Winter is the time of year for warm and flavorful meals, and it’s important to choose the appropriate wine to compliment the richness of comfort food. There is no definitive rule about which wines you should drink in the wintertime, but I enjoy a hearty, full-bodied red during the colder months.

I love oysters. They’re an awesome bar snack, they go great with beer, wine and cocktails and they’re good for you. I personally enjoy them with good Champagne or an ice cold microbrew. It’s great to try eating and serving oysters in various preparations like Oysters Rockefeller or fried and topped with tangy remoulade on a po’ boy, but the popularity of enjoying raw oysters on the half shell is at an all-time high.

Whether you’re a ‘sushi person’ or not, you should give Hudson 29’s rolls a spin! Our chefs have taken a fun, fresh approach to sushi, creating whimsical, delicious combinations that are simple, straightforward and unintimidating. These are just a few tasty choices from our eclectic sushi selection –

It’s easier than you think to choose a beverage that will pair perfectly with the briny richness of most any oyster. There are numerous types of oysters with varying flavors and finishes, so you have a wide-ranging selection of choices to pair with those tasty little mollusks.

We've talked about the versatility of Pinot Noir and how it’s a surefire crowd pleaser around the holidays. Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with the flavors of the season, so it is almost always a great choice for your holiday meal, but in case you want to really offer your guests some great variety, I have some additional suggestions to serve along some popular winter main dishes.

You may have noticed varying shades of pink wine appearing more frequently on bar tops and dining tables recently. In the past few years, rosé has come into its own and is swiftly becoming chic and fashionable. Although its popularity is rapidly expanding, rosé is still a mystery to some – so I thought I’d answer a few common questions I’ve been hearing about rosé.

We always strive to reinvent the classics, which is why we introduced carbonated cocktails at M last year and included them in our beverage program at Hudson 29 when it opened in March of this year. We use a carbonated cocktail system to add effervescence to our spirits in house. When you order one of our carbonated cocktails, it will be served in a glass soda bottle that’s popped open tableside and poured over ice. When creating cocktails, we always consider flavor and presentation – this method adds an extra layer of texture and fizziness – allowing you to experience it with all of your senses.

Brian Hinshaw Took Top Honor at Kitchen Hero Cook Off Challenge, Highlights Childhood Hunger Campaign

We tend to associate Champagne with holidays and celebrations. I always say there is no reason why you can’t enjoy a glass (or two) any day of the week. Champagne is an incredibly versatile wine with healthful benefits, so why not treat it as more of an everyday libation?

Ever since graduating from the CIA at Hyde Park, I’ve dreamed of opening a restaurant in New York City. Now, 20 years after we opened the doors of our first restaurant, Cameron’s American Bistro, we are elated to finally venture into the Big Apple.

As you probably know, the popularity of Pinot Noir has really exploded in the last several years. But what a lot of people don’t know is how much fun it can be to explore how differently this grape behaves depending on where it’s grown. A French Burgundy may taste quite different than a Pinot Noir produced in California, which may also taste unlike one from Oregon.

We recently recognized five associates and one restaurant for their outstanding performance in 2014. The awards were presented at our annual Leadership Conference, which was held at The Ivory Room earlier this month.

One of our greatest and most exciting endeavors in the development of our newest concept, The Barn at Rocky Fork Creek, has been the creation of our whiskey list for our bourbon bar. It is, in fact, more than a list – it’s a whiskey book. Our efforts have been keenly focused on assembling an unparalleled selection of whiskeys for our first-ever bourbon-centric bar.

We recently had a chance to catch up with Andrea Hoover, one of our resident cocktail experts, to pick her brain about her career, the world of mixology and what’s happening here at Cameron Mitchell Restaurants (CMR). Andrea is a lead bar trainer who works closely with the director of our beverage program, Ryan Valentine.
