When Food and Wine said Houston’s dining scene is the most exciting it’s ever been, it made our mouths’ collectively water in anticipation for our visit to the area in July (for our Cab & Credit design trade CEU event). We’re ready to eat and drink our way through the city that is creating a

A common flaw in glass wine cellar design — for those of us who love minimalist design, anyway — is the common habit of adding so much wine racking that the amount of light passing through the structure is limited. That’s why we love the Eddie Merlot’s (Bloomfield Hills, Mi.) wine cellar soooooo much. The

Building a brand is one of the toughest aspects of sticking out in the California wine business. Avensole Winery leans on a smart tasting room wine wall to do some of the heavy lifting. Using an impressive 17-feet of wall space, they show off their beautiful bottles in a balanced, label-forward design, cutting out a

Being able to look out over the pristine blue waters of the Pacific with a glass of amazing local wine in hand seems like a dream scenario for most of us. Unless you live in, or are visiting, Monterey, the heart of one of California’s hidden wine region gems and the northern tip of the epically

Located 950 feet above the ground, 71Above  is the highest restaurant west of the Mississippi. That’s far from the most appealing aspect of the haute American restaurant in downtown LA. Created by native Angelino and owner Emil Eyvazoff, this towering restaurant has dazzled locals and tourists alike with its insane views from the 71st floor of

For years, high-end steakhouses have drawn their top clientele through the doors more often by storing their wines for them. Locker programs at national giants such as Capitol Grille and Morton’s, and independent places like Guard & Grace (Denver) alike proven their worth. They improve customer retention and satisfaction while driving more revenue. Here’s how they work:

We aren’t afraid to tell you we judge a book by its cover. Often. In our collective dining out experience, we find that restaurateurs, winemakers, and retailers who take the time design their space well — and show off a stellar wine collection — tend to care immensely about the vino, experience, and food they may offer.
