Chan’s “The Wine Bar” Destin Florida – Wine, Cheese and More

Destin wine bars restaurants

Hidden, sleek, metro.  I like Chan’s “The Wine Bar” in Destin, Florida. It’s a restaurant inside Chan’s Wine World, the mega wine and liquor store that’s been around the Emerald Coast for many years.  Located next to the bountiful cheese shop inside Chan’s, there’s a very cool restaurant that feels like a secret club.  Put it this way, if you were shopping the aisles of Chan’s store, you wouldn’t know the restaurant was there unless you wandered over.  It almost has a speak-easy feel.

The menu at Chan’s “The Wine Bar” in Destin features appetizers of Cheese Flights with three to five cheeses or the Gran Cru Board for $50.00 with a smorgasburg of olives, cured meats, cheeses, nuts, baguette, etc.  We ordered the beet hummus plate for an appetizer for $8.00 which included lavash, celery and carrots. The hummus was a gorgeous smoky red and had a delicate taste. For lunch, I ordered the Roasted Chicken and Pesto Panini for $12.00 and my friend the Seared Ahi Tuna Salad for $14.00.

My panini came with a light side salad with shaved parmegiano cheese. The warmed sandwich had melted mild cheese, roasted red pepper, caramelized onions and basil pesto on a ciabatta roll.  I would have preferred the roll a little more crunchy, but it was delicious.  My friend’s Ahi Tuna Salad  had a dressing of cucumber-wasabi dressing, sesame seeds and picked-ginger. The tuna had a sweet soy glaze.  When we finished we wandered around Chan’s and looked at some nice Italian Brunelli wines and lusted after the cheeses on display.  Next time we are at “The Wine Bar” in Destin, we’ll combine our lunching with stocking up and maybe a little splurging!
