Bill Cosby, Autumn 94

(continued from page 1)

Sommelier Erin Ryan White is eager to assist and can offer a separate reserve list of more expensive wines. This list offers little depth, however, and includes only a handful of wines from vintages prior to the 1980s, including a 1964 Camile Giroud Pommard at $165 and a 1949 Château Latour at $550. White is currently working on a new list of all wines.

After coffee, what could be better than a Cognac and a good smoke? Cigar smoking is permitted at the bar at anytime and, officially, at the table after 1:30 p.m. during lunch or 10:30 p.m. during dinner.

When ordering cigars, as many as five humidors can be brought to the table. One is handmade by general manager Mauricio Andrade's Ecuadoran father. There are about 50 brands and sizes including Macanudo Vintage '88, Partagas Limited Reserve and Partagas 1844, Punch Maduro, Arturo Fuente Hemingway, La Gloria Cubana, Don Lino cigars and Davidoff mini-cigarillos.

As the smoke begins to rise and the Quarter to beckon, call for a taxi and anticipate your next move.
