I was heartbroken over Shepard's closing, but looks like Luce, an Italian concept by the same owner, is opening in its place. Keeping my fingers crossed they do the same concept with wine (allowing you to purchase quartinos at the bar of the half-bottles opened in the restaurant, or just being able to purchase a half bottle from the majority of their list). Made solo-dining there a really nice experience.

BOSTON STYLE: Two Pearl all beef hot dogs, with sauerkraut, mustard, griddled homemade New England-style buns, at Mamaleh's Delicatessen in Kendall Square, Cambridge, near MIT. Probably Boston-area's best Jewish deli restaurant.

Another fantastic meal at Troquet, and the Summer Wine Sale is back on for the month of January. Excellent bottle of 1978 Ch. Haut Brion was WOTN (WOTY so far), but everything was in great shape. Yes, even the 1973 Cave Cooperative de Fleurie, which was probably my second favorite wine. More proof Beaujolais really can age!

And who knew Joseph Phelps once made a late harvest riesling?

Lot of new dishes on the menu, and I had the first ever serving of "Maine Lobster French Toast", which is DOTY so far (with brioche, lemon curd, lightly smoked crème fraîche, sauce Americaine, celery; $23).

1973 Cave Cooperative de Fleurie Fleurie
1995 Archery Summit Pinot Noir Archery Summit Estate
1978 Château Haut Brion
1995 Bodegas Reyes Ribera del Duero Teofilo Reyes Tinto Cosecha
1978 Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste
1977 Joseph Phelps Johannisberg Riesling Late Harvest

Through the end of January.

For those of you looking for a nice wine dinner in Boston this month, my friend Ian Calhoun is putting on a wine dinner next Tuesday the 29th at his restaurant Mooncusser Fish House. Cost is $225/person. Restaurant is on Stuart St in Back Bay.

I’m coordinating the wine and it’s a great lineup of pristine older bottles. 1981 Charles Heidsick “Charlie” in magnum (recently ex domaine), 2005 Carillon Puligny Montrachet “Champs Canet,” 2007 Beaucastel Roussanne VV, 1981 Palmer in magnum, and 1954 Broadbent Madeira Verdelho.

PM if you want to join or want further details. Would enjoy meeting some of the Boston WB crowd.
