What to Eat (and Drink) at Corkbuzz Wine Studio, Opening Soon in Greenwich Village


As long as there is wine, there will be attempts to demystify it. The latest, the forthcoming Corkbuzz Wine Studio, is master sommelier Laura Maniec’s wine bar-cum-living room, which will launch all-inclusive $100 Sunday suppers in December, casual classes on “Takeout Pairings” and “What to Drink Now” in January, and happy-hour blind tastings every Friday night. On a daily basis, though, the focus will be on wine and what to eat with it. Among the options: scallion-pancake-battered Kumamoto oysters; bone marrow with blue-cheese brûlée; and cavatelli with Brussels sprouts, pecorino, and mint, courtesy of chef Hayan Yi, a veteran of Daniel and Le Bernardin. If all goes according to plan, Maniec will start serving in a week or so; here's her opening menu.
