We tried Soleil Wine Bar and Grill last night, having never been there before and not asking anyone here if we should. Yes, I know that's a pretty radical concept but I like to live dangerously.

This is a great place! The menu consists of tapas, pizza and entree portion plates. There is a very nice wine list both by the bottle and glass. Well, it does bill itself as a wine bar, after all, so this is not that surprsing.

We had the olive bowl, parmesan frites, bacon wrapped dates, apple & prosciutto salad and paella. All were excellent but the paella was a real stand-out. And, a perfect size plate for sharing with other tapas or could be consumed as an entree by an individual. Nice to know since most paellas are made for two people and priced and portioned accordingly.

A reasonably priced bottle of Portuguese wine accompanined followed by an extra glass of another Portuguese. Dessert was Bourbon chocolate bread pudding with caramel sauce and a couple of espressos. Our server was friendly without being cloying and very wine savvy without being annoying.

Check without tip came to $157. I'll be going back.
