  If you find yourself on the Upper East Side craving French fare, look no further than Sel et Poivre. Owner/Chef Christian Schienle prepares classic French bistro dishes with a refined, updated flair. Our first dish that came out was celery root remoulade with red beets. It was great to cleanse our appetite. Next, came out Red Pepper Bisque that didn’t have any cream in it. It was full of flavor, I really loved it! Next came out entrees to try. Out of all we tried, my two favorites were the Duck a L’orange with wild rice and the Aged New York … Continue reading

#SCBDReview: .@SpuntinoWineBar with Wine Boy

    Wine Boy and I were craving small plates and wine after a long day of working together, so we headed to Clifton, New Jersey. Right by the AMC Theater is an Italian Wine Bar and Tapas restaurant called Spuntino, known for its fabulous selection of Italian wines and small plates. The atmosphere was welcoming and I loved the decoration of wine racks surrounding the entire restaurant.

If you’re looking for a lovely wine dinner to attend where the proceeds go to a great cause, go to one at Escape in Montclair. The dinner I attended with Jason was roots & grains dinner where both … Continue reading
