Champagne of Lounges

Caviar an champagne the way they're meant to be

With your repast, Flûte offers eighteen champagnes and sparkling wines by the glass and many more by the bottle; six-ounce glasses run from $8 to $25 and bottles from $25 to $495. There's also a $19 Magic Flute tasting of three champagnes (in 2.5 ounce mini-Flûtes), and endless imaginative champagne cocktails. Our bottle of the cheapest $25 plonk, Seaview from Australia, was just fine -- no complex nose or long finish, just some refreshing citrus/floral top notes and a lot of festive bubbles.

To finish Flûte adds the third "C" to complete the perfect champagne/caviar match: chocolate. The not-too-sweet Chocolate Bomb is actually terrific, one of the few specimens of this dessert I've sampled in years that I haven't wanted to bomb out of existence. But a more suitably elegant end might be just one of the sumptuous chocolates Flûte sells by the piece, flown in from Paris's La Maison du Chocolat -- perhaps a single Salvado, dark chocolate intensified by fresh raspberry essence. It's not a lot of food. But who could ask for anything more?

Really, there's nothing that doesn't go well with champagne, even spaghettini
