Geoffrey Fallon has joined Banq as bar manager and sommelier, according to the restaurant. Fallon, winner of an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator for the past seven years, has already revamped the restaurant’s wine list to focus more on pairings with Banq’s small plates. Fallon has also instituted Sunday Night Wine Club, where high-end wines are offered at a deep discount (think $64 for a $160 bottle). Banq’s cocktail menu has also been updated and there’s now a mojito deal on Thursdays, where five different kinds of mojitos are available for five dollars each. Fallon is also writing a charming blog for Banq where he discusses, among other things, his love for cheap wine and beer openers. It’s definitely worth a read.
