What You'll Get
Grapes are wine's grandparents, jelly's coworkers, raisins' unmummified ancestors, and eyeballs’ expert imposters. Pursue the shifty fruit with today's Groupon: for $12, you'll get $30 worth of wine and bistro fare at The Grape. Count on the enchanting International Plaza eatery for a well-culled wine menu, social plates, and quaint, stylish atmosphere.
Nurse a cool glass of chardonnay or check a bottle of cabernet's vital signs. Wines are available by the half glass, glass, or bottle and start at $4 for a half glass and $7 for a glass. Oenophiles appreciate offerings from a variety of vintages, appellations, and countries. Expand palates with the Whitehaven sauvignon blanc from New Zealand ($9 per glass) or Chile's MontGras Reserva Carménère ($36 per bottle). To up the social ante, snack on selections from the bistro menu such as a plate of artisanal cheeses or charcuterie ($13 for three selections, $17 for five). Other savory selections include creamy brie baked inside a delicate flaky crust ($15), New Zealand lamb chops ($15 for three), and Atlantic smoked-salmon flatbread ($11).
The Grape's stylish atmosphere fosters good-natured conversation and caresses cares away like a hammock hung between wealth-granting oil derricks. Post up at the outdoor patio or arrange for a private dinner in the wine cellar. A showy crowd promises prime people watching, especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
