Asia Society 亚洲协会

725 Park Avenue
New York, USA

A nice little hub for Asiaphile.

On Fridays, the ground floor host a social networking, with a simply bar and foods. The other end of the lobby is the gift shop.

The drink and food at social is very limited (not a complaint). But the music is inappropriate – tooooo loud to have a conversation. I think light jazz will do.

… the exhibits …

Serena’s Wine Bar Cafe

1268 2nd Ave
New York, NY 10065

Won’t return.

Their wine is not too good and service is so so.

I’ve two reds: Sangiovese, Toscana La Lecciaia 2010 and Bordeaux Chateau haut Heyruguet 2016. Between the two, Bordeaux is better.

Both are $13 a glass (retail at $16.99 and $11.99 a bottle on vivino), NOT complaining how much they charge but wondering why can’t they serve better quality wines. Which brings me to Barcibo Enoteca on B’way that served excellent Italian wines but it had closed … hmmmm … Was it because the cost of better wines cost their business?

The skinless almonds are really good. The olives are looking tired and too many, just not appetizing. The cheeses on the Small Cheese Plates are good.

… Forgot to ask if the bar is named after the tennis great -:)
