Show 39, September 7, 2013: Martin Riese, General Manager of Ray’s & Stark Bar at LACMA

Martin Riese of Rays and Stark BarMartin Riese, the General Manager of the Patina Group’s Ray’s & Stark Bar at The Los Angeles County Museum of Art on the Miracle Mile, joined us.

Martin is Los Angeles’ only certified Water Sommelier. During his time managing fine-dining restaurants in Germany (before returning to Los Angeles) he researched and wrote the definitive guidebook to mineral waters around the world. A water tasting of a flight of mineral waters at Ray’s will demonstrate there are different flavor characteristics of various mineral waters which, by definition, must come from a source.

At Ray’s he has just launched their first Water Menu with some twenty selections from around the world. It’s a great alternative for guests who want a festive beverage to pair with their meal but perhaps need to stay away from alcohol. It’s all done with a light touch and Martin is an amiable guide.
