Celebrity power couple Wine and Cheese—or Wheese—is the name on everybody’s lips, much to the chagrin of D-list couples such as potato and salad, or fun and onions. Toast the country’s tastiest duo with today’s Groupon to Vintage Wine Bar and Kitchen in Hebron. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of contemporary American fare and wine during lunch.
- For $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary American fare and wine during dinner.
Whether you're a vino virgin or wine aficionado, one of Vintage's 100 wines is sure to tickle the tongue and glamorize the gullet. Sixty-five grapen gulpables are available by the glass, including the Sicilian Arnacio nero d'avola ($5) and the South African Jam Jar 2009 sweet shiraz ($6). Similar to most pilot-school graduations, guests can swallow three wines at once during the chardonnay flight, which includes wines from Sonoma, South Africa, and the central coast of California ($12). To complement grape blood, sippers draw from a menu of starters such as pan-seared crab cakes with corn butter and hot-sauce powder, and small plates sporting savories such as the grilled-chicken-breast sandwich ($9). Entrees entice taste buds with servings of succulent skirt steak ($17) and penne pasta ($15), or fill digestive hard drives with homemade dough disks including the medley of mozzarella, parmesan, red sauce, and oregano ($10 for a 10").
Alternately, noontime noshers or frazzled ergonomists can furnish their table space with smaller portions of signature cuisine such as the fried-walleye sandwich ($8) and the Vintage BLT on house-made challah bread ($6). Or dig into a Vintage wedge salad, featuring the eatery's ranch or blue-cheese dressing ($8 for a full serving). Live music every week keeps customers hopping to tunes sans stereo-equipped pogo sticks—see the website for a schedule of upcoming events.
