The perfect food and wine pairing is like the fateful meeting of destined lovers, best celebrated with a tiny mock wedding presided over by a curmudgeonly pepper mill with a heart of gold. Combine cuisine and wine the way nature intended with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of artisan cheeses, chocolates, and wine at Flight Wine Bar (or $20 worth if redeemed Tuesday through Thursday).
At Flight, guests gather around aged wooden tables and leather reclining areas, all framed by towering walls of bottle-lined bliss. Merry imbibers can partake in a flight, or a trio of tastings. An olive-oil flight engages flavors from Italy, Portugal, and Greece, and arrives accompanied by a socially stimulating sliced baguette ($8). The South American wine flight, tres rojas, unifies Chilean and Argentinean graperades ($14), while the French flight, ménage a' trois (or, menagerie of trees), pays homage to the many Parisian wine trees that have fallen without a sound ($14). For an opulent end to the evening, indulge your inner emperor with the chocolate flight, dark-chocolate truffles (hand crafted by Hedonist Artisan Chocolates) served aside dipped orange peels and sesame leaves ($9).
Flight Wine Bar
When it comes to wine, Flight Wine Bar follows the same philosophy as Goldilocks: Why settle for one when you could try three? Trios of wines from across the world are thus a mainstay of their menu at Flight Wine Bar.
Of course, Flight Wine Bar also has wines available by the glass or bottle. In addition, the staff furnishes tables with artisanal snacks. Guests can order imported cheeses, such as the sycamore-leaf-wrapped Spanish valdeón. The dessert chocolates are all handcrafted, from dipped fruit to fine truffles.
