New York City’s first official sports bistro, Vintage61 opened near the new ESPN headquarters in New York City’s most historical area, the Seaport District.
Vintage61 is a partnership with Jason Casano, Laurent Vasseur and Frank Casano. Vintage61 will blend sports with wine, and as the name suggests, comes from the year 1961, which was one of the best Yankee seasons of all time, and one of the best vintages in Bordeaux. The menu, created by Executive Chef Eric Lind, consists of American bistro fare with French influences to complement the curated wine list which includes moderate price points. In addition to the food and wine, the restaurant will also have a full bar featuring original Vintage61 specialty cocktails.
