Pops for Champagne Restaurant Review

: Champagne gets its own separate menu at Pops, and it’s no wonder, as the restaurant stocks nearly 150 Champagne and sparkling wine selections, with by-the-glass varietals rotating weekly. Don’t know your cava from your Prosecco? No worries, since the well-trained staff does. Or better yet, let the bar introduce you to a new breed with its Champagne cocktail hybrids. We can certainly vouch for the Black 75 (cherry vodka, cava, lemon juice and griottine cherry). As for bites, raw bar selections pair nicely with the bubbles (try the ahi tartare with its chive-daikon salad and miso-mustard), as do shared plates that include duck BLTs. And for dessert? We suggest the chocolate caramel ganache. Sundays through Tuesdays are the nights to go, when the Joe Policastro Trio jazzes up the place with its live tunes.
