The grape slowly rose to prominence as the world's premier wine-fruit after Neolithic wine makers endured one too many pineapple spikes in the foot. Raise a glass to worthy, grapey innovation with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of bistro fare and drinks at The Parlour Wine Bar & Bistro in Glendora.
The Parlour stocks its chic, exposed-brick bistro space with a Bacchanalian bounty of elegant, hand-selected wines. Its impressive by-the-bottle list boasts more than 200 wines from around the globe, categorized by type and country of origin. If this leviathan list seems too daunting, wizened staff members are on hand to make masterful suggestions. The shorter by-the-glass list streamlines the assortment down to approximately 30 wines, ports, and imported beers (starting at $6) to team up with The Parlour's seasonal menu, like Tom and Jerry when they fight that pesky bulldog, Spike.
Featuring organic, locally grown produce and gourmet ingredients, eaters can frolic to flavorville for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Lunch offers a selection of upscale panini, salads, and pasta, while dinner features soup, salads, and small plates. Slay noontime hunger-demons with a squash-blossom panini ($12), served with a salad or skillet fries, and soothe an unwieldy sweet tooth with warm chocolate croissants and Häagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream ($7). Under the heat of the moon, gather beneath modishly exposed ductwork to share an evening of St. Clement Merlot ($10 per glass) and tapas-style plates, such as artichoke fondue ($11), or grilled Italian sausage on a sweet-corn cake ($10). With its sophisticated, European ambiance, all-day cheese flights ($14), and extensive wine selection, The Parlour is an ideal place for oenophiles to sip and socialize inside a bold, crisp atmosphere with complex oak undertones.
