When the tasting began in 1990, it was the only fully integrated wine shop / wine bar / restaurant on the east coast. About twenty years later in the United States there are still only a few places like Tastings. Besides the fact that Tastings is not only an outstanding wine shop, but also an excellent restaurant, it offers a large selection of wines by the glass. Wines are offered on flights to experiment with food for a modest fee compared to the retail price of wine in the store. Tastings Restaurant offers a simple, straightforward cuisine that gives each client a delicious and informative experience in a friendly, but professional restaurant.
