wine pairing with 2 kinds of fried chicken

jcd Aug 28, 2009 07:59 AM

a quick question --

i have a reservation tonight at momofuku noodle bar in new york city. they have a very reasonable corkage of $15, and a sparce wine list. we are going for a specific meal, which includes the following: two types of fried chicken (one southern style made with old bay seasoning), and one korean style (made with bibim, soy and sherry). the dinner comes with mu shu pancakes, long spicy peppers, baby carrots, red ball radishes, shiso leaves, bibb lettuce, four sauces (hoisin, ginger/scallion, jalapeno garlic and one other), and a basket of herbs.

i want to bring a wine to pair with the meal, but am not sure what to do about the old bay / asian combination. what would you bring, if only bringing one wine? i am open to any suggestions.

thanks so much!

      carswell beat me to it - sparkling rosé is perfect.

        concur on the bubbly although I would not be strictly wedded to a rose

        Perhaps a nice Riesling?

            I would have brought a Champagne. Probably rose.

              Rose Bubbly.

              But I'm 5 days late to the party. What did you bring to the resto, jcd?
