Belinda Chang is the fabulously fun and talented Wine Director at NYC’s The Modern restaurant. As one of Head Thirsty Girl, Leslie Sbrocco’s favorite places to eat in New York City, The Modern is located at the Museum of Modern Art. This hot spot is home to one of the country’s top women of wine, Belinda Chang. Formerly, the cellar queen of places like Charlie Trotter’s in Chicago and Fifth Floor in San Francisco, Belinda has been nominated for a James Beard award, appeared on national television and worked on three cookbooks. When asked what she’s drinking now after a long day at the restaurant, Belinda says “Zind-Humbrecht Pinot d’Alsace 2007 (low commitment for my wallet, delicious, Olivier Humbrecht is the bomb, and I just love the way Pinot d’Auxerrois rolls off of the tongue) a beer that we made with Six Point Brewery called “Dr Klankenstein” (perfect for after a long day at the restaurant, we have it on tap!). Her enthusiasm, elegance and contagious smile, make us honored to have Belinda in our Thirsty Girl ranks.
