For those who like a little food with their wine…
Thankfully, Vinoteca excels at both food and wine, and the restaurant is offering a fun optional upgrade to the traditional Restaurant Week deal by adding wine pairings to each course for only $15 extra. An amuse bouche and a choice from six appetizers and five entrees allow for more choices than usual.
Chef Lonnie Zoeller’s top picks: Red cabbage and beet salad appetizer; an entree of bison with salt-roasted rutabaga, mushroom gravy and horseradish cream; a playful take on pumpkin pie.
