Thanks to cartoons, many Americans believe that the correct way to taste wine is to take a sip, then witness something so shocking that it causes them to involuntarily expectorate. Skip the spit takes and sample wine correctly with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of wine and small plates at Mignon, located on East Sixth Street. Mignon is a newly opened wine bar serving a menu filled with taste-bud-dampening libations and small bites. Liquid offerings include champagne, wine, and beer from many worldly locales. To sop up the sophisticated suds, Mignon offers a multifarious cheese and small-plate menu that includes a rotating selection of highly prized cheese from around the globe, as well as salads, charcuterie, tartines, sandwiches, and dessert. Cozy up to the central wood bar and admire exposed brick walls under romantic mood lighting that makes exposed brick walls irresistible to humans. Check out the full menu here.
- Tucked into what was once a tailor’s shop on Sixth Street’s Gallery Row, the tiny new establishment uncorks the finest esoteric varietals (especially off-the-beaten-path French finds) alongside small plates, charcuterie, and cheeses… – Daily Candy
- Mignon was exactly what I wanted last night--a relaxing wine bar with an adventurous list and a sommelier/owner who was attentive and friendly to both wine neophytes and experts alike. – Mira L., Yelp
