David,

A wine friend of mine and his wife and I were planning a wine dinner on that Sunday. Maybe we can join you. We didn’t have a theme, but he always brings a very drinkable wine (such as ACV).

Dan

May I join? Thanks.

Some possible suggestions… http://wineberserkers.com/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=23092" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I will, of course, be preparing for the tailgate the next day, but I could probably see my way to finding a few hours for dinner. Have you ever done the Peking Duck House wine routine? It’s almost as classic as Lotus of Siam.

I did PDH last time I was in the city with you, Cheryl, and others (remember I brought that Bolivian wine?). However, I wouldn’t mind it again - it was fun and food was great. I’m going to forward the NYC BYO thread to my wife Nilsa to see if anything looks especially interesting to her.

Ah yes, the Bolivian pinot. Shockingly good, in fact. What kind of food does your wife like? We can probably work backwards and start with her preferred food and find a place that will let us bring wine.

Nilsa’s suggestions based on the links Dan provided earlier:

Beacon – midtown location, free corkage on Sundays (per a 12/2009 post), re-opening for dinner 9/12! Awesome varied menu.

Tribeca Grill- free corkage on Sundays through November, lovely space and convenient location/parking. Menu looks great too (look at the duck breast- yum!)

Braeburn- looks nice enough, free corkage Sunday/Monday, not as extensive menu as the previous, but interesting enough. Main issue= only open til 9pm on Sunday.

Any of those look good?

Nilsa likes all types of food and is especially interested in great desserts.

David, they all look good. Since you started this thread, you get to pick. I figured out a theme… GREEN.

Wine boards have loved Tribecca and Braeburn.

Beacon - no experience.

Green as a theme. An interesting idea. There are 1,519 different wines on Cellartracker in which the word “green” appears either in the wine name or the location of the vineyard. The easy one is pinot from the Green Valley in Sonoma. I have at least 2 Loring Keefer Ranch pinots and a bunch of DuMol pinots from the Green Valley.

And there’s some very good stuff from Greenock Creek in Australia, but I have none of that.

As to restaurant, I do not care very much. We have done Tribeca a bunch of times and it is good. I have never been to Braeburn.

Let’s do Tribeca Grill. What time? They have a table for 8 at times up to 7:30 and then 9:30. I figured 7-7:30 for a Sunday is fine, but can do earlier if you want. We don’t mind late, but I know Jay is working Monday.

So far, here are the attendees:

David and Nilsa
Dan +2
Jay +1
Victor

Please correct me if my numbers are off.

As for green wines, I have 04 and 05 Loring Keefer as well as the following Greenock Creek wines: 01 Seven Acre Shiraz, 01 Alice’s Shiraz, and 02 Cornerstone Grenache.

Earlier is better for me as I have to drive upstate NY the following morning at 6:30.

Jay,

The Green them was for the NY Jets fans in the group. neener As long as I’m not limited to green, I’ll be ok. PS, I have the 08 Loring Keefer.

I made the reservation for 8 people at 7:00 PM at Tribeca Grill. If we need to change it, please let me know. Had to put a credit card down, but can cancel anytime without penalty on or before Friday the 10th. Can modify anytime with no penalty

If the green theme sticks, I’m going to bring a 2009 Paumanok Chenin Blanc. A nice starter wine from Long Island (from our friend Charles).

Updated with reservation time.

Now, for the wines…is the Green theme still in play?

The _foot_ball is in your court. [highfive.gif] If I can bring the Loring and the Paumanok, I’m good to go.

**G**ood and **G**o both start with the letter G, as does **G**reen.

Please post your wines. I’d like to point my 2 friends in the right direction.

Please accept my apologies, as I am unable to attend. This conflicts with a memorial service for a friend who had died almost nine years ago. Thanks.

Sorry to hear you won’t make it, Victor. Was looking forward to meeting you. If you are ever in S. Florida, please let me know.

Here are the wines I am shipping up for dinner:

2001 Greenock Creek Shiraz Seven Acre (Australia, South Australia, Barossa, Barossa Valley)
2002 Greenock Creek Grenache Cornerstone (Australia, South Australia, Barossa, Barossa Valley)

1998 Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain Sélection de Grains Nobles (France, Alsace, Thann, Alsace Grand Cru AOC)
