Cocktail experiments for the Manhattan Cocktail Classic at Hearth.
Not a bad way for our staff to start the night at Hearth. Well-played, Matt Stinton.
As part of our Hearth & Terroir all-hands-on-deck monthly Bordeaux tastings, the entire staff marched through the sunny streets of the East Village to gather in Hearth’s main dining room. It’s sort of like the pilgrims on Thanksgiving, but only with better wine. And no turkey. Oh, and no muskets. Well…maybe a few muskets. Today […]
Last week, Serious Eats: Drinks was kind enough to do a piece about our bar program at Hearth, specifically the focus I decided to shine on New York spirits. Click here to read the article (and be sure to view the kick-ass slideshow by Alice Gau). Since that fateful day six months ago, when I […]
Mannie Berk of the Rare Wine Co. held a wee little Madeira dinner tonight at Hearth—and by “wee” I mean the “sickest line-up of old wines I’ve ever beheld in person.” I stood by somewhat slack-jawed as he pulled these incredibly old bottles out of his knapsack like a kid unloads his lunch box and […]

While we’re chasing down the treasures of the Trappist monks and meeting the ambient yeasts of Brussels’ Lambics, they’re gearing up to light the Olympic torch tonight for the greatest […]
Oude Geuze (lambic), Drie Fonteinen, Belgium (6.5% abv) Last night, one of my co-workers asked me what my favorite beer on our list is. I was paralyzed. Whoa, choose one? But these are my babies and they’re all unique in their own way! How could I possibly zero it down to one? I felt like […]
I was flattered yesterday to receive a wee bit of press on Eater.com for all my beer geeking & drinking. Aren’t you proud of me, Mom? Here’s a link to the piece by Greg Morabito which details my current sudsy work at Hearth Restaurant and the two Terroir wine bars: “Hearth’s Resident Beer Geek, David […]
Leflaive. Palacios. Joly. DRC. The list of heavy-hitter winemakers who’ve embraced Biodynamic farming goes on and on. In fact, if I had an ever-ticking stopwatch like the one at Union Square, it just might accurately reflect the number of biodynamic wineries popping up each day. I recently had a piece published on Palate Press entitled, […]
