TN: Outdoor Dining In NYC - Wines With Dinner

#1 Post by Brad Trent » October 15th, 2020, 6:47 am

I haven’t dropped a TN here in about 100 years, but I gotta lotta time on my hands since I’m not exactly working 24/7 any more, so here goes...

Four wines dining outside at Tartine in NYC.....

2014 Daniel & Julien Barraud Pouilly-Fuissé ‘Les Crays’ - Lovely golden color, spice and honeyed citrus nose, surprisingly full-bodied, yet still stony/saline/minerality with ripe, full green apple & citrus flavors. It’ll certainly last another decade...easy...but this was unfortunately my last bottle.

Image

2014 Jerome Galeyrand Côte de Nuits Villages Vieilles Vignes - clear, bright red color with a super ripe nose of strawberry and a hint of herbs. Soft entry and mouthfeel, more ripe red fruits...and a beautiful, zippy finish. Drinking great right now...not sure of the upside of aging this any longer...it says a lot that it was the fave wine for 3 of the 4 people at the table. (The holdout picked the La Mish, but he grew up in Bordeaux...🙄...just sayin’)

Image

2006 Josef Walter Bürgstadter Centgrafenberg Spätburgunder "J" trocken - Slightly rusty red color, definitely showing its age...evolved nose of soft jammy fruit and earthy spice. Very smooth attack, soft tannin with a complex blend of red berry fruit and savory spice & minerals. The finish isn’t the longest, but it’s still very nice. No need to let this age any longer if you’ve got these.

Image

2002 La Mission Haut Brion - A simply stunning wine from a much maligned vintage. Deep, dark red...looked like it could have been bottled yesterday...with that classic nose of tobacco, herbs and bell pepper. Bright, full flavors of ripe plums & black cherry. Magnificent finish...sweet muscular tannin, bracing mouth-watering acidity, lead pencil, herbs...it’s all here in Spades! Just remarkable!!!

Agree with the other responders on the good notes and photos

Although I would differ on the "much-maligned" part on the 2002 LMHB, I'm happy for the notes and data point as I have 3 bottles sitting offsite.

Good collection of wines to bring to Tartine.

Also, it's been ages since I've been to, nor find anything written-up about, Tartine. I've always admired their rustic, almost no-frills, approach to French cooking. Almost feel like dining in a bistro in one of the most local of neighborhoods in Paris. I suppose their outdoor-dining system is much more in vogue these days. Did you have to wait long for a table?

The La Mish isn’t maligned, but 2002 as a vintage gets little love. As for wait times...it’s nothing. Granted, we got there right at 5:00 when they opened for dinner, but there have been open tables most nights I’ve been there. You gotta go while it’s still warmish.....but Thierry is getting heaters soon.

I nearly brought a Retraits, but decided on the Villages cuz I wasn’t dining with geeks and the Retraits is a real Geek Wine.....I’m prolly gonna open one in the next few weeks to see how it’s doing.

Yup...and Thierry is applying for a wine & beer license to try to get profits up. But don’t worry...he’s keeping Tartine BYO...he just wants to offer a small selection for those who either didn’t bring a bottle or just might want a glass of something. I’m actually writing him a recommendation letter today that he can send on to the SLA with his application.

We ate there last night for the first time in 5 years or so. When we lived in NYC, we were regulars who went at least once a week. A couple of thoughts...

I'm very happy that they received a nice review on Eater. Good for them, they deserve it. Nothing, I repeat, nothing has changed. And that's a good thing. Spicy chicken with frites is as good as I remember it. Warm goat cheese salad was still dressed perfectly. It's not fancy in any respect. It's good, solid everyday bistro food that I'd be happy to eat twice a week. We were there around 6pm on a gorgeous night and got a table right away. Shortly after we sat down, every table was taken and there was a short line. The stems are still shitty and I don't care. Brad must bring his own glasses especially with the La Mish.

Side note...lets say over the course of time I've had 100 meals there. I believe that 99 of them have been the spicy chicken.

Of course I brought stems! And of course the table next to us asked the waitress if she could give them some ‘good’ glasses! 😂 And while I too had the Spicy the other night, the Beef Mignonette is usually my go-to dish.....😎

Sat across from Amy Robach and Andrew Shue who seemed very happy to be there.

PS. I almost asked to use the Brad Trent stems as I figured that you have a box of stems stashed there.

Thank you for the TNs as well as the pictures. I live a couple blocks from Tartine and now (I wish it wasn't raining) all I want to do is go get that famous spicy chicken dish! However, I would want to bring a bottle of aged Bordeaux ('00 Leoville-Poyferre, '03 Pichon Longueville), so perhaps I would have to go with their steak au povres or grilled steak, right? Might need to bring a bottle of champagne or white burg as well... thanks again for the post!

For those types of wines I would bring a couple of stems too.

Agree - would definitely bring stems, as long as there are no Brad secret stem stash I could request by dropping his name and showing this WB post to the waiter champagne.gif [cheers.gif]

Byo stems, definitely.

Back in the days when I used to go, 8+ years ago, they'd have specials. I don't know what the situation is with daily specials since. But boeuf bourguignon then were good enough with the byob.

Also, I remember that their Pissaladiere appetizer was always worth ordering.

I used to keep a 6-pack box of stems there until Thierry told me the staff would feel bad when they would break the occasional one while washing them! 😂
