2005 BEST Sommelier

Cat Silirie, No. 9 Park

A good sommelier knows wine. A great sommelier enlightens all the rest of us. That’s what makes No. 9 Park’s Cat Silirie the best in town. Each evening her servers are treated to “wine word” classes—”it’s grassy, not bright!”—during the staff meal, while diners are gently encouraged to experiment outside their comfort zone—but not beyond their price point.
