Whether you’re visiting State & Allen Kitchen + Bar for a date night, business dinner, or just a night out with friends, wine lists can be daunting. Many worry about ordering wine, and we totally get it. 

 

At State & Allen Kitchen + Bar, our staff is well trained in our wine menu and here to offer any assistance you need in choosing the right wine for you and your group. Here are a few other tips on how to choose a great wine here, or at any other restaurant:

 

Look Ahead of Time

 

If you’re nervous about making a decision on the wine list, why don’t you ask to see the menu in advance? Ours is readily available on our website, but you can always call the restaurant as well in order to get the most up-to-the-minute wine list and what we are offering today. Ask on the phone for recommendations and do a little research about wines that catch your eye. You’ll look like a pro when you walk in that evening! 

 

Stall with a Great Sparkling Wine or Craft Cocktails

 

Not sure where to start and need a minute longer to get your bearings? Just order a great sparkling wine, such as Prosecco, to start everyone off. Sparkling wine is light and refreshing, pairing well with most of our starters. Not into sparkling wine? A craft cocktail from State & Allen is always a good choice.

 

Look for Unique Wine Regions 

 

Go out of the box and choose a unique wine region you haven’t heard of before. You get style points for being adventurous, and your fellow dining guests will probably love it too. Not sure what the regions are or the type of wine? You can always ask for direction from our staff. 

 

Now you’re ready! Come enjoy a wonderful wine with us here at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar - the best restaurant in Dallas! Oh – and we’ve got half priced wines on Wednesdays, so even more bang for your buck.
