Immerse yourself in the rustic elegance of Tarpy’s Roadhouse located at 2999 Monterey Salinas Hwy, Monterey. Tarpy’s announces that it’s popular Wine Down Wednesdays will begin in October 2012 and will be featured every Wednesday, every month, 12 months a year!
“Wine Down Wednesdays” showcases local vintners, wineries and their wines and offers Tarpy’s customers the chance to taste great wines and chat up a winery expert. Each week, the featured winery offers tastes of several of its wines and Tarpy’s offers those same wines at half-price By-The-Glass and by the bottle. Additionally, Chef Kimmel features a discounted, 3-course prix-fix menu complimenting that week’s featured wines. Guests will also have the chance to enter a monthly drawing for a dinner for two at Tarpy’s and a basket of wine! Wine-Down Wednesdays are free and open to the public.

Background on Tarpy’s Roadhouse:
Tarpy’s Roadhouse is pure and simple and celebrates the heritage and craftsmanship of the classic Roadhouse with a few new twists and turns. Relax in the rustic elegance of this 1917 Roadhouse and enjoy a cornucopia of diverse tastes and treats! Our food comes from local farmers, fisherman, ranchers and foragers and our own edible herb garden. The menu changes with the season, as nature intended, and deftly prepared dishes celebrate all that Monterey County has to offer. Tarpy’s wine cellar contains a large section dedicated to the same them of local abundance.
The welcoming dining room has a stylish, rustic decor. On sunny afternoons, patrons can relax under market umbrellas on the outdoor patio, sip margaritas, enjoy tasty libations and munch on Tarpy’s delicious food.
Come nightfall, the place fills with tourists and locals alike who pile in for a hefty plate of bourbon-molasses Pork Chop, Dijon-crusted lamb loin or Chef Kimmel’s vegetarian selections. Don’t miss the dry-packed, Maine sea scallops on edamame puree. it is to die for. Tarpy’s also has a wonderful selection of fresh, local, sustainable fish, shellfish and vegetable dishes – but the good ol’ meat ‘n’ potato mainstays sizzling from the wood-fired grill like steaks and wild game, sell the best. Make sure to try the juicy meatloaf and garlic whipped potatoes!
