Vintage Wine Bar is now hosting multi-course dinners featuring tastes from around the globe.
The featured menu July 9-Aug. 8 is a seven-course tasting menu with modern Mexican flavors for $45 per person. A $25 drink ticket buys four drinks, a mixture of wines and cocktails that pair with the meal. Reservations for the 6 p.m. or 8:30 p.m. time slots can be made at winebartulsa.com.
“The way I’m looking at it is like you’re a guest in our home,” owner Matt Sanders says. “We get to hyperfocus on these really beautifully themed dinners. The first one was Israeli. There were eight dishes that came out kind of family style. It all sits in front of you.”
The themes of the meals, which change about every 30 days, inform the dishes rather than limit them, Sanders says.
“It’s never meant to be fussy,” he says. “And it’s working ... we also have all these protocols in place, so if you’re apprehensive about going out we want to be the place that you rely on for that.”
With pandemic precautions in place, Vintage Wine Bar staff encourages reservations for guests wanting just drinks and sharables; walk-ins will be seated as space allows. Hours are 4 p.m.-midnight, Tuesday-Thursday; and 4 p.m.-2 a.m., Friday-Saturday, at 324 E. First St.
