Los Angeles Restaurant Serves Water So Fancy it Demands a Sommelier
Los Angeles' Ray's & Stark Bar sure thinks so. The restaurant features a new water menu that features "varietals of water from around the world." You can even stage your own water tasting for a mere $12. Why, that's only $12 more than if you filled up a bunch of cups from your sink. It's a bargain! To prove the naysayers wrong, they've hired a bona fide water sommelier, in the form of manager Martin Riese . He has the certification and everything.
Different kinds of water are also suggested as meal pairings. I hear the wet, plain tasting one goes great with the octopus.
