New & Noteworthy

My interest in natural wines continues which is serendipitous as another natural wine bar/restaurant has opened its doors. Last week, I noted the opening of LaLou in Brooklyn. This week, L’Accolade opened in the West Village and like last week, the team has strong street cred. The executive chef is Ben Traver who hales from Modern and Cafe Boulud the chef de cuisine is Nate Kuester, who has worked at Aquavit. Felix Campos of Atla oversees the cocktail list and Clément Lapeyssonnie put together the natural wine list. The 38-seat restaurant will soon open a garden area.
