I am coming to Manhattan for a five-dinner trip in a month and I'm trying to narrow my list of restaurants. I'm fairly sure I will be going to Keen's and Convivio. I also want to find one or two restaurants where I will be able to learn something about pairing wine with food, a subject I have been pursuing in recent years. I am looking for restaurants where the food is great, the wine is great and the sommelier and servers are knowlegeable about pairing food with wine and willing to educate an eager diner/drinker. In Manhattan I have had excellent food and wine pairing experiences at Eleven Madison Park, Gramercy Tavern, and Jean-Georges. I prefer to try some new restaurants. Thank you for your assistance.
