THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Trumpet Vine Wine & Tapas Bar Restaurant Review

: A Spanish Mediterranean theme hangs here---along with a huge trumpet vine flower. Jill Sandlin and her crew want you to sample local wines and Spanish-inspired small plates. With only 10 tables and a bar---works great for tasting---they want to keep it simple. In the process, they can control quality and pamper you. The tapas selection always includes some fresh seafood creations---perhaps seared scallops or grilled oysters. These offerings change from time to time, though you can always count on classics such as anchovies with olives. Continue on your culinary journey with a sampling of Spanish cheeses or a plate of the famous Serrano ham. If you can't make up your mind, order the Tradicionales and the chef will choose five tapas for you. Wine, saké and sherry tasting flights are poured nightly. One important detail for you wine geeks: they use argon gas to seal the unfinished bottles at night, assuring perfect preservation of aromas and tastes.
