Five Finds on Friday: Jonathan Wheeler of Trump Winery

On Fridays, we feature five food finds selected by local chefs and personalities.  This week’s picks come from Jonathan Wheeler, Sparkling Winemaker at Trump Winery.  Next weekend, May 4 and 5, Trump Winery will be celebrating its 2012 Vintage Release with samples of the new 2012 Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Chardonnay, and Rosé.  Wheeler’s picks:

1)  Oysters on the Half Shell at Blue Light Grill and Raw Bar.  “Super fresh, tastes just like the ocean should.”

2)  Ginger Braised Pork Tamale with Mole Sauce at Commonwealth Restaurant.  “Goes great with their En Fuego cocktail.”

3)  Hudson Valley Duck breast with Navy Bean Cassoulet at L’Etoile.   “Great savory flavors.”

4)  Steak au Poivre at the Downtown Grill.  “Anytime I want perfectly cooked steak I go here.”

5)  Umali Brûlée at Savour Restaurant.  “A puff pastry with pudding, candied pecans, and coconut that is a great way to end the meal.”
