Restaurant Marc Forgione is one of the hottest spots in TriBeCa – and their wine list might be just as good as the food. Tune in to “In the Drink” as I sit down and chat with GM/sommelier of the restaurant Matthew Conway. Find out what went into choosing the wines at the blossoming New American spot, and how to manage expectations for a wide and varied customer base
Small distilleries are becoming more and more popular in New York City, and this week on “In the Drink,” I highlight one of the more interesting projects happening right now – Industry City Distilleries. Tune in as I chat with Peter Simon and Zac Bruner, who describe the inspiration behind the distillery and what it was like taking the initial steps in design and production. Find out why they decided to focus on vodka at first – and how they use beet sugar, which is usually a European tradition. Tune in for an on-air tasting and tons of insight into the life of an urban distiller.
