime, we’ll kick off our Bi-Weekly Bottle with a pick from your very own editorial staff here at Used York City, the perfect pairing for our dinner at Aldea and more importantly, the quintessential summer wine for New York – crisp and dry, citrusy and mineralesque with a mysterious hint of effervescence: get your weekend drink on with Vidigal ($8) available at one of our favorite wine stores, Sherry Lehmann on 59th and Park, where you can also find the following picks if you’re up for a splurge, laying low, like it fruitier or want it dryer… (just like New York, there is another great distraction in every corner!)
Any burning questions on NYC’s vast epicurean jungle? Comments or suggestions for the new Foodie Fridays? We’re listening…
“Drinking good wine with good food in good company is one of life’s most civilized pleasures.” -Michael Broadbent
