The Curious Grape Wine, Dine & Shop Restaurant Review: Wine store and wine-and-dine destination The Curious Grape offers a menu that follows the season, which may produce such dishes as roasted heirloom beets with beet greens and toasted almonds and main courses like pan-roasted tuna or lemon grass shrimp with roasted peanuts, a dish that strongly hints at Southeast Asian roots. Lunch options bring forth lighter fare, and whenever you stop by, be sure to visit the pastry case, where brownies as rich and smooth as a stick of butter underscore a chocoholics best dreams. Aside from the restaurant the shop offers a fine wine selection, wine pairing dinners, wine tastings, and special on-site affairs. And while the restaurant section is open only six days a week, the café and retail portions are open daily, from early in the morning onwards.
