Bordinos Restaurant & Wine Bar Releases Winter Menu

NWA Daily

What might be one of the most consistent restaurants in Downtown Fayetteville, Bordinos Restaurant & Wine Bar, never fails to impress.

  • New for 2023: Upon hearing about the release of Bordinos' winter menu, the NWA Daily team had to try it out. We indulged by starting off with a glass of their recommended wine to accompany their Charcuterie + Cheese board appetizer.
  • Chef's choice: Unable to decide on 'what's next,' we went with the chef's recommendation - their special rendition of Chicken Breast and Cioppino (lobster, mussels, clams, and shrimp in a tomato broth). It was flawless.

Serving NWA for over two decades, Bordinos is an ideal location for a special night on the town.
