One of Ghent's latest additions is Mermaid Winery. A winery in Ghent? It's an urban winery. So they actually have some grapes vines outside on their patio area (with lots of great outdoor seating) and make a few varieties of their own.
We made a girl's night (#36) of some wine flights, a few bottles and some tasty food. I had the hummus plate and all three were fantastic. What I like most about the place is it doesn't have that stuffy wine bar kind of feel. There is a bar and lounge area and separate dining area, but the restaurant feels very alive and open. We'll definitely be making several trips back.
