During the Carr Fire in August 2018, I was lucky to get a ticket for the last orchestra seat to see Pat Benatar perform at the historic Cascade Theater. Before the show, I grabbed a bite across the street at the Vintage wine bar.
A glass of Trimbach Pinot Blanc, $9.50 (50¢ higher than stated on menu) and Zucchini tempura burger, $10 ($1 less than menu and included a side salad plus fries neither mentioned anywhere) were plenty for a light dinner. Best part was champagne vinaigrette and toasted quinoa topping on the salad. The burger had no tempura batter nor zucchini. I checked the menu on the way out and there's nothing else on the menu that fits what I was served. It wasn't terrible, just more like a flat falafel patty topped with avocado.
While it was a bit weird that the menu descriptions and prices did not quite match the details of what was ultimately served, this was as good a choice as any for the occasion. I liked the aggressive Pat Benatar tunes playing in the not-quite background.
