Vin Bar/Valentino

I have written glowing report after glowing report about Vin Bar/Valentino. The extraordinary thing about this restaurant is its consistency – you will always have superb food, incredible wines and stupendous service. This is an A+ restaurant and honestly it just doesn’t get better than this.

My camera decided to cease for the night so the first course plus the first two white wines are not pictured. Thank goodness for John’s cell phone camera.

Our wines for the evening were spectacular.

Vin - champane

We started with Schramsberg. Then we had a spectacular sauvignon blanc from south tyrol Alto Adige 2012 and afterward a Fiano di Avellno,Campania Antiche Terre 2010. Piero picks the best wines that compliments the food extraordinarily.

Vin - gotico wine

Red wines were Gotico

Vin Barbaresco

and Barbaresco.

Dinner by Chef Nico was off the charts fantastic. He has an ability to extract the best from an ingredient without losing the instrinic quality of the ingredient. His blending of flavors is stupendous and couple that with Piero’s wine pairings you can expect a meal of Michelin 3 star quality.
