Pullman Restaurant Review: Pullman draws its name from the luxury train cars of yesteryear. Set in a large room divided into three levels, it is dominated by a huge chandelier made from wine glasses. The outlook is nothing but modern, with minimalist leather-and-skin-covered stools, sparse tables and accessories, and a selection of the latest lounge-style music. The main attraction is an original and often surprising list of some 200 wines, devised by sommelier Véronique Dalle, which allows you to taste trios from Switzerland or the Loire Valley, or sample through unique cuvées from Italy, Spain, France and the New World. To go along with the wine, there’s a tapas-style menu with everything from fried calamari with pesto-mayonnaise sauce and Rockefeller oysters to mini-cheeseburgers and grilled cheese sandwiches, plates of charcuteries or cheese, or even a bowlful of truffle-flavored green beans with roasted almonds. Still hungry? How about some Valrhona chocolate truffles or a corn-chocolate-pistachio cone to be enjoyed with a glass of port or Banyuls? As you sip and snack your way through these offerings, you may find yourself staying into the wee hours of the night.
