For the past two decades, Barbara Lynch has relied on sommelier Cat Silirie for all things wine — and for good reason. No. 9 Park is one of the city’s most rewarding places to order, sample, drink, and think about vintages and varietals — and then there’s Menton, where Silirie’s staff remembered wines that we’d liked and disliked during a visit the year before. Now if that’s not service (and smarts), we don’t know what is.
