Patrick's Bar Vin Restaurant Review: Oenophile Patrick Van Hoorebeek was well known to New Orleanians as sommelier and manager in some of the city’s finest dining rooms. It came as no surprise when he opened one of the most upscale wine destinations in the city. Van Hoorebeek’s wine list, while not the most extensive in town, is certainly among the most well thought out. Obvious favorites such as Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay are all there, but dig deeper for the real finds. Consider the Artezin 2008 Zinfandel or the 2005 Maison Bouachon Châteauneuf-du-Pape. These wines are not necessarily rare, but they don't often appear on New Orleans lists. Van Hoorebeek has wisely kept his selections distinctive, and complemented them with cheese and charcuterie plates. The room is as elegant as its host, and the vibe is strictly upscale.
