Adding gourmet ingredients to a meal makes a commonplace activity feel special, much like brushing your teeth with a sparkler or withdrawing money from an ATM while holding it at gunpoint. Enjoy an enhanced dining experience with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fine Mediterranean- and Southern-style cuisine and wine at Wild Vine Hideaway, a restaurant and wine bar in Danville.
Wild Vine Hideaway brandishes an eclectic, hunger-slaying menu of sophisticated flavors within a quaint, neighborhood atmosphere. Dip into a tasty pool of homemade hummus served with dippable cucumbers, grape tomatoes, feta cheese, and kalamalta olives ($9.95), or take off the floaties and dive straight into the deep end with a smorgasbord of hearty entrees. Anchor incisors into the sea’s freshest offerings with a catch of grilled ahi served alongside wasabi mashed potatoes and charred pineapple ($17.95).
Those with landlubbing legs or recurring nightmares of turning into a blobfish will enjoy grounded dishes such as the plump hideaway avocado burger ($9.95), the succulent 12-ounce New York steak ($21.95), or the chicken coq au vin, buddied up with apple-wood bacon and a red-wine sauce ($17.95). While indulging tongues and discovering new flavors such as umami and carrot, tipple a glass from Wild Vine’s far-reaching beverage list, featuring worldly beers ($5) and varietals (start at $4) by the half-glass, full glass, and bottle.
Outdoor dining and an amiable staff help establish Wild Vine Hideaway as a great place to relax with friends or wrestle already cooked creatures into submission. Swing in Tuesdays to excite laughter glands with comedy sets, or Wednesday through Saturday evenings to tickle ears with live music or wet Willy’s evil cousin, the dry David.
- There’s plenty of ordinary fare on offer, but Wild Vine’s ricotta-stuffed bacon-wrapped prawns, Nona’s pulled-pork sandwiches, and Tami’s soulful, two-day simmered pasta sauce capture this gem’s gutsy Italian flavor. – Diablo
- This is a really fun restaurant, with great atmosphere, live music, wine tasting and excellent food. – An OpenTable reviewer who dined on 2/4/11
