Catching up on a few wines I didn't post reviews for....the 1994 L'Eglise Clinet is, in my view, rather tasty. Ok it's not a regarded vintage and it's fading, but this medium bodied wine still has elements of its dark fruit in place, though some enjoyable tertiary notes are more pronounced.

One of the hottest restaurants in town, Saturday night, the week before Cara's birthday: all the makings of a delightful date night.

Rarely is chicken king but at Le Coq Rico that's very much the case. Antoine Westermann apparently spent years trying to find the perfect chicken before he was comfortable opening the New York outpost of his famed Parisian poultry eatery. The Brune Landaise is indeed a beautiful bird, heavy on the white meat yet utterly succulent and flavorful. Anyone eating at Le Coq Rico should also try the extraordinary slow cooked eggs to start and end with I'ile Flottante, a perfectly spherical soft meringue floating in a sea of rich crème anglaise. Indulgent and divine.

I brought a 1994 L'Eglise Clinet, which I picked up a few years ago. Apparently this wine is considered a standout in an otherwise difficult vintage. Supple and right at its peak, this medium bodied Bordeaux has hints of cherry and tar that evolves beautifully on the palate. (Corkage is $50 per 750ml, max two per table.)

Hint of cherry. Complex and evolving taste but pleasant and easy to drink.
