It takes skill to have such a large wine list of French wines that I have either never heard of or never tried. I skipped wine.

Re: books ?

Given your MidWest roots, I recommend the culinary/life musings of Jim Harrison. “The Raw and the Cooked” is a collection of his food writing for Esquire. He was a poet and screenwriter (Legends of the Fall) with a hilarious and cutting take on haute cuisine. i can read harrison's books every year +1
