If you want to savor some over-the-top liquors, Le Bernardin has what you’re looking for. The New York restaurant offers an extensive collection of old and rare cognacs, armagnacs and calvados. The liquors complement Le Bernardin’s true drink focus: wine. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant’s 15,000-bottle inventory includes wines from 12 countries with vintages dating to 1875. The restaurant specializes in white wines from Burgundy, which work well with chef Eric Ripert’s refined seafood offerings. Le Bernardin’s sommelier staff, led by wine director Aldo Sohm, can recommend wines or liquors to pair with your meal. Or, for less guesswork, choose the readymade wine pairings with your seven-course Le Bernardin tasting menu or 10-course chef’s menu.
