A top New York City wine expert who was once named “sommelier of the year” by Food & Wine Magazine has been charged with setting outdoor dining sheds in Manhattan on fire. Surveillance video allegedly shows Caleb Ganzer stroll up to an outdoor restaurant and light it on fire. Ganzer, 35, co-owns Tony Wine Bar in Manhattan. He’s also accused of setting fire to the upscale Italian restaurant, Forsythia, which is said to rival Ganzer’s wine bar. He was charged with two felony counts of arson.
