Wine Bar Wonders

If vino is the specialty, count on classed-up versions of the bar food you love most.

Tuna Nachos

The sprinkling of bell peppers and green onion is where similarities end between typical nachos and D'vine Wine Bar's ($11). This elegant version replaces tortilla with crisp house-made wonton chips, beef with lightly seared ahi tuna and cheese with a swirl of soy. Intense wasabi sour cream finishes the dish. 836 W. St. Clair Ave., Cleveland, 216-241-8463,


An ode to the more than 100 wines at Battery Park Wine Bar, this flatbread ($11) combines ingredients that go well with vino. The crisp flatbread layered with a peppery arugula pesto is finished with creamy slices of camembert and plenty of roasted red seedless grapes for a bite of salty and sweet all at once. 7524 Father Frascati Ave., Cleveland, 216-631-9463,


The trio ($6) of organic garlic and herb cheese, portobello mushroom with goat cheese, and cheddar habanero comes from Pierogies of Cleveland. But Clifton Martini & Wine Bar adds its own touch. After pan-frying each in butter and onions, they're served with a caramelized onion sauce and a side of sour cream. 10427 Clifton Blvd., Cleveland, 216-965-0221,
