Levi Dalton is at it again, gaining access to one of New York City’s most talked about sommeliers. In this case that’s Pascaline Lepeltier, sommelier of Rouge Tomate.

Rouge Tomate is notable for several things. One of the most interesting is that the original outpost was in Brussels. The success of the concept, which I’ll get to in a moment, spurred the owners to open Rouge Tomate NYC in the rather hyper-competitive environs of the region that separates the Upper East Side from Midtown East and Central Park South. 

Want proof that Rouge Tomate is a concept worth knowing more about?
