The Wine Loft

Check out these small plates of food.

Lobster Piccata with Caper Lemon Butter. Sheer perfection. The sauce was thick and buttery drenched over those toast points:

Shrimp Cocktail with Sriracha Cocktail Sauce. This was quite possibly the best cocktail sauce ev-ah because of the major horseradish flavor and tons of heat from the sriracha:

Walnut Crusted Goat Cheese over Spring Mix with Craisins and Spiced Pecans. I don't usually get excited about salad, but this one made me smile:

Want to know where to go and get all this delicousness? It would be The Wine Loft in Long Branch's Pier Village!!! The Loft features comfortable couches and an offering of plenty of great wines by the glass and by the bottle! The atmosphere is soothing and relaxing aiming to make patrons feel as though they are sipping wine in their own living room. And for the non-vino drinkers (shame on you) there is a full service spirit and mixed drink menu. I'm highly obsessed with the small plate menu selections, as evidenced by the above photos.

We've had food there before (see mouth watering cheese board below):

I love a cozy hang out with great drinks and a tempting small plates menu!!!


  1. First the Cove, and now this. All I want to do is hang out with you at these places! I could totally picture our regular Friday outings with a walk down on the boardwalk and then a whole afternoon sitting on the couch knoshing....until we get a phone call from your husband saying he's getting on the bus to head home. Then we'd have to bust it up the Parkway! :-) That cheeseboard. I. Die. And I insist on making my own cocktail sauce. I'm adding sriracha next time baby! Woohoo!

  2. Just call me the "fun police." :)

  3. I need to have that Lobster Picatta with
    Lemon Butter sauce NOW and told my live in chef so - while he protested that we have no lobster readily available - I happen to know
    a place that we can go and pick up all necessary ingredients this very evening so...
