Church and State wine list
The wine list was quite reasonable, my husband & I thought, when we dined there last weekend. We had a delicious red blend, French, of course, and it went perfectly with all of the rich dishes we ordered, for under $40! Ask for Adam the sommelier, a very young but extremely bright guy. He had great recs on the beer as well, of which my husband is also a connossieur.
We ordered the marrow bones, the rillettes and the pied de cochon, (pigs feet on a lentil salad with lardons, frisee & a poached egg). All of it was luscious.
I order the duck confit - it was absolutely cooked perfectly, nice & crispy & salty. The accompanying red cabbage and potatoes sardonnaise(?) were excellent counterpoints to the rich duck. My husband ordered the beef short ribs and they were also expertly executed, although I chided him that my recipe was better!
The chef, Walter Manske(?) is a pro, and the entire meal was first rate, at a decent cost. Definitely going back asap. Have fun!
