Foursquare Tips

  • Sommelier Jeremy Quinn has assembled a list of pretty exciting naturally made old-world wines, and the staff that serves them couldn't be more easy-going or attentive
  • Chef John Anderes (ex-Avec) elevates Telegraph into a full-fledged restaurant with a seasonal menu and sates wine-induced cravings (e.g., a ham-and-coriander-mustard tartine).
  • Penny Pollack loved everything about the salmon, including the chewy black rice pilaf. And she says go for the panna cotta, which is filled with Jalapeo bacon streusel.
  • Dish after dish, Jeremy Quinns pairing suggestions elevate the food on the platewhile introducing us to grapes like scheurebe and xinomavro.
  • A red-bean pound cake with coffee toffee might pose a pairing problem. Luckily, Telegraph advises what to drink right there on the menu. The suggested bourbon-spiked coffee is surprisingly spot-on.
  • Try the pork loin tartine from our 100 Best list: The Logan Square wine bar is turning out glammed-up bruschetta piled with pickled pork loin, whipped feta, Bosc pears and juniper vinaigrette.
  • Rustic fare paired with esoteric Old World wine in a well-designed intimate neighborhood spot make this a super hot destination. [Eater 38 Member]
  • The best salmon dish I've ever had. For serious.
  • Must-Try Dish: Duck liver pt spread thick on toasted bread painted with Cognac butter and topped with brandied tangerine wedges.
  • Drink orange wine with a salad of oil-poached tuna and green beans, or bucatini with cuttlefish chorizo:
  • Props to Jeremy Quinn, whom Food & Wine named one of the top sommeliers of 2012.
  • Go for the wine list, packed with unusual and exciting by-the-glass and bottle offerings, and stay for chef Johnny Anderers excellent food, like grilled bread with duck confit, foie gras and apples.
  • Love the ambiance and the ever-evolving food menu. The grilled octopus and fois gras plates are delish. Wine list is extensive too!
  • It's like they copied Girl and the Goat, but failed to deliver the same quality.
  • Telegraph Wine Bar is the perfect place to swing by for a leisurely bite to eat and drink. The antique fixtures and lights provide a bit of a speakeasy vibe.
  • The Oysters were delicious. I should have ordered more!
  • i get mixed reviews when I take people here. i really like it but you might want to make a quick reservation just in case. no telling if/when it will be busy.
  • Chris is awesome! Great recommendations!
  • Great atmosphere...and the flank steak is delish
  • One of the best mid-priced wine lists in the City.
