Woodbury, NY - May 4th, 2016 - California's Napa Valley offers visitors a warm, casual, inviting environment and lifestyle, which embraces a special approach to dining. The region's fine wines, fresh ingredients and relaxed attitude have inspired the creation of Honig Grill (Woodbury, New York). The restaurant is now open at 8289 Jericho Turnpike, Woodbury, NY, with an introduction to the full, new concept slated for early March 2016.
Honig Grill is collaboration between restaurateur Brian Galligan, owner and operator of Il Mulino USA, LLC, and joint venture owner/partner Steven Raia, also of Il Mulino, with inspiration from Michael Honig's family and the wine crafters at Honig Vineyard and Winery (Rutherford, California).
Honig Grill is located at 8289 Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury, NY, and is open for business. Long Islanders looking for a taste of Napa Valley need to look no further than their mouthwatering menu & wine list to find the perfect pairing.
Honig Grill will feature a wide selection of wines from Honig, along with other top winemakers from northern California, at reasonable price points.
Honig Vineyard and Winery has gained an illustrious reputation for producing some of the world's best wines, including award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, for more than 35 years.
"The owners were presented with a rare opportunity to collaborate with an exceptional star on the American winemaking scene," said Jon Sherry, General Manager, Honig Grill. "Opportunities to work with a wine industry visionary like Michael Honig don't come along very often. We immediately embraced the chance to develop this concept and bring it to Long Island."
"The history and traditions of Napa Valley and our family's commitment to quality are hallmarks of our artisanal approach to fine wine making," said Michael Honig, President Honig Vineyard and Winery.
"We're excited to collaborate with Honig Grill to bring our wines and philosophy to a new audience. It's what we've wanted to do for some time. Honig Grill has created a true grill experience from the east, New York, and the best wine making traditions of the west, Napa Valley. While thousands of miles apart, we are perfectly aligned in our vision, passion and authenticity."
