BEST WINE LIST (1998)
Just as you can never step in the same river twice, you'd be hard-pressed to encounter the same selection of wines at Goodfellow's from one visit to the next: The list, which comprises some 400 wines, is constantly changing. One reason for the frequent updates is the fact that the restaurant has been promoting small vineyards and cultivating relationships with vintners for so many years that grateful winemakers frequently ship a few bottles of their finest, hardest-to-acquire wines--and Goodfellow's doesn't hesitate to put these wines on the list, even with only a couple of bottles in stock. The wait staff is particularly adept at making recommendations and pointing out new arrivals. And those wine dinners! If only we could manage to remember to sign up before they were all sold out.
