About Lenny Young

Lenny Young serves as Director of Wine Operations with Waterstreet Café + Bar. Under Lenny's guidance, Waterstreet has received Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence for the past 12 years running, "for having one of the most outstanding restaurant wine lists in the world." Lenny recently completed his Olive Oil Sommelier Certification through The International Culinary Center and The Olive Oil Times Education Lab. He has added an extra virgin olive oil menu to Waterstreet's portfolio, and is working with Waterstreet's kitchen to renovate the restaurant's use of olive oil in its cuisine. The extra virgin olive oil tastings that we are scheduling are the most recent expression of the "old friends" working relationship between Waterstreet and Grand Vin that traces back more than 20 years to Jeff Taylor's former restaurant Louisa.
