Grateful Palate Reopens as Wine Bar & Lounge Tonight
The space has been completely overhauled to include two main areas: a swank wine lounge that fits 40 guests and a dining room that seats 50. The bar will feature over 300 wines from around the world, including plenty of selections geared towards "wine aficionados." To dole out the good stuff, the space will have a temperature controlled cruvinet dispensary system that will allow guests to enjoy tastes or full glasses.
As for dinner, Chef David Learmonth will prepare dishes that lean towards to finer side of eclectic American dining. He'll pan sear halibut and set it atop curried Moroccan couscous, pair succulent duck breast with oyster mushrooms and port demi-glace, and crisp up salmon skin to serve with ginger-infused black beans.
To compliment the kitchen and bar, Grateful Palate plans on booking live music and holding classes and seminars on wine and cheese. Happy hour will run Monday through Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. as well.
