Dennis Spina’s French Connection

By

In an interview with chef Dennis Spina of Roebling Tea Room, Brooklyn Based gets the dope on the upcoming Wine and Meat dinner there next week: $65 buys four courses plus pairings, as well as talks from a winemaker and a butcher. In describing his attraction to French food, Spina also reveals himself to be a lovable jerk. I like the whole thing, from the casual alcoholism to heavy salt use to the rudeness, he says. It all just meshes for me. [Brooklyn Based]
