2000 Best Wine List, High-End

The Federalist

Twenty-something sommelier Christian Vassilev has built Fed owner Paul Roiff’s cellar into a veritable wine museum. You’d be hard-pressed to find so many Cheateau Latour, Margaux, and Monton-Rothschild wines in one place in the country. And that’s just Bordeaux! The wine list spans the globe, and includes both boutique bottles from small producers and well-known crowd pleasers alike. In keeping with the restaurant’s luxe ambiance, the list isn’t value-minded; it is an education for wine lovers in every other respect.
