The Wine Bar in Yaletown

A few weeks ago, I was invited to the grand opening of TWB The Wine Bar. It's located inside Provence Marinaside. The premise is that this is the place you come to for a glass of wine with a group of friends where you can enjoy some appies or even a full meal, whatever you are in the mood for that day.

Many of their small bites are priced at just $5 and we sampled any of them. This is the Risotto Ball, with a bit of mozzarella and a creamy sweet tomato sauce. 
We also tried their Gnocch, which changes daily. The sauce on this was amazing, just a touch smokey with a bit of tanginess. The little slice of cheese rounds out the bite quite nicely. 
I was also a fan of their Grilled Squid, with a nice crust on the outside and a tender little morel of squid tentacles. All of the above are perfect foods for pairing with their many glasses of wine on the menu. 
They've removed the old section that featured the antipasti for the Provence side and instead, created a bar that features their various little bites. Makes it that much harder to resist getting one, two or three items from the eclectic menu!
If you're in the Yaletown area and want to stop off somewhere for a quite drink, give TWB a try!

Take Note:

  • Most bites are just $5 or $6
  • Wines are available by the glass or by 1/4 litre
  • Bigger bites for a heartier appetite are just $18 and include a Seared Tenderloin!
