More About

Aqua's wine list is immense: There are nine pages of pinot noirs alone, with many hard-to-find treasures scattered throughout. At our waiter's suggestion we enjoyed a glass of buttery Morgan chardonnay with the scallops and violet La Bete pinot with the tuna. Both were delicious, but whether they were worth the high price -- $14.50 and $13, respectively -- is between you and your pocketbook. Tea at Aqua makes a good dessert-time option, served as it is in the leaf with ceremony and all the proper accouterments. Not unlike Aqua itself, the service is a modern classic in a town famous for its myriad culinary options.
