On the heels of naming Willis Loughhead chef, Geoffrey Zakarian’s flagship, Country , has a new wine director, William Rhodes. Rhodes, formerly of the Carlyle and Per Se, is an intense young man who looks like Clark Kent and has all the assurance of a dean of students. He plans to expand Country's wine program, as well as develop a cocktail list based on seasonal ingredients, according to a press release. Let's hope there are a few affordable bottles on the list when he's done, so appreciating it won't be wholly an intellectual undertaking.
