I met Yarom recently at a Korean BBQ outing and I probably know other members (I've been on Meetup for over 7 years)
I'm a red wine person. My day-to-day wine is almost any Cotes du Rhones. My special occasion wine is usually a St-Julien (Bordeaux). I also enjoy Rosemount and Penfolds Shiraz. I'm not too much of a white wine drinker but when I do, it's usually a dry Trimbach (Alsatian) Riesling. I also enjoy Egri Bikavér from Hungary (w a hearty goulash) and the slightly sparkling Montepulciano d'Abruzzo w a great pizza or some pasta.
Favorite restaurant in the US is Chez Panisse. In LA, I love Dan Tana's (only for their steaks), Matsuhisa, Joe's, Saddle Peak Lodge and almost every corner Taco stand.
My name is Christian and I love just about "ANY" amazing food. I will drive two hours for a special dish. I tend to prefer spicier, bolder cuisines but most of all, I love authentic food that has a "story" so I'm constantly learning!
A very serious group for lovers of fine wine, fine fare and the fine life.
