Halibut with Gnocchi, Marche Bacchus

One of the newest menu items at this locals favorite bistro and wine shop is pan-roasted halibut with house-made gnocchi, parsley gremolata and wine-butter sauce. Rich and earthy, this soothing dish is an example of the classic cuisine executed by chef Joe Swan and his kitchen as they collaborate with chef Jet Tila for a special four-course, prix fixe pop-up dinner on Sept. 26.

Tea Time

By Xania Woodman

The tea menu at Mandarin Oriental’s Tea Lounge is exquisite; the cocktails in the bar, delicious and sophisticated. It was just a matter of time before someone would set them up on a date. Bartending supervisor Michael LaPenna did the matchmaking. “We wanted to turn guests on to some of our special select teas by incorporating them in a well-balanced craft cocktail,” LaPenna says. The resulting menu of tea-inspired drinks looks to the tea itself to suggest coordinating spirits and fruits. And all three stand up as delicious cocktails, whether it’s teatime or ’tini time.
