An Inside Look with Raj Vaidya Levi Dalton grabs another exclusive interview, this time Raj Vaidya, head sommelier of New York City’s restaurant Daniel. As one of the city’s, if not the country’s premier restaurants, Daniel attracts the most discerning diners, whether they be regulars or folks looking for a grand location to celebrate important events.

Daniel is one of the rarest of rare restaurants, the type that wows all of your senses. From the cooking to the design and of course the wine list, it is a place built for creating enchanted memories. Of course, a meal and service worthy of such memories comes at a price, and while a meal at Daniel is not inexpensive, listening to Raj discuss wine and the business of Daniel lends fascinating insight into why it is worth the tariff.

Listen in as Levi draws out some of Raj’s favorite wines, what he looks for when hiring new staff members, the history of Daniel and how the focus of the menu has moved towards pairing with lighter, more delicate wines.

60 E. 65th St., New York, NY
