Restaurant Review: New York, New York

King


In an airy space where SoHo and the West Village meet,  River Café alums Jess Shadbolt and Clare de Boer teamed up with New Yorker Annie Shi to open King in late 2016. Shadbolt and de Boer turn out lusty and dynamic plates from the season’s best produce—dishes like baccalà with grilled polenta, olives and wild oregano, or roasted pumpkin with dandelion, chili sauce and crème fraîche. These demand agile wines, and the two-sided wine list delivers with a savvy selection of Champagne, Beaujolais and Piemontese wines, plenty under $75. There’s also a dozen wines “From the Family Cellar,” where you can drink extremely well for a good price—1996 Léoville Las Cases for $500, 1998 Giacosa Barolo for $300.
