Home Wine Kitchen has been on my radar ever since it's opened last year. In June, we tried to get a reservation when my grandparents were in town visiting, but found it impossible to do so. I then vowed to return, and soon! It took me a good eight months or so, and Ryan's actually the one who surprised me with the reservation, but return we did!
First things first: the wine. As much as I enjoy drinking wine, I am by no means an expert and can't speak to the actual quality of the wine offered. What I can tell you is that all bottles are $30 apiece and that each day they have a selection of (white and red) wines for $8/glass. Not a bad deal! Ryan and I each selected a glass (Pinot Noir for me, Sangiovese for him) and were both satisfied with our selections.
gorgonzola smashed potatoes!) but I think I could eat these every day!
After stuffing our faces, we were too full for dessert, although I was tempted by the fig bread pudding. All in all this is a solid restaurant--the service was wonderful, our food was prepared well, and I loved the atmosphere. Next time I'd probably return for lunch or their weekend brunch...the prices didn't quite match our impressions of the food (we paid a little over $100 after tax & tip for the 2 glasses of wine, starter, two entrees, and side dish).
Come back in April to see which dish I try to recreate for the "repeat" portion of my self-imposed challenge!
