“A classic, well-balanced Napa Valley Cabernet with a good amount of ripe black fruits, toasted, exotic spices, and well-defined minerality pairs nicely with the lamb burger and gives it an extra layer of umami. A really juicy wine for a really juicy burger!” — A.J. Ojeda-Pons, Wine Director
Step into The Lambs Club to experience Art Deco-inspired opulence of days gone by. Geoffrey Zakarian’s Midtown time machine is a beautifully decorated place to enjoy his signature Modern American Cuisine alongside inventive cocktails. Try the Bar-Only Colorado Lamb Burger – created exclusively for Somms and Sliders, this pretzel bun-nestled burger is served with a crown of Manchego cheese, Piquillo pepper marmalade, fried pickles, and a smear of Dijonaise. It pairs perfectly with a glass of balanced-yet-weighty Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon—the ripe black fruit flavors, toasted notes, and defined minerality offers a nice counterpoint to the complex flavors of the lamb burger.
