Another Dismal Cocktail Experience in Albany

13jackswine1

Two days after this drinking debacle at La Serre comes this glass of wine served to me at Jack’s Oyster House. I don’t know what is going on with the restaurants of downtown Albany regarding how to properly prepare, measure, and serve a drink, but things are getting out of hand when an establishment like Jack’s allows its waiters to pour wine like this. The proportion is fine. But what is going on with the wetness – both inside AND outside of the glass?! Even I, admittedly not a wine expert by any means, know this is not how to present it. I almost – almost – sent this one back. I mean, is that dish-rinsing water? Tap water? Disinfecting water? Water at all??? I wiped it off as best I could and carried on. Come on Albany, we are better than this.
