Taking its name from the highway, Route Nationale 74, which runs directly through the Burgundy region of France, RN74 is a wine-centric French inspired restaurant.
RN74’s wine program, curated by Mina Group wine director and James Beard Award-winning author Rajat Parr, focuses heavily on the greatest producers and regions of Burgundy. However, the well-balanced list also showcases international and domestic selections. RN74 has been awarded Wine Spectator’s highest honor, the “Grand Award” every year it has been eligible starting in 2010.
RN74’s menus are clearly inspired by the wine program; built on a foundation of regional French cuisine, yet market driven with refined, modern American influences. Executive Chef Michael Lee Rafidi embraces the modern French bistro moniker and stays true to the restaurant’s roots.
Menu highlights include; Burgundian Escargot Croissants, Vadouvan-Spiced Smoked Bone Marrow, Shrimp Bisque with Pickled Corn, Lobster Thermidor, and a Whole-Roasted Crown of Duck for Two.
Every Monday, Sommelier David Castleberry opens a magnum with special stature during dinner service to be served by the glass.
Offered periodically, follow RN74 on Instagram to see when these Unicorn Wines (rare and special bottlings) are being poured at RN74. From very hard-to-find bottles, limited productions and other wines impossible to replicate, you won’t want to miss Castleberry’s Unicorn Wines.
