Tannin has been on my list since it opened earlier this year. I have to say I was quite impressed. I loved the decor of the original brick mixed with the wood and modern lighting. The food was quite impressive as well.

Tannin Wine Bar & Kitchen is located in the Crossroads Art District and boast an eclectic wine list. Whether you are a wine novice or expert, Tannin offers wines by the taste, glass or bottle, to satisfy everyone’s palate. Their knowledgeable staff can assist you in selecting the perfect wine to pair with your meal.

Tannin serves both lunch and dinner and Executive Chef Brian Aaron has created a seasonal, contemporary American menu that includes a unique selection of small bites, gourmet sandwiches and eclectic entrees. With the diverse menu offerings, Tannin is the perfect place to go if you are in the mood to share a selection of small plates and a bottle of wine with friends, want a romantic dinner for two or just need a great place for lunch.

The night I visited would be classified as a romantic dinner for two as it was just Steve and I. Though we both love the small plate concept, we opted for entrees since I could not pass up the Dijon Rubbed Colorado Rack of Lamb. I love lamb and Tannin’s was cooked to perfection. The Dijon coating added a nice kick to the dish and paired nicely with the tender chops. Steve chose the Roasted Free Range Chicken Breast that was cooked perfect as well.

Tannin is currently participating in the Summer of Riesling. This nationwide campaign runs June 21st – September 22nd and highlights all of the wonderful things about Riesling. Tanning will be hosting a number of events throughout the campaign. Such events will include numerous Rieslings by the glass for $5.00 all summer long, Riesling tastings every Tuesday 5 pm – 7 pm and Riesling themed events including a Bastille Day Multi-Course Dinner Thursday, July 14th.
