What You'll Get
Without taste buds, gourmands would never taste food's subtle flavor notes and meteorologists wouldn't be able to predict the weather by standing atop skyscrapers and licking clouds. Reward your taste buds with today's Groupon: for $34, you get a tasting session for up to four people including up to four tasting plates at Studio 91 in Chapel Hill (a $76 value). Each diner also receives up to four tastings of South American wine, which are complimentary and not included in the value of the Groupon.
Studio 91 proprietor Annette Girman handpicks each work of art that adorns the walls of Studio 91, as well as the boutique assortment of fine small plates and artisanal wines that grace guests' gullets. Visitors dip crusty slices of bread or crunchy action figures into savory hummus and nosh on gourmet meats and cheeses, briny kalamata olives, and sun-dried tomatoes artfully arranged into small plates. Eyeballs drink up the work of artists such as France's Gerard Puvis, who molds the metallic foil found on the necks of grand-cru wine bottles into miniature humans, or Canadian painter Rod Chase, whose photorealistic creations often deflect criminals attempting to flee into another reality. As a complimentary gift, each visitor can sample a quartet of 3-ounce pours of South American wine, tasting red, white, and rose varieties of the adult grape juice.
Shining wood floors and a pressed-tin ceiling reflect Studio 91's gleaming lights, modern furniture, and baby grand piano, creating a bright and sophisticated atmosphere. On Wednesdays after 7:30 p.m., women receive complimentary chocolate truffles, encouraging mid-dinner costume changes in the hope of procuring extras.
