Les Vapeurs is a delightful place to have an easygoing, delicious lunch or dinner when vacationing in France’s beautiful seaside towns of Trouville or nearby Deauville. Simple dishes and fresh ingredients abound at Les Vapeurs. Mussels, shrimp, lobster, clams, but also steak and fries are the mainstays. It’s a bustling, inexpensive place in which to eat, while kicking back, relaxing and watching the seemingly never ending crowd of vacationers stroll by on Trouville’s main boardwalk.

Ian D'Agata, Jun 2017

Venice’s Osteria Alle Testiere is one of my favorite dining spots in the world. I repeat, in the world. Small, cozy and always packed, getting a table is nearly impossible so plan and reserve ahead. You’ll be rewarded with one of the best, most authentic cuisines of the world’s most beautiful city.

In the minds of many knowledgeable food experts and lovers, Dal Pescatore is Italy’s best restaurant. Housed in a beautiful countryside villa, with spacious, well lit rooms and large tables that are set far apart Dal Pescatore offers guests precise cooking deeply rooted in the classics and a fine wine list with older vintages, all delivered with professional but not stuffy service.

It’s not often that you stumble upon a truly great bistro where there’s someone with real talent behind the stoves. But so it is with Au Fil du Zinc in Chablis. A pretty interior, lovely views, precisely cooked flavorful foods and a great wine list make this place an absolute winner.

Vinous Table: Il Buco, New York, NY

United States: New York, Vinous Table

Ian D'Agata, May 2017

Il Buco started life out as an antiques shop prior to morphing into one of New York City’s finest and most fun dining destinations. There is nothing antique about the food or wine here. Instead you’ll find expertly cooked, ingredient-driven dishes and a super wine list to dive into.

Ian D'Agata, May 2017

La Matricianella is one of the eternal city’s three best addresses for authentic Roman cuisine. Some of the city’s best fritti, pastas and lamb dishes await. It also doesn’t hurt that the place is an Italian wine nirvana, with not one but two large wine lists: a first that is devoted to Lazio wines only, and a second, much larger, heavier tome dedicated to Italy’s best whites and reds.

Located in London’s Bloomsbury district, Noble Rot is a sort of British version of a French bistro/winebar. Over the years, Noble Rot has gained quite a bit of acclaim for its wine list, which is indeed impressive.

Trattoria Carpaccio is one my most delightful finds of recent years. This small, neighborhood restaurant captures an intimate atmosphere that is increasingly rare in today’s world of large, corporate restaurants.
