Aureole Restaurant Review

: AS OF NOVEMBER 27, 2016, AUREOLE HAS TEMPORARILY CLOSED TO BEGIN A TRANSFORMATION AND WILL REOPEN IN LATE DECEMBER WITH AN UPDATED DINING CONCEPT. Sure enough, the wine here is the attraction. But how can you handle more than 50,000 bottles of the precious elixir? Building a tower --- 42 feet of glass and steel, storing 10,000 bottles --- was the solution of designer Adam Tihany who, upon the request of Charlie Palmer (of Aureole New York fame), created a restaurant for the century. The centerpiece of this modern-age, sleek-and-chic black, white and metallic gastronomic temple is this monument dedicated to the glory of wine. Diners watch in awe as "Wine Angel Stewards" are lifted and lowered via cables inside the tower to retrieve bottles. The main room, the more intimate Swan Court overlooking a fountain and a pond, and the three private rooms can seat 300 diners. A full house of hungry patrons represents quite an undertaking for this fine dining venue, which offers a seasonal menu of great American food. The six-course tasting may start with Snake River Farms Wagyu beef carpaccio, followed by macadamia nut crusted diver scallops, Hudson Valley foie gras, blood orange miso glazed sea bass, and a choice of Colorado lamb chop or five spice and honey duck breast. Such dishes also appear on the à la carte menu. Sweet endings might include green tea profiteroles, warm chocolate lava cake or vanilla bean cheesecake. Wines can be paired with individual dishes, but if you wish to make your own selection, don't expect to peruse the wine list, at least not in the traditional form. An electronic slate brought to your table will, at the touch of your fingers, converse with you even if you are not wine-savvy. Those who prefer fine craft beers are not left out, with a list that includes Trappistes Rochefort 8, Duvel, Lindemans Cuvée Rene, Goose Island Matilda Belgian Blonde Ale and Lagunitas IPA.
