We had a rare opportunity to go out a few weeks ago and try a place that we had not been to. Even after moving here almost four years ago, it's amazing to think how many places we still haven't been to experience yet.
I had read about a place called 2020 Food + Wine Bar here in town. Small venue with fun tapas plates and wine tastings. Causal sofa seating and great patio area.
The atmosphere was perfect for a "wine down day" and the music was awesome!
We went with the server's recommendations for their Happy Hour specials and they definitely did not disappoint. Their authentic Italian wood-fired pizza oven on the patio made for a finale that was out of this world good!
Their perfectly paired Cabernet Savignon did not disappoint either.
We enjoyed our meal and time at 2020 so much that I wanted to re-create it a few weeks later during a staycation weekend date night. Always fun to relive and enjoy memories in the comforts of your own home or patio...here's what I put together. Buon Appetito!
