As someone that has lived in Astoria almost 12 years, I can tell you that there are not many restaurants that have lasted more than a decade. That is not the case for DiWine, a cozy wine and cocktail bar that just celebrated their decade mark in the neighborhood.
Between the wine list, craft cocktails with in house infused vodkas, tasty bites, stellar service and romantic ambiance, the restaurant has all the elements to go the long haul.
To kick of December, DiWine hosted a celebration for the occasion with a birthday party. The restaurant transformed the space and added floating balloons for a festive vibe. Jazz music performances happened throughout the evening and even some of the staff got on the stage!
Passed food included their famous thin crust pizzas, tuna tartare, bacon-wrapped shrimp, calamari,seared tuna with carrot mango puree and olive tapenade, fan favorite dates and devils and a birthday cake.
Drinks served were also the best of the best from throughout the years including the Strawberry Faujito, a take on a mojito with a strawberry-infused vodka, Bourbon Cherry Old-Fashioned and a drink we feel they brought back just for us, the Peanut Butter Cup Martini, made with homemade peanut-infused vodka.
This is truly one of our favorite spots in Astoria and we felt honored to bring in this momentous occasion with DiWine. Here’s to 10+ more years!
