Menus that take an unexpected turn

Unusual Wine Bar Offerings If you’ve been to a few wine bars, you’ve probably come to expect certain regulars on the food menu: assorted salumi and marinated olives; the requisite cheese plate; a selection of flat breads or crostini; maybe a pâté or two. 

While these are usually solid, reliably complementary choices to the wines on hand, it’s nice to mix things up once in a while and explore the more unexpected – yet equally delicious – eats that accompany your wine. We’ve come up with a list of of some creative wine bars across the country taking their food menus off-road. Check out some of the offerings and be sure to share your local favorites with us below!

    Hana, you need to check out The Wine Tap in downtown Belleville, Illinois. It's a cozy little place with a great wine list and and the perfect menu to accompany the beverage of your choice. And it's only about 30 minutes from downtown St. Louis.

  • We eat at Max's Wine Dive in Houston as often as we can. The Fried Egg Sandwich and the Kobe Beef Burgers are excellent. Taya always finds us a great new wine to try with our meals. The casual nature of the restaurant paired with good wine is a home run.

    @Worldnav - Thanks for the suggestion, the Wine Tap looks right up my alley!

    @pastamom2011 - I'm dying to check out Max's Wine Dive - looks like they really take bar food up to a whole 'nother level! Please have your share for me until I make it to Houston. :)
