St. Vincent Tavern and Wine Merchant
After taking a break so the guys could go taste dishes from a chef they’re interviewing for a new project, we meet back up at St. Vincent. They’ve brought along Trick Dog bar manager Morgan Schick and a few other chef pals, and we all reconvene at the bar around David Lynch, the owner of St Vincent who was once Wine Director of Mario Batali and Joseph Bastianich’s Babbo in NY, and who literally wrote the book on Italian wine (yes, it’s called Vino Italiano).
After a discussion of old Boston College basketball players (Dana Barros! Bill Curley! Danye Abrams!), David opens a bottle of 1982 Cabernet Sauvignon Josh and Scott discovered when purchasing a wine cellar, and everyone toasts to the fact that, thanks to all that Mission shopping, I’m no longer wearing a soccer jersey.
