If humankind never learned to play with its food, it would never have learned to play with its ingredients, and the world would be one bereft bowl of gruel. Taste the fruits of culinary creativity with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a four-course dinner for two at Indulge Bistro & Wine Bar in Highlands Ranch (an $80 value).
Indulge Bistro & Wine Bar's kitchen plates up an elegant and evolving four-course, prix-fixe menu, helping earn its reputation as one of Denver’s best wine bars by CityVoters. Break out of gastronome gates with the first-course tomato bisque followed by a tricolor beet salad, in which blue-cheese crumbles sashay with red onions on a dance floor of mixed greens. Then cozy up to an entrée, such as Chilean sea bass decorated with a mango-infused white-wine butter sauce and bordered by asparagus or steak oscar, an 8-oz. grilled filet mignon topped with crab meat and dressed in hollandaise sauce, and finished with fresh lemon and asparagus and red potatoes as sides. Indulge also serves vegetarian and gluten-free options by request.
The dessert course sates sweet teeth with crème brûlée, Grand Marnier bread pudding, or vanilla ice cream in a cookie cup. Indulge Bistro & Wine Bar's sommeliers carefully curate wine pairings, fitting a varietal to each course or hair style for an additional $15 per person. Indulge Bistro & Wine Bar's prix-fixe menu changes roughly every six weeks, so diners can expect to encounter delightful seasonal varieties.
Indulge Wine School
Indulge Wine School's staff of educators, such as Kris in Jacksonville, a wine expert and blogger, expands wine knowledge with ease, having turned the revelry-steeped tassels of nearly 3,000 graduates. Classes of 12–20 take place in venues throughout the United States, as students swirl and sip their study materials and nibble complimentary appetizers. Every class ends with a Q&A session, during which potation professors shine a light on oenophilic mysteries including tannin content and regional differences. Afterward, students continue to ferment knowledge at home with a complimentary electronic copy of Indulge's book A Fun and Informative Introduction to the Wonderful World of Wine, a food-and-wine-pairing chart, and a top-10 list of wine-buying tips.
