Last night I went out to dinner at Sip Wine in Vinings. I have been wanting to go here since they opened 2 years ago. I finally had the perfect excuse, girl's night!
Sip has a cool concept: there are wine "vending machines" where you can serve yourself a sip, half glass, or full glass. The idea is to sample many different wines. A sip averages $2, 1/2 glass about $4 and a full is $8.
(Thanks for modeling Lauren!)
The idea is great, but the wine I wanted to try was empty and even though it was a Wednesday special on their menu, Sip would not honor the $5 special price instead I would have to pay $8.75 to get it out of the machine. Kind of lame if you ask me! I'll probably go back to give the wine machines a 2nd chance. I also think this could be a fun date night, hint hint!!
I finally got a glass of wine from our server, I had the Zenato Pinot Grigio - it was very light & refreshing. Sip offers a tapas style menu, most plates average $10. To start I had the Apple Salad with pecans & blue cheese - yum!!
Others had the Soba Noodle Peanut Salad, Chicken Skewers, Tuna Tartare, Crawfish Beignets, and Scallops.
The food was great and the vibe was really cool!
The service was average - there were times I was waiting to order another glass of wine, more tapas and get more water. But I don't think I'll let that prevent me from going back.
I love the candles they had on the tables! I totally want to try to make this, Pinterest can you help me out?!?!
