Like Lou Costello to Bud Abbott, Italian food plays the perfect foil to wine's crisp, acidic wit, but unlike Abbott and Costello, only one of them still holds up after 70 years. Taste the original double act with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a wine-tasting package for two at Pizza & Wine Bar at Sliders in West Hollywood (a $70 value).
Featuring samples from both halves of the restaurant's namesake, the wine tasting at Pizza & Wine Bar samples both its fresh Italian cuisine and carefully curated selection of imported and domestic wines. At the heart of the tasting, a flight of 4-ounce glasses of any four wines, including Saurus cabernet sauvignon from Argentina or Miglianico montepulciano d'Abruzzo from Italy, takes patrons on a gustatory global tour. A Taste of the World appetizer pairs the international wines with a platter of bite-sized ambassadors, as hard and soft cheeses and thinly sliced meats mingle with caper berries, comichon, olives, almonds, and bread. Pizza & Wine Bar's small pizzas round out the package, topping a crispy thin crust with homemade tomato sauce and anything from fresh basil and mozzarella cheese to marinated chicken breast and fresh mushrooms.
Pizza & Wine Bar
At Pizza & Wine Bar, more than 15 pizzas treat palates to topping combos that evoke styles from several American regions. Traditional ingredients such as mozzarella cheese and mushrooms share space on pies with Kobe beef, sausage, homemade tomato sauce, and crushed-red-pepper marinara sauce. There's also pastas with freshly made garlic bread, Kobe or chicken sliders with homemade potato chips, and burgers with natural-cut fries. Wine imported from countries such as Spain, Italy, and Australia, as well as imported beer, complements these dishes, with daily happy hour specials. The facility further accommodates guests with daily wine tastings, private parties for up to 50 guests, and delivery to underground pizza bunkers. Flat-screen TVs also create a sports bar atmosphere, with live games shown daily.
