Chez Philippe offers wine pairings, which, according to sommelier Philippe Brainos, are like a good marriage: neither the meal nor the wine should overpower the other. And while it may be challenging to find the perfect pairings, Brainos considers it his duty — he doesn’t want you going home and dissatisfied with one or the other.
A sommelier for 35 years, Brainos comes to the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant with a wealth of knowledge about wine, food and service, having trained for years in the culinary and wine world in his native France. Brainos will create a wine-and-food pairing based on your tastes and selections. The seven-course menu has a wine pairing option for $48 extra.
