Grape juice magically transforms into wine in the same way milk becomes cheese and a 1972 Dodge Dart becomes an even older 1972 Dodge Dart. Tipple the tasty transformation with today's Groupon to Wine Experience Café & World Cellar in Aurora. Choose from two options:

  • For $20, you get a luxury wine flight (a $42 value).
  • For $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary fare and drinks.

Chef Jason Lee and owner Eldon Larson combine their culinary expertise and oenophilic adroitness to create a menu of contemporary dishes that pair with the collection of more than 150 wines. A mixed olive tapenade and mushroom goat cheese appetizer provides a savory counterpoint to grape-based statements in the opening stages of dinner debates ($11). Entree options harness delicate flavors extracted from high-quality ingredients, such as scallops served with white beans in a truffled madeira sauce ($25) or a gluten-free hanger steak with a blue cheese and chive polenta ($18). Luxury wine flights are composed of three pours of special vintages, such as the Silver Oak cabernet or Molly Dooker "Blue-Eyed Boy" shiraz. Diners and drinkers can relish their edible expeditions in a spacious dining room filled with tables blanketed by white linens, a wood-burning fireplace, babies dressed in clown costumes, and a cherry-wood wine bar.

  • … executive chef Matthew Franklin somehow managed to home in on my yearnings, offering a litany of dishes that had been benchmarked in my mind for days. – Lori Midson, Rocky Mountain News
  • Part buzzy restaurant, part wine bar and part boutique wine and spirits shop, the Wine Experience Café & World Cellar is a gastronomic wonderland in the culinarily deprived suburb of Aurora, an area otherwise occupied by chain restaurants. – Gayot
