Atlantic salmon and tuna tartare are popular favorites among new full-size entrees at The Tasting Room Uptown Park, which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this September, complimenting their staple roster of small plates.

The Tasting Room

Since opening in 2003, The Tasting Room has morphed from a wine bar to a full-service restaurant with four locations—all while retaining its wine-bar charm and racking up numerous awards and accolades. Diners can select libations from a list that boasts more than 200 wines, pairing them with contemporary dishes whipped up by executive chef Jonathan LeBlanc. TTR offerings run the gamut from small plates of mini grilled sandwiches and classic bruschetta to entrees including creole-spiced quail and Jamaican jerk chicken breast, which diners can savor at windowside tables or on the plant-ensconced patio and garden area.

The eatery doesn't just sate hunger for eclectic classics and thirst for fermented grapes. It also hosts live music, meetings, and events such as 2011's Grapes vs. Grains, which pitted beer against wine in a liquid wrestling match. The owners have their hands in other culinary enterprises, too. There's the Houston Cellar Classic, for example, an annual celebration of food and wine. Also popular is MAX's Wine Dive, a destination for gourmet comfort food best defined by its slogan—"Fried chicken and champagne? ... Why the hell not?"


Tips from Groupon Customers

  • “We loved the atmosphere, the food was great, and our server was helpful and friendly. ”

  • “Despite poor waiter and screwed up orders, the food was very good, the band Pete Simple was great and the wine good, but on the low side of value.”

  • “the pork chop was cooked beautifully, with a very subtle flavor - perfect the stuffed quail was also good, but the pork chop beat it”
