New York City offers a variety of ways to dine, but when you're looking for the perfect intimate spot to enjoy a meal for two, there's simply one place to go – Heidi's House by the Side of the Road.
If you are seeking a much needed vacation away from the crowded restaurants, you can wine and dine with a special guest in this cozy restaurant and wine bar. Heidi's House features a number of great selections off the menu, and to dazzle your taste buds you can try pairing a great meal with an even better wine for additional flavor.
Consider starting off your meal with one of Heidi's unique twists to traditional salad with the shrimp salad. After you've prepped yourself for fresh and tasty flavors, be sure to order the paella for the main course. Paella is one of the world's great one-pot meals, and this spectacular dish features chorizo, chicken and shrimp with spices from dried oregano, paprika, crushed red pepper and lemon for added zest. The flavor in this dish is also light if you are craving a meal that's less than heavy, but equally delicious!
Since there is usually a lot of seafood in paella, a perfect wine for pairing with this dish is a chilled glass of Albariño from the cool-climate Spanish region of Granbazan. This wine brings out the flavor of shrimps, mussels and clams. Yet, if you are a fan of red wine, you can try another alternative that's equally great for pairing is an organic Rioja, which is a classic Spanish wine made primarily from tempranillo grapes. This pairing should make for a great meal and before you leave reminiscing about all the great flavors you've just experienced, be sure to order a tantalizing date pudding which is particularly appetizing this season.
Heidi's House by the Side of the Road offers a series of great foods and wines on the menu that you can mix and match as desired, so be sure to visit this restaurant and come back to try another tasty pairing.
