Sip Wine & Dine Restaurant Review: Sip Wine & Dine is a retail wine shop, a wine bar and a restaurant. Creative small plates draw from a variety of cuisines, paired with an eclectic wine selection. These little dishes don't follow Spanish tapas in the traditional sense, but instead are large enough to share or to compose a light entrée. Kobe-style beef sliders with red onion marmalade are most wine friendly, and if you avoid the jalapeño and other hot peppers lurking here and there, the other dishes can be as well. We like the rock shrimp tacos with the jícama slaw, but avoid the accompanying apricot chili sauce if you want the dish to go with a wine. Several selections are marked gluten-free. Flourless chocolate torte is offered for dessert. The retail wine shop allows patrons to purchase bottles that were tasted in the restaurant. For a $14 corkage fee plus the retail cost of the wine, you can open the bottle in the restaurant. Sip offers 50 well-selected wines by the sip, the one-ounce taste, the three-ounce pour and the full six-ounce pour. Of these, 24 are available in the self-serve Enomatic. Servers' wine knowledge needs expansion.
