Featured Wines & Wine Program
Bistro Menil’s new fall and winter wine menu choices were personally selected by chef Greg Martin after a rigorous but delicious wine tasting of potential offerings.
The featured wine selections include outstanding wines available by the ¼, ½, or full (bottle) carafe. Select wines available by the bottle, typically produced at smaller wineries, provide excellent, more exclusive choices, enabling a continuous updating of the select wine menu throughout the year.
Cask Wine & Craft Beer Program
Chef Greg Martin first enjoyed cask/keg wine while visiting friends in Rome and insisted on incorporating this idea into Bistro Menil. He loved the idea of being able to enjoy wine and simply fill vessels and take it home to enjoy.
Bistro Menil was among the first in Houston to offer the greener option of cask wine. First gaining traction in the U.S on the west coast, the cask wine format offers wineries the ability to reduce their bottling, packaging and shipping costs, thus substantially decreasing their carbon footprint.
Wine is kept in stainless steel containers with an inert gas to prevent oxidation and ensuring customers receive excellent wines at affordable prices. Purchased at the restaurant by the 1/4, 1/2 or full carafe (bottle), these wines can also be purchased (with a wine vessel deposit) to take home. You can’t go wrong with the excellent selections. They have proven to be among our most popular wines.
Our craft beer program includes fine choices from local breweries in Houston and Austin.
