I was reliving old New Year's Eve memories, and remembered back to the one time I ate at the Federalist. I remember it having an insane list of wine, etc.: A port from the 1790s, scotches from the 19th century, a case of wine that had been salvaged from a WWI shipwreck. Did I dream this? If not, does anyone know who inherited that impressive cellar? Does anyplace inside of 495 even approach this?
now called mooo, they still have a pretty impressive line-up of ports and scotches, but there was an inventory/management scandal before it was revamped. the cellar, per se, was poorly managed and plundered as well.
not sure quite what you're looking for, but grill 23 has a pretty deep wine list as well as an impressive scotch/cognac/port selection.
