Restaurant Review: New York, New York

Rebelle


A more upscale direction for Patrick Capiello and Branden McRill, owners of the wine-geek mecca Pearl & Ash down the street, Rebelle offers an epic 80-plus page wine list split between France and the US. But rather than dividing Old World and New, head sommelier Kimberly Prokoshyn blends the two together, organizing the list by variety. “I hope to show the relationship between French and American wines,” Prokoshyn explains, “how we learn and are inspired by each other.” Her gentle markups keep the list accessible, as does her team’s refreshingly inclusive approach that spans all styles and aesthetics. After all, where else could you start with a bottle of cloudy pét-nat rosé from the Loire’s La Grange Tiphaine, proceed to a steely Finger Lakes riesling or a North Coast trousseau from Arnot-Roberts, and finish with a mature vintage of Haut-Brion or Roumier Bonnes-Mares?
