Parings serves up elegant and eclectic fare with compatible selections from a prolific wine list. Situated within the cascading confines of a column-guarded mansion in Williamsville, Parings has plenty of elbow room for languidly sipping potables. Caribbean jerk steak skewers ($15) pair perfectly with the Central Coast pinot noir ($8 a glass) and a tri-color edible poncho. Share a plate of the nut-glazed brie ($14) and toast with glasses of the Ledgewood Creek 2007 chardonnay from Suisun Valley, California. In addition to table seating, you can relax on comfortable chairs and couches in a romantic atmosphere amid widescreen TVs that broadcast your darkest secrets.

Reviews

Parings Wine Bar was featured in the Buffalo News and the Amherst Bee. The bar can also be seen in this video from Artvoice TV; 64% of Urbanspooners recommend it:

  • Tidings of comfort and joy seem to rev up the ambience at Parings Wine Bar. It opened just a couple of months ago in a gracious old house in Williamsville. The building went up in the grand old era of wasted space, so tables and chairs stretch throughout the first floor. And the house is even reputed to be haunted. – Janice Okun, Buffalo News
  • The atmosphere was designed to be cozy and welcoming — redefining casual elegance. – Jessica L. Finch, Amherst Bee

Parings Wine Bar

Williamsville, NY. The early 20th century. A man guides his family’s horse-drawn carriage through the flurries of snow sweeping across their circular driveway before coming to a halt in front of a striking two-story home. The ride was long and chilly, but inside, homey warmth awaits. Today, teleportation discs may have replaced the horse and buggy, but travelers still traverse the same driveway in search of a warm welcome. Now the home of Parings Wine Bar, the turn-of-the-century house reflects the goal that owner Shelia Paolini shared with the Amherst Bee’s Jessica Finch: “We want it to feel like you are coming into a living room, that you are at home, not at a bar.”

As soon as guests push open the bright-red front door, they enter a space that combines the comfort of a lived-in family room with the gourmet flavors found at traditional wine bars. Lit by flat-screen TVs and a cozy fireplace, guests peruse Chef Scott Martin’s ever-changing menu, which often features mediterranean nachos, lobster mac 'n' cheese, and horseradish beef tenderloin. Resident sommelier Alphonso DiMono’s wine list, which culls vintages from global wineries from Australia to France to California, perfectly complements the chef's creations. The bar’s mixologists also shake up more than 20 martinis infused with treats such has espresso vodka, Godiva white-chocolate liqueur, and pumpkin puree. As they sip and eat, guests can also join in special event nights that include art shows, live music, and happy hours that feature 20 types of wine for just $20 per bottle.
