Chic wine bar -- see and be seen -- at Arizona's Postino

Postino is a chic little wine bar/restaurant in Arizona, with a few locations. I was very happy to be hosted to experience the Mesa/Gilbert location!

Since this is a place that professional Mesa loves to come to, dress is dressy casual or dress to impress. Also, keeping with that theme and also with being a wine bar, they have all kinds of plates/platters meant to share.

They're really known for -- and deservedly so! -- their bruschettas. These are the flavors:

Brie & Apples with Fig Spread
Fresh Mozzarella with Tomato & Basil
Prosciutto with Figs & Mascarpone
Warm Artichoke Spread
Smoked Salmon with Pesto
Tomato Jam & Fresh Sheep's Milk Cheese
Burrata, Bacon, Arugula & Tomato
Ricotta with Dates & Pistachios
White Bean with Chopped Tomato
Roasted Peppers with Goat Cheese
Salami with Pesto

As you can see, there are vegetarian and vegan options, too. Good for everyone in your group! I like the flavor combinations: familiar but with unexpected twists.

So, what kind of wine did I get? Actually, I went in another direction and got the refreshing cucumber lemonade. People were looking at my tall, cool drink with envy. So, even non-drinking friends can enjoy this wine bar.
