Wine List Analysis

When I study Hospitality Management, I haven’t had red wine. Because I’m allergic.But I can try a little be.this is ok. When I take this class, I have discovered wine is not just an alcoholic drink, Food and wine pairings allow chefs and sommeliers to pair individual dishes with different wines in hopes of enhancing the flavor of both the food and the beverage. So, wine becomes a significant item for the restaurant industry., I will compare the wine lists from River cafe and Daniel Brasserie restaurants.

The River cafe is located in one of New York’s most unique and romantic settings, and is well known around the world as a wonderful culinary destination.Nestled riverside under the Brooklyn Bridge, The River CafĂ© exudes romance with its breathtaking NYC skyline views, gorgeous atmosphere and above all our classic American cuisine. At The River Cafe, they serve brunch, lunch and dinner at a fixed price.The River Café’s wine program, since 1977, is one of the most respected in the country. he River CafĂ© believes in long term cellaring and after thirty years has created one of the best international wine lists to be found anywhere. Some of the world’s greatest and most sought after wines, including Chateau Reyas, Chateau Petrus, Domaine Ramonet, Neillon, Vega Sicilia and Domaine de La Romanee Conti, are available in multiple vintages at The River CafĂ©.

Daniel is a French restaurant located at 60 East 65th Street on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, in New York City. Since opening in 1993, Daniel has earned its place among the pillars of New York City’s bustling dining scene, receiving numerous accolades for its refined European cuisine, world-class cellar and gracious hospitality. The restaurant Boasting more than 25,000 bottles, our cellar ranges from exceptional old-world wines to innovative offerings by young vignerons. Daniel presents 25,000 bottles into the wine list . Wines are categorized into the region and going along with appellations. but this menu didn’t show any information for each wine.

All in all, both restaurants are different styles of presenting the wine list, But I think The River cafe menu is better. They do a good job in all. and They also have a better dining environment and food is also very good
