A well-balanced Napa Valley Zinfandel paired nicely to the HM3 Cheeseburger

Harold's Meat + Three 2 Renwick Street New York, NY 10013

“This voluptuous, well-balanced burger should be met with an equally voluptuous wine. That’s why I chose a well-balanced Napa Valley Zinfandel. The notes of leather and cedar found in the wine embrace the smokiness of this burger. The roundness of Zinfandel’s fruit really marries well with the burger’s sweet and tangy condiments.” — Cheron Cowan, Wine Director

Chef Harold Moore’s slick, Manhattanite version of the southern-style “meat and three” offers all those things, and does not disappoint. But resist the urge to try his dinosaur-sized (and delicious) prime rib, and order the burger instead. Available only at brunch and dinner, the double-patty HM3 Burger tastes like the In-N-Out burger’s more sophisticated sibling, if said sibling had an expense account. Wine Director Cheron Cowan recommends washing each beefy bite down with a fruity, spicy, and robust Napa Valley Zinfandel.
