Upscale Casual

Part of Chef Michael Tusk

Verjus is an exciting new concept from Michael and Lindsay Tusk owners of Quince and Cotogna Restaurant.

Opened in January 2019, Verjus is a Cave á Manger; an unfamiliar concept in the landscape of the American food and beverage industry but one that has been popularized over the last 30 years throughout Parisian dining scene. The Cave á Manger merges both the traditional Bar á Vin and the cave or wine merchants. Born out of archaic Parisian licensing laws that forbade wine retailers to open and serve bottles of wine in their own stores without offering food to patrons these wine bars / shops now offer some of the most exciting drinking and dining experiences in Paris.

The Cave á Manger typically marries simply prepared high quality ingredients with wines sourced from a diverse array of wine regions with an emphasis on lesser encountered appellations, responsibly farmed terroir and vignerons on the vanguard of natural wine making.
