AnnaLena

Well, if there is one new place you need to dine at, it’s definitely AnnaLena. And I am not just saying this because a wine friend and fellow wine geek did the wine list (her first one!), it’s because this place has a story, and a soul.

The wine list has some good ones by the glass, but perhaps a bottle is the way to begin your evening! We shared a bottle of this delightful Pierre Peters Grand Cru Champagne.

 

Here are the dishes we enjoyed, along with sippers of many glasses of wine to match (because we couldn’t decide!)
