The seasonal winter menu pulls inspiration from regional American, European, and Asian culinary traditions to create seasonal dishes that focus on their relationship to wine. Entrees of russet-potato gnocchi with winter squash, chanterelle mushroom, and pecorino ($11 for half portion, $20 for full portion) edify taste buds along with penne pasta with vietnamese spiced pork and beef bolognese ragu ($10 for half portion, $19 for full portion) and grenache-braised beef short rib with glazed root vegetables and rosemary ($26). Co-owner and certified wine educator Suzanne McGrath links each dish on the menu with a suggested wine pairing.

The Curious Grape

The Curious Grape began as a wine shop—one so focused on acquainting customers with new flavors it was always quick to offer a sample. The owners' passion for complex aromas and painstaking quality control carries over into the restaurant, where executive chef Delian DiPietro serves dishes crafted from locally sourced ingredients. Because of seasonal availability of produce and seafood, all of the entrees—such as the duck, the cobia, the gnocchi with braised lamb, and the wagyu beef—find perfect mates with equally seasonal varietals from the rotating wine list. The Curious Grape's food and beverage menus have attracted plenty of accolades, among them a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and Shirlington's only RAMMY Award nominated restaurant for 2014.
