THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Taste Restaurant & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: For Taste Restaurant & Wine Bar , Eli Zabar draws on everything he offers at his flagship store Eli's Manhattan, his wine and cheese shop W.I.N.E, the casual eatery Eli's Vinegar Factory, and his vast knowledge of food and wine. There’s a daily-changing menu to complement the rotating selection of 30 artisanal wines from around the world available by the glass. Since all manner of fine ingredients are available just downstairs, as well as fresh herbs and produce from the two greenhouses atop Eli's Vinegar Factory, there’s a lot to work with. Sit at the sleek backlit bar or settle into the moody chocolate brown and burnt umber dining room for well-constructed dishes with clean flavors. The bar's small-plates menu might pair bacalao croquettes with a Taft Street Pinot Noir, while the dinner menu might feature Hubbard squash risotto with sage and pecorino or Nantucket Bay scallops with cauliflower, blood orange and walnuts. The cuisine and wine are on even footing, neither outdoing the other. By day, Taste is a self-serve café, and the weekend all-you-can-eat buffet is a neighborhood hit.
