Eating Local

There are many restaurants in Duluth that should be recognized for their efforts to bring great wine to their patrons.

The newest addition to the downtown area is Kippis. Kippis is a Finnish Tapas Bar that takes pride in unique cocktails and world class wine. The wine list is short and simple while still providing something for everyone. Talk to Ari, Peter, or any of their expert staff and they will pair wines or wine flights with your tapas. Kippis is the only restaurant in town that serves a free amuse bouche, of Cava and Scandinavian breads.

At Sara’s Table / Chester Creek Cafe opened their new wine bar a little over a year ago. They recently started changing their menu every few months to focus on different world regions. Chefs, Mike and Bruce, select new wines especially with their featured dishes in mind. These pairing can be found on their menu which makes selecting the correct wine very simple.

Last but not least, Bellisio’s Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar. For the past eight years they have earned Wine Spectator’s “Best of Excellence” award. In addition to their fabulous Italian wines, such as Bertani Secco Valpolicella and Fonterutoli Badiola, they offer wines from all of the large wine producing areas of the world. Not sure what to order? Their knowledgeable staff will help guide you or you could always order one of their many wine flights and sample a few wines.

    Jake made a great point. The North Shore is filled with great restaurants. Nokomis has a great wine selection. They also have an off sale section so you can purchase your favorite wine to take home. New Scenic Cafe offers half priced bottles on Wednesday. Other restaurants with quality wine lists are Ledge Rock Grill and the new Lighthouse on Homestead.

    After reading Jake’s Tweets, I realized I forgot another great wine bar in Duluth. Beaner’s! They are the perfect place to listen to great local music while enjoying some great wine.
