I got my first chance since we had the twins to hit the town in Winter Park without the wife and kids. Sarah and the boys were down in Denver visiting the grandparents and doing some Christmas shopping and I was able to paint WP town red.
Met a couple of friends at Deno’s Mountain Bistro for the Vino at Deno’s. This is Deno’s tasting flight of two wines paired with appetizers for the nice price of $10. The wines were a Vouvray paired with an artichoke bruchette and Pinot Noir paired with shrimp on a rosemary skewer. Very very tasty and the presentation was low key and accessible as it should be here in Winter Park. Teddy, Deno’s son and now owner, was the host with the heavy pouring hand and had some very good knowledge of the wines we were enjoying.
After the tasting I had the Chicken Marsala that was awesome! Tender chicken breast in a Marsala wine sauce with mushrooms over a bed of pasta with spinach. Deno’s is now making homemade bread that was also fantastic. Must have come straight from the oven.
Check out Deno’s Facebook page for deals and specials.
We ended the night at Ullr’s the new bar that took the Silver Bucket’s space in the Conoco shopette. That is for another post though.
