Hello Foodie Friends,
I am delighted to share with you my dining experience at Vino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas, located in Mizner Plaza in Downtown Boca (in the little strip plaza on the south end of Mizner Park). Although Vino's is not a newly opened establishment, it was the first time I have actually sat and enjoyed a meal there. Their bar is very inviting and the locals can be found hanging out there enjoying a great selection of wines, nibbling on terrific tapas, engaging in conversation whilst listening to live music being performed. Vino's has live music nightly. Last night we heard the sultry sounds of Ms. Chris Janes.
|Grilled Calamari with Arugula Salad|
|Paired with this lovely Chenin Blanc|
The grilled calamari with arugula salad was off the chart fantastic and it paired really nicely with the Chenin Blanc!
|Jumbo Prawns wrapped in Prosciutto and served with sauteed spinach on top a Ciabatta crostini|
|Paired with this lovely Pinot Grigio|
|Paired perfectly with this Montepulciano D'Abruzzo|
|Meatball with Ricotta|
Ah, the Eggplant Parmigiana and the Meatball...these were two outstanding dishes that both myself and my companion enjoyed very much. They also paired very well with the Chianti we were served.

|Flourless Chocolate Torte|
|Paired perfectly with this Malbec|
The Flourless Chocolate Torte was out of this world! I have to say it was THE BEST one I have ever had, no lie! It paired very well with the Malbec with its underlying notes of cherry. Yumm!!
Well folks, there you have it. I will definitely be back to Vino's and highly recommend you check it out as well if you have never been or even if it's been a while since your last visit. It's a great local's wine bar where you are bound to run into someone you know (as I did). The staff make you feel welcome and the food and service were excellent. Heather was our wonderful server on this night. On other nights, you just might find her tending bar.

Until we eat again...
I send you delicious wishes, xo
