Cafe Select

Another restaurant to come all the way to BED-STUY this weekend is Cafe Select, offering modern Swiss menu at theCOMPOUNDbrooklyn + Rural Haiti Project.
Here's something about their rather unusual wine selection...

New York's first Alpine wine list, to complement chef Jo Herde's modern Swiss menu. ” That translates into a refreshingly offbeat cellar that's 20 percent Swiss and 90 percent biodynamic or organically produced, with selections from Austria, Germany, France's Savoie and Rhône, and Italy's Alto Adige, Valle d'Aosta, and Piemonte. The house wine is Côtes du Rhône in a box, and goes for $7 a glass, $14 a carafe. Bates describes his personal favorite, a Luc Massy Dezaley Chemin de Fer Chasselas, as "mineral, bright, and fresh"—the sort of quaff that won't overpower Herde's sweet and savory pies, wurst salad with hard-boiled egg, and beef bouillon with strips of crêpe.
