We went to The Wine Bar in Atlantic Highlands last Saturday. I cannot believe there isn't more buzz about this place. So I thought I would introduce you guys to it.
We were taking a day trip up to Sandy Hook to visit some friends and this place is all they talked about so we decided to join them there.
The ambiance when you walk in is very warm and modern. It really gives you a feeling of sophistication, but not in a snobby way....it's very welcoming.
Rocket Arugula Salad which has roquefort cheese, apples, candied pecans and cider vinaigrette. This is probably my favorite salad in a long time.
Roasted center cut filet mignon over roasted tuscan potatoes with bordelaise sauce and merlot butter. The flavors were fantastic and the filet was cooked well....which is always one of my pet peeves.
We even ordered a tasting of Cabernets which was I was very impressed with.
The service was very friendly and were on top of their game when we were there...and the manager held a very friendly presence...I will also add that she looks very familiar to me and she seemed to recognize me but I didn't want to ask from where to avoid looking like an idiot but I suspect it could be from another restaurant I frequented.
I would really like to hear if anyone else has been and what you ordered and of course what your impressions were.
After a google search when we got home I came up with the website and turns out they are on Open Table too...not much else though.
Check it out and let me know :->
