Sixth & Vine ~ Nik Snacks

Bite it and write it. That's what I do. Fueled by butterbeans & collard greens.

There are a total of SIX (6) restaurants listed in my area at OpenTable.com. I wonder if this is because the internet means nothing to the nicer restaurants in my city, the lack of restaurants in my city, or I should move to a more gastronomical friendly city/town/state.

I love my city, I really do. My #1 favorite restaurant isn't listed on OpenTable.

6th & Vine, a wine bar at 209 West Sixth St. in Winston-Salem. Not only do I love the food, I love the atmosphere as well.

Sundays, bottles of wine are half-price. My favorite part is getting a flight of wine for just $12. I get to sample 4 different kinds & remember not to get the Tempranillo because it really doesn't taste too good...

Wednesdays, is dinner & a movie--get dinner and sit out back on the patio and watch a movie projected on one of the exposed brick walls. But now that fall is upon us, it's Wine Down Wednesdays, instead.

Most Saturday nights, a live band plays, giving me reason to come on out and dance come on out and make romance.

Lots of social events are hosted here & it's always a treat to meet up with the Winston-Salem Jaycees here. Maybe one day they'll convince me to join...

The real reason why I come here is the food. I love to drink (oops! Did I say that aloud?) but what better to go with drink than food? My favorite are the tapas, flatbread pizzas, & the paninis.



I adore crabcakes almost as much as I do beer. This one was well-made. More crab than cake, buttery, hot, spicy, with a nice remoulade.

My #1 favorite appetizer: Jamaican jerk beef skewers with coconut thai sauce. I love the presentation. The skewers are set in a halved orange and the sauce is in the other hallowed-out half.




My roommate & I hanging out on the back patio. Why I'm grinning so hard, I do. Not. Know.

You're grinning because you had a little to drink, and delicious food outside :) That's grintastic all the way.

Winston is pretty cool, we'll have to hit it up next time.

Because you are So. Damn. Happy.

Sounds like a great restaurant. (Check out San Francisco's Foreign Cinema online.)

Nikki, this restaurant sounds like a great place to eat (and drink). The idea of movies outdoors while you have dinner sounds divine. Someday I'll join you. I think you're smiling because you are a happy soul.

adam: a little to drink? are you kidding me? you don't know me very well do you? :) I know Winston far better than Greensboro. I can 100% guarantee fun times.

CC: I will.

Kristie: Thanks, girl! ;)

Teresa: It was so much fun this summer going there & watching the movies. We'd order appetizers & share with everyone at the table. One week, my mom showed up! Random & unexpected. Then more & more friends started showing up. We had a 15-person table by the end. It was one of the best summer nights of 2008.

Adorable picture.

Restaurants probably have to pay to be listed at Opentable, don't they? Also a lot of restaurants don't even take reservations, so there's no point in being listed.
