When chef John McKibben first opened Grape Street Cafe in 1997, his small restaurant took a back seat to a large front-of-the-house retail area where customers could purchase house-made sauces, salads, and high-quality wines. Though the concept quickly transitioned to focus on the fresh, house-made dishes flying out of his kitchen, McKibben has held on to his retail license and continues to encourage his diners to finish their meal by picking up a bottle of wine to go or commissioning a self-portrait painted with balsamic vinegar.
With the exception of a handful of rotating nightly specials, the menu has stayed largely the same, and Chef McKibben credits the cuisine as the eatery's 14-year secret to success. Dinner finds the shop's signature hot sandwiches, creamy pastas, and pizzas sharing top billing alongside nationally inspired entrees such as a baked Alaskan halibut topped with lemon beurre-blanc and Colorado lamb in a sweet-and-sour mint glaze. However, the diverse menu is designed to complement the restaurant’s real draw: its extensive wine selection. Up to 90 vinos are available by the glass each day, with selections that hail from as near as Napa and as far away as Mosel, Bordeaux, Rioja, and Mos Eisley.
Nora's Wine Bar & Osteria fosters a social dining experience with a menu of authentic sharable Italian plates and an innovative way to serve wine that opens up dozens of eclectic bottles for the tasting. Consummate serial monogamists, each of Nora's dinner courses would prefer to be paired up with a glass of wine, making the pre-paired cheese and wine flight of nine cheeses and three wines ($28 per person, must have at least two participants) an elegantly orchestrated delight. An appetizer of bruschette, such as eggplant or chick peas and sardine (choice of three for $10), a selection of small bites ($10–$15), and pizzas ($15) make palatable passables. Dive fork-first into creatively concocted entrees, such as the crêpe lasagna ($12.50) or the half rabbit served five ways ($32). Or, keep it traditional with organic grass-fed lamb chops ($24 small/$44 large). The lunch menu pares down the dinner menu and adds a selection of panini served with fries or salad, such as the wild boar with roasted mushrooms ($13.50). The lunch menu also offers a pasta trio tasting, which includes a glass of sangria, chef's crostini, unlimited tastings of three different pastas, and gelato for $17.
