The Food and Wine Pairings at Enotria Wine Bar Are Perfect Every Time!

During a recent visit we sampled several dishes at the Enotria Wine Bar and these were prepared brilliantly by Chef Denton Whyte, who has been with Inside Park for 11 years. Tally provided appropriate wine pairings for each and we enjoyed them all very much!

We started out with a "mix and match" cheese plate that was full of unique and interesting flavors. Along with the assorted cheeses were fresh grapes, walnut bread, fig jam, jug mustard, house pickles and exceptionally cured meats. This was paired with a Single Vineyard Malbec. You can create your own cheese plate at Enotria Wine Bar from their selection of imported cheeses and chef's choice accompaniments. The selections avalable will vary by season.

Next on our visit was the extremely well crafted Manchurian Cauliflower Bites! The cauliflower was perfectly tempura fried with garlic and scallion. We could have eaten these all day long. Highly recommended!

We also sampled the Burrata and Heirloom Tomato with grilled tomato, basil pesto, toasted ciabatta with just the right amount of balsamic dressing. For this we enjoyed a pairing of a bone dry Pinot Gris.

For the finish we chose the Faroe Island Salmon, which was served with shaved fennel, mint, spring peasand charred tomato. This was one of Chef Denton’s specialties and it was prepared perfectly! This plate was paired with an Oaky Chardonnay and it rounded out the dish very well.

Tally proved he's an expert when it comes to wine pairings! The Enotria Wine Bar is a complete wine experience and one of the most thorough in all of Manhattan. The professional and attentive staff makes you feel instantly comfortable and you’ll be quick to return to try more new wines and expand your palate further.
