Last night marked the first ever Taco Tuesday at Vine + Dine located upstairs in the Southern Exposure building, 402 W Main. The majority of our Real Estate office staff and a few friends decided to attend in order to help support this new business, but more importantly, we all really like Tacos and Margaritas. We were not disappointed.
After bringing the first round of Ritas, the waiter inquired as to the type of Tacos we would like to have, he proceeded to rattle off about four different types and explained each one. By the time the waiter got around to take my order, the bottom of my Margarita glass was starting to become visible making me agreeable to just about anything so I opted for the combo platter in order to avoid having to make any difficult decisions. This proved to be one of the best non-decisions I had made all day.
The Tacos were excellent, some had been roasted on a grill on the deck, others had been prepared in the kitchen, they were accompanied with a really nice chile red sauce, refried beans and a fresh cous cous salad.
Matt Dietz, the proprietor has gone out of his way to bring something new and different to Red River. The atmosphere is not typical of Red River, but I think that's the point. Dietz has put in a lot of effort in to creating a unique ambiance, and it's working. As an added bonus, Vine + Dine also serves Red River Brewing Co beer along with a selection of fine wines and spirits.
If you want to keep up with what's happening at Vine + Dine, I would suggest liking their Facebook page as Dietz does a pretty good job of keeping everyone in the know.
