Lioco Wine Co.

Our private label Chardonnay was produced in collaboration with our friends at Lioco Wine Co. in California. Lioco was created by Matt Licklider and Kevin O'Connor who are inspired by traditional European wine-growing practices in creating their own elegant wines.

Since 2014, we have featured a proprietary coffee blend that we serve at all of our restaurants that was created with our friends at Stumptown Coffee Roasters. Why Stumptown? The brand is extremely selective in how it sources its ingredients and sets the industry standard for “Direct Trade” coffee.

Chateau Mas Neuf + Le Petit Village

In 2012, Luc Baudet, the owner and winemaker at Chateau Mas Neuf in the southern Rhone Valley in France, set aside part of his 2011 vintage for us to sell as proprietary Happy Cooking wine. We named this "Le Petit Village" or "The Little Village" which references our West Village home base and the little village of establishments we have created here.

Carton Brewing + Wiscovation

In 2013, our friendship with Carton Brewery co-owner Augie Carton led to the Wiscovation beer that was once served at all of our restaurants. The "Hoppy Red Cream Ale" was a nod to New Jersey red and Wisconsin's great dairies and cream.

Sixpoint Brewery + Little Wisco Special

In early 2011 we introduced Little Wisco Special, a proprietary beer made with our friends from Sixpoint Brewery in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The Little Wisco Special was a crisp, medium-bodied, highly quaffable 5.6% ABV beer that was terrific on its own or with food. The Wisconsin way!
