Popular Menu Items at St. Louis Wine Bars

Soup: From the high end to the warm and hearty, wine bars almost always have some form of soup. Soup is an excellent choice for any menu because it is variable, can be changed up per the day of the week, and usually loved by all. Soup is also a great appetizer for a main meal and has been known to go well with wine. Many soups are also made with wine, so you can see how the menu items blend together. 

Hors d'oeuvres: From cheese blocks and pickles to more complicated menu items such as stuffed scallops, sliders, or even chips, you can find all sorts of Hors d'oeuvres at wine bars. Some of the most common options include cheese platters with different selections of cheese, and meat platters with items such as salami, ham, and more. Stuffed dates, bruschetta, crab cakes, and more, might also be on the menu depending on where you are at. 

Seafood:Seafood is popular to serve with white and rose wine, and it is easily dressed up into an array of fancy dishes, which is what makes it so popular at wine bars. Expect salmon, mussels, and probably shrimp to be on nearly every wine bar menu. A few various incarnations could include crab cakes, shrimp scampi, cocktail shrimp, and more! 

Tapas:Tapas are a similar to Hors d'oeuvre but are served as the main meal. The tradition originated in Spain and might include anything from bruschetta to stuffed peppers and cheese. Regardless of what is on the tray, diners are generally going to have a good time savoring small bites of food paired with excellent wine. One of the best things about tapas is that you get to try a little bit of everything, and some options are all you can eat.

Sandwich: No menu would be complete without the trusty sandwich, and many wine bars literally make an art out of them. From hamburgers and reubens to more exotic sandwiches with steak, avocado, or meat loaf, you can expect to find and enjoy a range of sandwiches. Many options will be piled high with delicious filling, but most will be arranged to look as good as they taste.

Every menu is likely to be slightly different so look around, check out different menus, and see what you like. If you are in a new place, you can almost always benefit from asking the waiter for a recommendation and going with that. Most of the time they will know what is good! Importantly, you might also want to ask for a wine pairing suggestion with your meal.
