What You'll Get
The perfect food and wine pairing is like the fateful meeting of destined lovers, best celebrated with a tiny mock-wedding presided over by a curmudgeonly pepper mill with a heart of gold. Combine cuisine and wine the way nature intended with today's deal: for $10, you get $25 of classy wines and gourmet cuisine at The Grape Wine Bar & Bistro, newly renovated and now under local ownership. Celebrate the miracle of fermentation during lunch or dinner at any of The Grape's three locations: Atlantic Station, Phipps Plaza, and Vinings Jubilee. The Atlantic Station and Phipps Plaza locations are open seven days a week, while the Vinings Jubilee location is closed on Sundays.
Inseparable even in past lives when they were a crime-solving orangutan-golden retriever duo, the Grape's Master Sommelier Jay James and Executive Chef Paul Agnelli aim to match a perfectly-chosen wine with each item on their fresh, seasonal menu. Every dish is made with wine-friendly gourmet ingredients. Settle into The Grape's outdoor patio and start by coupling sharable tasters like the chipotle-shrimp flatbread with cilantro-lime dressing ($10) with a robust red like the Layer Cake's Italian Primitivo ($10/glass), or artfully offset a mezze platter of roasted-garlic hummus, house-marinated olives, and cashew- and goat-cheese-stuffed peppadews ($9) with the crispier Sauvignon Blanc from Joel Gott's Napa vineyard ($7/glass). Likewise, dozens of chardonnays, pinot noirs, aromatic whites, champagnes, Italian wines, and more can make a leggy tango partner to entrées such as the grilled-mahi tacos with jalapeno slaw ($12), the pulled pork with pepper-jack cheese on fire-roasted corn flatbread with kettle chips ($9), or the double-cut New–Zealand lamb chops with portobello cream-cheese mashed potatoes and raspberry-balsamic honey ($24). If you're not fluent in wine jargon or simply overwhelmed by the options, The Grape's winesperienced staff is always eager to offer recommendations and advice regarding your meal or tax problems. Cap off an evening of tattoo comparisons and flirtatious arm-wrestling with a glass of fruity-sweet Muscat Blanc from Italy's Piedmont region ($13).
Every month, the Grape also showcases new and unusual wines with a Wine–Discovery special. These hand-picked vinos can be served by the glass in three varietal flights, or by the entire bottle paired specifically with a specially-crafted entrée. The Grape tops off its atmosphere of relaxed-cool by suffusing it with live music every weekend eventide at each location. The Grape also has large, private dining rooms set aside for hush-hush functions such as gangster proms and ghost weddings.
