Cover of first French edition of Bright Lights, Big City. Aka Journal of a Night Bird. Very noir, very Celine. Subsequent French editions have been printed with the original English title. #tbt

So happy to be with Barrett & Maisie on Father’s day. @johnbarrettmci @signedmaisie

Next up on my summer rereading the classics list. One of the finest erotic novels ever written from my late friend James Salter. The prose is dazzling, the descriptions of provincial France unmatched.

Fighting a nice McCloud River rainbow trout, which poses with me before returning to the river.

Brought my fly rod to Northern Cali but maybe should have brought skis. Mount Shasta looking cool in June.

One of the best dishes of my recent trip to Spain, tuna roe and cream at Cocina Hermanos Torres, a great Barcelona @michelinguide 2 star headed for 3. Twin brother chefs, great room with a big kitchen right in the middle. Incredible 15 course tasting menu. Hope to return @hermanostorres #tbt #throwbackthursday @curiousgourmet @david_is_good

At @pastisnyc friends and family. Spent many happy hours at the original Pastis despite telling Keith Mcnally 20 years ago that a restaurant in the meatpacking district probably wasn’t a great idea. I lived there at the time. Food better than ever. Photo by @nicolemillernyc who you can see in the mirror to the left.

A very tasty, very obscure, 1959 Rioja from the list at Disfrutar in Barcelona. This Michelin 2 star has El Bulli DNA—the three chefs all worked there and the food is similarly inventive. Gazpacho sandwich, liquid salad—nothing quite what it seemed but most of it delicious. If only the wine list had been as exciting as the tasting menu. The bottle pictured was one of the few treasures. @curious gourmet @david_is_good

The greatest salad I’ve ever eaten. And I don’t even think ”great” and “salad” belong in the same sentence. Part of a superb 15 course meal at @martinberasategui in San Sebastián @curiousgourmet @david_is_good

Flying to Madrid tonight with an old friend. Never get tired of this one.

Dinner a deux at home after a busy weekend. Wanted to drink some Chave Blanc after my great visit there. Suspected swordfish would be a good match. And I was right. The ‘97 was dark in color. Looked like a write off. And smelled oxidized at first. But sweet and rich on the palate. And then the nose cleaned up. Loved it. Read about my visit in my September @townandcountrymag column. #rhonewine #hermitage

Spring in New York. 70 degrees. Damn I’m glad to be back.

jaymcinerney

Finally home. Finally some real wine. A very delicate but delectable ‘71 Bouchard Chambertin. Probably way overcropped but the vintage and the vineyard show their excellence. Perfect reward after writing my latest @townandcountrymag column about the insane escalation of Grand Cru vineyard prices in #Burgundy

Ginger margarita at Sip Sip, Harbor Island, Bahamas. Man does not live by wine alone, especially in the islands.

Feeling absurdly healthy on my third day at @calaviespa with @signedmaisie. Father/daughter getaway/cleanse.

jaymcinerney

Wow! This will be at its peak in about 30 years and I won’t be around. So great to taste it now in its dewy youth before it goes into hibernation. #burgundy. #drc

I only reluctantly post food photos, in part because I don’t want to put @curiousgourmet out of business. But, hey, I’m in Paris. This is a game pie from my favorite Paris restaurant, L’Astrance, aka @lastrance. I think it’s mostly squab and foie Gras. New dish. But everything here is always great. Chef Pascal Barbot is always in the kitchen. Also had amazing meals at @david_toutain and @lepavillonledoyen

The Oscar Wilde suite at @lhotel_paris, my home away from home this week. He spent his final days here, and wrote, “My wallpaper and i are fighting a duel to the death.” I suspect he’d approve of the current very Wildeish walllpaper. #oscarwilde #findesiecle

Meursault with view. Coche Dury and Notre Dame for lunch at La Tour d’Argent.

Still crazy about her after all these years. #valentinesday2018

I don’t think I entirely approve of my meal at Gianni’s, the restaurant in the Versace mansion in Miami Beach, but the setting is hard to beat and my Huntsman suit in Loro Piana silk seersucker is looking pretty good. @huntsmansavilerow #miamibeach

Looking forward to reading this. And to hearing our recent interview on the Bret Easton Ellis podcast that just posted today. Hundredth BEE podcast. Congrats my friend. Https//www.patreon.com/breteastonellispodcast. #breteastonellis

Tater Tots with caviar and creme fraiche at @unionsquarecafe. Excellent start to my birthday dinner. Just the two of us tonight.

With my man @ericripert at @lebernardinny in my new @cifonelli_official navy windowpane suit. One of us is entirely sober. #threemichelinstars #hautecuisine

Omi beef, black truffle & 99 La Tache. What could be finer? Thanks @chefmasanyc. And @jeferylevy

jaymcinerney

Tragic start to last night’s dinner. My generous, hapless pal dropped an 89 Leroy Corton Charlemagne. We were tempted to lick the floor.

jaymcinerney

Strong lineup of Coche. Surprisingly the 01 CC was the unquestioned standout. Thanks Bill. Best present of the season. Along with the Truffles. #whiteburgundy #burgundy #cortoncharlemagne

jaymcinerney

My latest production. Great essays by @jancisrobinson , @ericasimov, @kermitlynchwine, @smdanler, Bill Buford, Auberon Waugh, @rexpickett, moi and many others. The perfect gift for the literary wino. #wine #essays

Somehow this Sunday-night-at-home ‘91 Chevillon Vaucrains is definitely getting me in the Holiday Spirit. #burgundy

Christmas Cheer 2018 at Doubles. Tried to keep spirits bright with my bespoke tartan smoking jacket from @huntsmansavilerow, a variation of which was worn by cohost @georgefarias10021.

Having an after dinner amaro on the terrace. I love New York in October.

After a weekend in California back east at &nickandtoniscafe in East Hampton with my beautiful daughter @signedmaisie drinking 2014 D’Angerville Meursault Santenots and 2014 Hirsch Vineyards San Andreas Fault Pinot Noir. @gdangerville @hirschvineyards

Corny? Or bold? I admit I couldn’t resist. Of course Barolo’s gonna win but happy to revisit Brunello. Damn I’m glad to be back in NYC. @babboristorante #barolo #brunello #iloveny

jaymcinerney

17 years ago there was a plume of smoke downtown. Sad to remember but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else today. #neverforget #iloveny

The best white wines of the summer, and the rarest. Mags of 88 Coche Perrieres and Corton Charlemagne. Won’t see these again #burgundy #Coche #chardonnay

With @brookeshields at the @nyacademyofart drawing party where @willcottonnyc tried to teach us how to draw nude models.

Very rare Christophe Roumier Charmes. Never seen another vintage. Delicious. Young. Actually won more votes than 91 Ponsot Clos St Denis. Thanks @neiltyson123 #burgundy #roumier

jaymcinerney

At le Bilbouquet in Sag Harbor with @ericripert. Looking fairly pleased with ourselves. I think we had canary for dinner.

RIP Einstein, our beloved emu, who became a local news star when he escaped a few years back and freaked out quite a few Bridgehampton residents as he strode about town.

King crab season again at Oriental Garden in Chinatown. This one looks big enough for me.

In the cellar at Chateau Lafite with my old pal @jancisrobinson in my new Cifonelli jacket getting psyched for our big tasting and dinner. Highlights were the ‘85, ‘76, ‘59, ‘55 (a great year in many regards) the ‘34 and the 1881. Wow! Very grateful to our hosts, the Rothschilds. #bordeaux #lafite #chateaulafiterothschild @cifonelli_official @lorenzocifonelli
