A.O.C. The name stands for Appellation d’Origine Contrôllée, the French system that designates and controls geographic place names for wines and also certain foods, such as cheeses. It’s an apt name for a restaurant that serves up farmhouse cheeses, charcuterie, handcrafted wines by the glass and carafe, and much more.
A.O.C. is the right restaurant at the right moment. The place is an instant hit and on any given night, it’s humming with the energy of such well-loved places as L’Ami Louis in Paris. The wine flows. The little dishes just keep coming, and somehow people are eating more and more adventurously than usual. The problem is nobody wants to leave.
