There's a burger on the menu!

 

Ok, steak hache a cheval from the wagyu they've had on the menu recently, but still. I didn't try it.

It feels like the wine list prices keep creeping up somewhat aggressively. I was just there in January and felt like I saw more modestly priced selections. Is this the tariff war?

 

Does anyone have a red recommendation for the duck? Would love to keep it at $70 but can go to $100 before my dining companion starts raising eyebrows. Might go for the steak too, if said companion is amenable

Everything is creeping up. The duck is $10 more than when they opened, I believe. 

 

For wine, depends what the dining companion orders / if you want funky or not. The duck (or steak) is a pretty straightforward dish that could be a neutral backdrop for a number of off the beaten path wines.

 

Matassa's stuff can be pretty interesting... I haven't had the Brutal Rouge ($75) but I imagine it's something fun and a bit (or maybe a lot) outside the box.

It's remarkable that the Brutal Rouge is the exact one I'd earmarked. Thanks!

Well...my dining companion has just begged off for tonight(HE HAS A FEVER or wanted to bail in the most undiplomatic fashion). Looks like I can get whatever fucking wine I want now.

And in a weird coincidence, Tom Lubbe (of Matassa) is hanging out & pouring at Peoples tonight, and somehow I missed the announcement until just now.
