Locally owned Ciro's Italian Grill offers exquisite wines that you can pair with pasta or pizza. For example, the Brunello or Super Tuscan pair well with a portion of pasta.

For steak, enjoy a Cabernet Sauvignon or Zinfandel with your dinner at Perry's Steakhouse or Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar. Or try wines from South America, such as Malbec or Tannat, at Sal Y Pimienta and Texas de Brazil, which have delightful South American steak dinners.
