Sampling wine or beer in the form of a flight caters to both indecisive drinkers and glass-harp players choosing to simultaneously perform to pay for their drinks. Leave no stone unturned with today's Groupon to Rèst-âü-Ránt in Long Island City. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get a wine and cheese flight for two (up to a $42 value).
- For $18, you get a beer and cheese flight for two (up to a $36 value).
Rèst-âü-Ránt carries global cachet with an internationally sourced contingent of wines and specialty beers, escorted to domestic diners by a menu of intuitively paired small plates. Select from eight eager teams for the wine flights, bearing such monikers as the Sparklers—prosecco and muscato from Italy, partnered with French brie, American ricotta, and a mouth-side fireworks display. The Italian Viaggio flight forms dynamic duos betwixt a seductive sangiovese from Umani Ronchi, a Bramosia chianti classico, smooth mozzarella, and sotto voce gorgonzola. Those choosing to have a sit-down with one of two beer-flight options can swap travelogues with the domestic and European brews and imported cheeses that make up each pair, such as the Nutty Goodness flight's gruff Sierra Nevada and brawny Brooklyn Lager two-stepping with Swiss gruyère and emmental.
Open until 2 a.m. Sunday–Thursday and 4 a.m. Friday and Saturday, Rèst-âü-Ránt entertains evening wine-sippers and beer-imbibers with live entertainment two nights a week, with comedy on Tuesday nights and music on Thursdays. On other days, visitors can sink into a seat on the outdoor patio and listen to the soothing voice of a potted plant.
