2010 BEST Wine List

American Seasons

It’s a bold statement for a city mag to give the stellar-cellar nod to a restaurant located a couple of hours (and several modes of transportation) from downtown. But for those willing to roll with the car-ferry-taxi shuffle, the reward is Orla Murphy-LaScola’s gem of a wine list at American Seasons, packed with off-the-beaten-vine vintages from the States. Even jaded sommeliers—stuck tending to creaky libraries of ‘important’ quaffs from Burgundy and Bordeaux—scratch their heads in amazement at theeccentric yet impeccable collection of small-production wines.
