Fine Dining Delightful Distractions

By Nancy Walman

Renowned New York Institution SCORES announces its re-opening and restoration, after closing for a short time. The legendary gentlemen’s club, made famous by notorious radio host Howard Stern, is once again playing host to a star-studded clientele that frequented the establishment in the 90’s.

Located at 536 West 28th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues, the vast Chelsea space that once housed Scores West, has been extravagantly renovated to feature a restaurant modeled after the internationally acclaimed Roberts Steakhouse. Like its sister establishment, Roberts Restaurant will serve top-rated cuisine with a trendy twist to keep pace with New York’s gastronomic scene.

The new space offers 10,000 square feet of adult entertainment and accommodations for over five hundred guests. The visual focal-point of the club is a one of a kind proscenium stage framed by flat screen televisions. The refurbished SCORES also features Vegas-worthy light shows, multiple satellite stages and an LED paved runway, to create a high-tech, multi-media ambiance.

In addition to the nightly lineup of entertainers, each of whom are headliners in their own rights, expect to see edgier burlesque type acts and cutting edge performance art aimed at ushering the upscale gentlemen’s club into the next level of modern era of adult entertainment. Scores

Executive Chef Will Savarese  lends his classical culinary skills to the kitchen of Roberts. Will’s accomplished resume boasts celebrated names like Le Cirque and Aureole as well as a lengthy stint at Le Cote Basque and La Cremaillere, where he was the Executive Chef and helped garner a 3 star rating from the New York Times.

One sample of his steak to die for, the 29 day, dry-aged Rib-eye, charred, rare on the bone & sliced, could make you an addict. The best steak in town? In my book, without question. Also, you may have to hock the family jewels to pay the tab, but hey fine dining never comes cheap. The magical fries are also worth a visit on their own. Amazingly, appetizers like tuna tartar with quail egg and hamachi, Asian-style with preserved ginger, sliced peppers and wasabi are delicious as  as well. Service is way up there and the girls are young, fresh and food for the eyes.

Chef Will may look like a kid, but he’s a total pro. Even desserts are terrific, whether they be a sexy rice pudding or a stylishly deconstructed banana split.

“Our mission is to bring back all the elements that made SCORES famous: the glamour, the celebrity and that sense of the unexpected,” says Mark Yackow. Eventually, we plan to expand across the country, but for now, we’re focused on our hometown.

SCORES  features eighteen individually-themed private rooms, many with their own flat screens, sound systems and temperature controls, ranging from the whimsical Celebrity Rooms to the ultra spacious Presidential Suites, secluded on their own mezzanine for the end all in privacy and luxury.

The wine list is amazingly expensive, but this IS a club after all and you can stick to the excellent cocktails, or go for broke and order a bottle of the Mouton for . . . I remember it topped a thousand. There are special promos for groups that can keep the prices in line or for a treat, keep your eyes on the entertainment and enjoy. Remember: “Tomorrow may never come, For All We Know.” Scores rates A Minor on The Walman Report.

Rita Jammet expands the Champagne line to include three distinctive labels

Rating: A Major, Wine On Line

By Nancy Walman

For quality and price, La Caravelle is the winner

Rita Jammet’s Bouquet Ventures is pleased to announce the introduction of the new line of La Caravelle Champagne which now includes three labels — the signature Brut Cuvée Niña, the Rosé and the Blanc de Blancs. Hand chosen by Rita and her husband André to carry on the tradition of their iconic La Caravelle restaurant, these Champagnes have been crafted in the traditional style using only the best quality grapes from Epernay in the Champagne region of France.

“We have dreamed of expanding La Caravelle’s Champagne line in order to meet the many requests from our customers for Rosé,” says Rita Jammet. “We are very proud of this new collection, which has the high quality that our clients have come to expect from us along with prices that offer a very good value. I think our new label really reflects this collection’s approach – Champagne with a clean, contemporary style, yet based in classic roots.”
Three Elegant Styles of Champagne
Champagne Cuvée Niña Brut NV

Our signature Brut is named after one of the “Caravelle” ships built by Christopher Columbus for his voyage to the New World. The multi-vintage Cuvée features a blend of 40% chardonnay, 30% pinot noir and 30% pinot meunier, with an elegant floral nose and notes of yuzu, white peaches and gingerbread.
Also available in magnum bottles.
Champagne Rosé Brut NV

In response to the increased enthusiasm for Rosé Champagne, we are introducing this lovely blend which uses the same base as our Cuvée Niña, with the addition of elegant red wines from well-known appellations such as Aÿ and Bouzy. This beautiful salmon-pink Champagne offers a floral and red berry bouquet and evokes hints of cherry almond, pomegranate and fennel.
Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut NV
Crafted to satisfy the most discerning palates, this Blanc de Blancs is made with an exclusive blend of the best chardonnay crus harvested primarily from the Côte des Blancs. Aged for three years, this complex wine has an elegant bouquet perfumed with white flowers and a refreshing, lively flavor with notes of citrus and rhubarb.

La Caravelle Champagne is currently being served at some of New York City’s finest restaurants and bars including Adour, Veritas, Aldea, David Burke Townhouse, Scarpetta and Apotheke Bar. They are available for retail purchase at Morrell Wines, Acker Merrall & Condit, and Bottle and Soul in Manhattan, J’s Wine and Spirits in Brooklyn, and in the Hamptons at Lamplighter Wines & Liquors and Wines by Morrell.
