Rioja Celebration

Christopher DeLuna

La Fonda del Sol, NYC

The three-martini lunch may be a bygone ritual, but you can still get a generous dose of ’60s-era glamour at La Fonda del Sol. Experience this Midtown landmark, which has been reimagined as a modern tapas restaurant, when it visits the Beard House for a celebration of Rioja.
