Dashing wine director Andreas Loaiza compiles the most egalitarian selection in town: His 250-bottle list roughly balances Old World and New World, familiar and esoteric, and prices at all tiers to please every possible taste. The wine program mirrors the inclusive philosophy of chef-owner Gerry Klaskala’s New American kitchen, which uplifts favorites like crab cakes, smoked salmon, and short ribs with artful attention.
Drink This: Gently spicy, blackberry-forward 2008 Maysara Estate Cuvée Pinot Noir from Oregon’s Willamette Valley: $73.
