What You'll Get
If grapes could talk, they'd recount their dreams, the first time they got plucked, and the first time they felt victimized by nature's rumor mill—the vine. Taste the tales of the grape with today's Groupon at Cellar19 in Council Bluffs, IA. Choose from two options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of casual fare and wine
- For $7, you get $15 worth of casual fare and wine
Cellar19 compiles a menu of freshly made sandwiches, salads, and appetizers to pair with their array of international wines. Select a bottle from the wooden racks lining the restaurant, or settle in for a laid-back lunch with an order of baked brie topped with apple slices, almonds, and berry preserves ($9) or cool shrimp cocktail ($8). Slices of bread bind high quality meats and fresh toppings to create 19 different hot and cold sandwiches, such as chicken cordon bleu with swiss-cheese-topped chicken breast and tavern ham ($6.99). The veggie crisp courts coy herbivores with a medley of avocado, sprouts, and other greenery on a baguette spread with white-wine mustard ($6.99). Glasses of the Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling ($6) compliment crisp vegetables; the Windmill zinfandel ($7) boasts bold raspberry flavors to match heartier fare such as Cellar19's French dip ($6.99) or flannel salads.
Art from local craftspeople lines the chic eatery's dark walls, where guests have the option of sitting along the polished wine bar or at tables to make alluring eye contact with a date. An outdoor patio facilitates al fresco snacking and allows diners to flaunt their libations in front of responsible birds that still have to fly themselves home.
