Grape Wine Bistro Reopens as Transformed Concept
Formerly Grape Wine Bistro, Grape has reopened in a brand new location in north Scottsdale, Arizona. The new Grape is conveniently located just north of the Loop 101 at 23335 N. Scottsdale Road, Suite D-105 in the Sprouts plaza on the southeast corner of Scottsdale Road and Pinnacle Peak.
Grape redeﬁnes the contemporary bistro by offering guests an upscale-yet-casual, unpretentious wine-centric dining experience. There’s no better spot in north Scottsdale to relax and unwind with friends and family while enjoying great wines and delicious contemporary dishes featuring fresh items from the sea, farm, and garden.
Grape’s Certified Wine Specialist has curated one of the Valley’s best wine selections, designed to pair perfectly with the menu. The range is broad, from quality table wines like Justin Cabernet, Rombauer Zinfandel, and ZD Chardonnay, which enhance the Linguini Bolognese or Seared Scallops, to the finest from California, including Opus One and Kongsgaard Chardonnay which pair with New York Steak Au Poivre or Roasted Salmon, and many of the best Italian wines, such as Michele Chiarlo and Tenuta Setti Ponti “Oreno” that offer the ideal accompaniment to the Sausage Penne.
Grape’s wine list is one of the largest in the Valley, with 38 wines by the glass, and more than 200 bottles rated 90 points or higher, offering something for casual sippers and erudite oenophiles alike.
Small plates and entrée-size salads include Crab Cakes ($16), Bruschetta ($8), and Strawberry Spinach Salad ($11). For lunch choose from a variety of sandwiches and burgers such as Caprese Prosciutto ($12), a Truffle Burger ($16), or pastas like Lobster Ravioli ($18), Vegetable Gnocchi ($14), or entrées such as Fish and Frites ($17), and BBQ ribs ($19).
Dinner selections range from Short Ribs ($26) to Pacific Dover Sole ($22) to Braised Lamb Shank ($28). Top it all off with decadent desserts like house made Coconut Cake ($10) or Cappuccino Pie ($8). Guests won’t want to miss weekend brunch with updated favorites like Eggs in Purgatory ($9), or Coconut Pancakes ($10).
Many of Grape’s dishes are gluten free or can be prepared gluten free upon request. Ingredients are organic and locally sourced whenever possible. And, while adults will enjoy a menu crafted to pair perfectly with wine, a thoughtful children’s menu with a variety of kid-friendly selections ensures there are plenty of tasty options for young guests, too.
Grape offers a comfortably chic dining room with intimate booths and cozy tables in a loft-like setting featuring polished concrete floors, exposed white washed brick, vintage tin tile accents, high ceilings and oversized mirrors reflecting abundant natural light. An expansive bar serves eight local beers on tap and 16 bottles of domestics and imports, which can be enjoyed while catching the game on two flat screen televisions.
Outside, a spacious, dog-friendly patio offers casual al fresco dining on beautiful Arizona days or cool evenings, and provides the perfect front-row seat to vibrant Scottsdale sunsets. Inside or out, guests will find the atmosphere of Grape to be as relaxed as their own home. It all adds up to the perfect setting for intimate evenings with that special-someone, laid back lunches with friends, unbuttoned Sunday brunches, or worry free family dinners.
To celebrate the grand opening of their new location Grape is offering attractive specials now through April 30. Guests can enjoy 20 percent off their lunch or dinner check, and signing up for Grape’s eClub will qualify members for exclusive ongoing specials and promotions.
