We’d be hard-pressed to detail Naked Grape’s delicious menu because it may change by the time you go in for a visit.
But that’s the best part.
The restaurant’s food and drink menus change every few months, usually with the seasons. At any given time, the bar has 80 different wines, offering nearly 35 of them by glass. The bar specializes in boutique and limited production offerings. The wine list changes almost weekly.
They are the self-proclaimed “wine without attitude” bar. Behind the counter, Tim will let you sample whatever wine you’d like until you’re satisfied. Your experience shouldn’t be limited to the way a bottle looks or how a description sounds. Taste until you find something you’ll enjoy. When you do, don’t hesitate to buy a bottle. Naked Grape has a retail license where you can purchase your favorite new wine to go.
For summer, we tasted the 2011 Anno Domini Moscato. While red wine drinkers tend to stay the course—even during the hot and humid South Florida months—we were happy to sip the cool, sweet Moscato as the sun went down. With half-price bottles on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, it’s hard to pass up this delicious Italian drink.
While wine may be in the restaurant’s name, don’t ignore the tapas. Indulge in cheese decadence with the Swiss fondue: paired with bread cubes and your choice of salami or green apples. Look out for the extensive offerings of charcuterie and cheese – served with baguettes, condiments and garnishes including chutney, fruits, olives and more.
Try the shrimp flatbread: a large piece of toasted flatbread topped with homemade pesto, roasted red peppers and shrimp. This pairs great with the Moscato or another light, sweet wine.
Close out your evening with one of the four specialty dessert options, including a personal pan Toll House cookie, baked in a mini cast-iron skillet and served with a tiny scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Everything is made fresh to order while also offering naturally and organically grown food. The restaurant buys local whenever possible, supporting their “farm to fork” initiative. Food is served until one hour before closing, which means on the weekends, you can eat until midnight!
While the restaurant is open Tuesday-Saturday evenings, private parties and events on Sundays and Mondays are available upon request. With their extensive wine list, delicious small plates and knowledgeable staff, you’re never too far away from the Naked Grape Wine Bar.
