Citrus City Grille – Argentine Tango Review

by Renee on October 22, 2010

Okay, so my husband loves… I mean LOVES the tango.  And it was his birithday. So I couldn’t think of a better place to go to celebrate  than The Citrus City Grille for their Argentine Wine Dinner Flight & Tango Show.

We were personally greeted by the owners, who were there for the event, and were seated at a  U-shaped table arrangement where everyone in attendance could view the tango show up-close-and-personal.  The event started with an introduction of the wines chosen for the evening,  a brief description of the menu and an introduction of the dancers who would perform for us.  It was a romantic, candlelit setting which was befitting to the tango, and throughout the evening I couldn’t help but notice the easy conversation taking place. The owners really did set the tone for this by their own genial personalities.  We couldn’t help but feel good.

Of course, good wine,  food spiced just right, and excellent service all contrubuted to the good feeling. Every course was served artfully with a specially chosen wine, and was delicious. While we enjoyed the tastes of Argentina, we were treated to the dancing and a short explanation of how the tango came to be.   I loved every course, but  I have to say my favorite course was the final one, Dulce de Leche with the Malbec Rose ’08  wine.  Our compliments to Chef Sandro Ontivieros and staff, and owners Steve Xenos and Steve Tsirtsis.

Citrus City Grille will be hosting a Greek Wine Dinner Flight  night on November 17th at 7:00pm in the Orange location and it promises to be just as good, if not better, since the owners bring their own Greek heritage to the table!  For more information, please go to their web site:
