Celebrate #NationalDrinkWineDay at Ayza Wine and Chocolate Bar

Apparently today, February 18 is National Drink Wine Day. I had no idea this day even existed but once I became aware I knew there was one place in mind that would the perfect place to celebrate, Ayza Wine and Chocolate Bar. Their two locations of Midtown and West Village are a new breed of the wine bar. They also offer a weekly tasting workshop where you will learn about various wines and taste three wines and three gourmet chocolates.

Ayza Wine and Chocolate Bar joins decadent chocolate delights with passionate wines. It’s the perfect dining location for a couple celebrating their relationship or even a first date experience. I dined at Ayza for Valentine’s Day. Ayza’s ambiance is simple and beautiful, each table was decorated with rose petals and a long red candle. It’s also very small and intimate, perfect if you’d like a more personal dining experience. They also have an outdoor seating area that is enclosed during the winter months but also is a great touch for a memorable dining experience.

For Valentine’s Day they offered a three course dinner special for $68 each. I dined at their Midtown location. For an appetizer I had the Tomato and Cheese soup. Normally I’m not a fan of tomato soup but on a freezing snowy day in Feb, it was a delicious and warming comfort to my body. As an entree I chose the Sea Bass which was flavorful and for dessert I had their chocolate molten cake. I also was able to taste the filet mignon which was flavorful and soft. Overall, the Tomato and Cheese soup was the best. I honestly wanted a bowl to go!

Now on to the best news! Groupon offers a  date-night package for two, valid any day for $69 and $49 for Sunday through Thursday. I highly suggest you use this deal because it also includes one of their five signature chocolate martini’s for each person.
