Grapes naturally exist in three forms: solid, liquid, and raisin. Imbibe the fruit's most drinkable state with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of wine at Continental Treat. Though this Groupon is valid only for wine, customers must buy one eatable menu item at an additional cost.
Elegant bistro Continental Treat spouts out a wine menu of more than 100 bottled wines on friendly terms with Continental Treat's European-inspired cuisine. Inaugurate the onset of springtime puddle parties with a bottle of the Casa Lapostolle ($42), a Chilean merlot whose sturdy body allows for the elegant juggling of plum and cherry aromas. Those requiring white teeth to match igloo décor can opt instead for white wines such as the Canadian Sumac Ridge chardonnay ($40), a custard and apple bouquet with citrus and mineral flourishes. Single serving elixirs also avail themselves, such as the New Zealand Oyster Bay pinot noir ($10 a glass) or the Italian Folonari pinot grigio ($10 a glass). Then, relieve belly floods by sending down appetizer life rafts such as the steak a la tartare ($18.95), raw beef tenderloin basking alongside toasted garlic rye bread, or the wild mushroom and sauerkraut pierogi ($11.95).
Continental Treat Fine Bistro
Continental Treat Fine Bistro's executive chef Elizabeth Palmowski changes her menu of European cuisine on a daily basis, incorporating seasonal ingredients from local markets whenever possible. She helms a diverse kitchen staff, which includes sous chefs from Hungary, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic who help bring her creations to life. The bistro crafts seared meats marinated with beer, wine and spirits that hail from their staff's Central and Eastern European hometowns. Palmowski and her team can also accommodate dietary restrictions, offering entire menus of vegetarian and gluten-free meals.
Candlelight and live jazz bands help keep the mood elegant at dinnertime as guests sip Old and New World wines or one of many Trappist beers. To familiarize guests with its massive list of beverages, the restaurant hosts informational wine and beer nights, allowing partcipants to sample libations from around the world, expand their palates, and learn how to sophisticatedly perform the perfect spit-take.
