Recently reengineered under the gastro gaze of award-winning chef David Miller, 360 Wine Bar Bistro’s high-end menu pairs with a 1,000-libation-long wine list that nabbed the restaurant a Best of Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator in 2011. Diners can take up tridents when spearing starters of West Indian lump-backfin-blue-crab cake, which each emerge from kitchens escorted by a wax apple and whole-grain mustard remoulade. Champagne grapes recite a slurry toast from their perch atop a puff-pastry bed of pistachio-studded gorgonzola mousse. Grilled eggplant and marinated mushrooms carouse with organic basil under a drizzle of white balsamic lemon vinaigrette as a garlic-cream-adorned dish of steamed mussels and grilled brioche guzzles its marinade of white wine and sambuca. Patrons can fortify wrist muscles before bouts of competitive glass swirling by sinking steak knives into 10-ounce cuts of dry-aged Black Angus, which accompanies pillowy heaps of red-onion mashed potatoes and bourbon sweet-bread demi.
The vino experts at 360 Wine Bar Bistro specialize in hand-plucking wines that artfully complement the cuisine. Guests opting for an expertly curated experience can add specially selected wine pairings to the two-person supper.
The wine list at 360 Bistro comes with more than 1,000 options, allowing diners to choose from plenty of rich reds and effervescent whites to pair with seasonal plates such as tomato gnocchi with lump crab or sweet-tea-brined pork chops. Owner Nick Jacobson’s efforts to create an outstanding wine program recently paid off with a nod from Wine Spectator, which has handed the restaurant the coveted and exclusive 2nd tier Best of Award of Excellence for five years in a row—360 Bistro is one of the only two restaurants to receive the accolade in the state.
