Staff Pick

For many of us, choosing a wine is the most anxious part of dining out. What if I mispronounce the varietal? Are Syrah and Shiraz the same thing? What if I get Pinot envy? Thankfully, Philip Michael Cohen at Bar Normandy understands your anxiety and wants to help. That’s why he’s created arguably the most entertaining wine list in the city. Descriptions don’t just help you suss out a wine’s flavor, they paint a picture of a deeply disturbe-, err, I mean, adorable wine snob. Don’t believe us, try this description for the Muscadet, “Crisp, lean, mineral driven white that’s been in a healthy relationship with oysters for years.” Get me some of that. —Kinsey Gidick
