Vinoteque on Melrose Coupons and Deals
Evening with the Sommelier for one at 8 PM; includes tapas and wine tastings
Los Angeles's defining features -- its international flair and distinctly local culture -- are seemingly in conflict, but create a harmony that's worth celebrating. Do your part to blend the far and near -- and get your taste buds in the mix while you're at it -- with this vintage LA offer: Pay $95 for a five-course prix-fixe meal with wine pairings at Vinotéque on Melrose. Vinotéque, located near the corner of Melrose and Gardner Streets, is heralded as one of LA's best new wine bars. With a European ambiance fused with the charm of its LA neighborhood, the restaurant's interior reflects the city's extreme influences. But it's not just the charm that's local: Vinotéque's menu stresses seasonal, organic, and locally grown foods prepared by Executive Chef Sheila Gomez, formerly of Beso and Citrus at Social Hollywood. Once seated, you'll enjoy a five-course prix-fixe menu with wine pairings featuring items conceived specifically around whatever sustainable, responsibly harvested meat, fish, and vegetables are available at the market that week (imagine a warm goat cheese Napoleon with honey and apple-pickled onion slaw; rock shrimp risotto with yellow corn and bacon; or black angus sliders with harissa mayo and blue cheese). Fittingly, each course will be specially paired with a selection from Vinotéque's expansive wine list, which includes more than 350 bottles from all over the world. If you're looking for an experience that lives up to our city's reputation for flavorful pairings, this offer is sure to stir things up.
