Without cheese, sandwich meat would get lonely and rappers would use the term “fungible retainer of value” as an epithet for the word “money.” Put your money where your mouth is with today’s Groupon to Rèst-âü-Ránt in Long Island City. Choose between the following options:
- For $18, you get a beer-and-cheese flight for two (up to a $36 value).
- For $20, you get a wine-and-cheese flight for two (up to a $42 value).<p>
Rèst-âü-Ránt crafts blissful bouquets of handheld nibbles to complement a cache of beer and fine wines. Oenophiles can turn over a new hop leaf with one of two beer-and-cheese flights. The Nutty Goodness builds taste bridges between Brooklyn brews and Swiss emmental, and the Acquired Tastes grabs the tongue’s attention with the bold flavors of Guinness, Delerium Tremens, and sheep’s-milk feta. Or, delve into one of eight wine-and-cheese duos, such as the Sauvignon Blanc, a coterie of cow-cheese and light-colored libations, or the Dessert Wine pairing, matching sweeter varietals with appetite-ruining pearls of gorgonzola and fresh goat cheese. Rèst-âü-Ránt also hosts live entertainment beneath its high, wood-beamed ceiling on Tuesday and Thursday to both aid digestion and drown out the sounds of Spanish manchego and French brie quarrelling over club-soccer scores.
