The Bedford Burger with an elegant Napa Valley Cabernet SauvignonBedford & Co.
118 E. 40th Street, New York NY 10016
“The Bedford Burger is a classic with a decadent twist. Topped with Bloomsday Cheddar, sweet caramelized onions and salty, savory pork belly. I have chosen to pair it with a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Concentrated, complex, juicy, and elegant, it has a fine structural backbone that more than balances the richness of the burger.” — Sarah Tracey, Sommelier
Wood is the star at the Renwick Hotel’s Bedford & Co. Here, chef-owner John DeLucie takes American classics and gives them a smoky, wood-fired twist—including the restaurant’s signature burger. Grilled over a wood fire, the Bedford Burger is layered with melted farmhouse cheddar, topped with a thick-cut slab of pork belly, and set inside an ever-so-slightly sweet Martin’s potato roll. Pair this burger’s complex flavors with and equally complex, fruit-forward Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
