The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Immigrant Restaurant’s resident wine director and mixologist Jason Van Auken can lend a hand in the selection of a wine to best complement any à la carte item on the menu with your taste, regional preferences and budget in mind. If you’re interested in pairings for each course, go for the $100 prix-fixe tasting menu with pairings for an additional $60. The Tasmanian red crab pot stickers are coupled with the Charles Smith “Kung Fu Girl” Riesling 2009, while the pan-roasted Vermont quail with pink peppercorn is matched with the Nicolas Potel “Vieilles Vignes” Burgundy 2007. The seared sea scallop and Hudson Valley foie gras is paired with the Corinne Perchaud Chablis 2008, and the main course of ancho chile and coffee-braised beef short ribs is served with Milbrandt Vineyards’ “The Estates” Merlot from 2007.
