Special thanks to Vino Venue! We got to visit this wonderful establishment last month for a wine event with Bodega Renacer. How sweet were they to invite us back out for a Private Menu and Wine Tasting. Since it coincided with our anniversary week celebration they made the evening extra special for my husband and I.
Vino Venue Menu Tasting
Vino Venue is a really cool Dunwoody establishment that is a restaurant, cooking school and wine shop. They offer shared plates, tastings, wine by the glass and all in a terrific space surrounded by wine!

Shrimp & Grits – Andouille sausage, cream, roasted garlic
Dark Chocolate Pot De Creme w/ Chantilly cream
Red Velvet Brownie w/ Cream cheese ice cream
Jacques Pelvas Brut Rosé
I had a great time meeting and speaking to Executive Chef Patric about the menu. He is the mastermind behind every dish. He pays close attention to the sights and sounds of the city and bases a lot of his recipes on that. So you will find southern cuisine fused with fresh salads, flatbreads and light bites. The menu is seasonal and does change.
We loved every dish. But our favorites were the Kale Caesar Salad, Shrimp & Grits which Chef Patric PUT HIS FOOT in and the Basil Chicken Flatbread.
Here is a video of our tasting. Please note that for some reason the sound is slightly off but just pretend its a karate movie and watch it anyway!
Thanks again to the owner Michael Bryan and the entire staff of Vino Venue for showing my husband and I so much love for our anniversary. If you are ever out in the Dunwoody area stop by, tell them that The SistahChick sent you <3
