Wine and fine food is a matched pair, like Cagney and Lacey or Wayne Gretzky and the only thing people remember about hockey. Slapstick your face with flavor using today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sushi, seafood, fine wine, and more at Funky Monkey Wine Company.
Founded by directors of the oenophilic Tasters Guild International, Funky Monkey Wine Company celebrates fine vino by stacking up more than 100 bottles of wine and decorating them with a lively profusion of sushi, seafood, and steaks. Crack open the wine list to find the grapey beverage that best suits your parched palate, whether it's St. Supery Virtu's 2006 meritage or a 2008 Acrobat pino grigio. Funky Monkey's eclectic menu sates lubricated taste buds with scrumptious selections such as the spicy avocado salad with chopped ahi tuna and sriracha-infused mayo ($13) or the eight-ounce organic Deep Creek Ranch burger ($15). Persons with permanently melded chopstick-digits can sample delicacies from Funky Monkey's immense sushi selection, such as the Maui Wowie maki, an infusion of kiwi, salmon, crab, and tuna piled atop a cucumber-and-eel roll ($16).
Funky Monkey evokes a tranquil romantic vibe with hardwood floors and candlelit tables, which pair nicely with the chance to sample a world-class collection of wines without ever having to set foot in Willy Wonka's dangerously whimsical vineyards.
