VINIFERA WINE BAR & BISTRO INTRODUCES NEW PINTXO MENU; Unwind From the Workday with $1 Delights

Vinifera Wine Bar & Bistro now offers a pintxo menu – a collection of tasty one-bite-wonders designed with the concept of variety at an affordable cost in mind.  Priced at only $1 each, these amazing “tastes” can be ordered as a starter to a full meal, or a bunch to share with friends while enjoying Vinifera’s vast selection of 300+ wines, available by half pour, full glass or flights of three. 

 

Pintxo, a traditional cuisine in the Basque region of Spain, is a take on the Spanish word pincho, or “to pierce.”  Executive Chef Bo Palker has created his own variation of this fare using the fresh herbs and vegetables grown in his garden on-site at the restaurant.  The Mediterranean-influenced items, served on skewers, include:

 

Boquerones (Anchovies), Tomato, Parsley and Garlic
