The team behind the popular Williamsburg winery and event space have a 63-seat restaurant planned for 747 Franklin Ave. at Sterling Place, according to an application for a liquor license made to the local community board this week.
The new location will have a full food menu, an enclosed backyard seating area and small-batch wines made at their N. 8th Street location from New York State and California fruit, said John Stires, co-founder of the winery.
“We’re very excited to be coming to the community,” he told the board Monday night. “We’re now manufacturing enough wine to where we can open a second location.”
Stires said the price point at the Franklin Avenue location will be “relatively high” with wine going for between $10 and $16 a glass. His business partner, Brian Leventhal, said the two hope to open the new spot in late summer of this year with a full liquor license to serve cocktails to those who don’t prefer wine, they said.
The restaurant plans to be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays and until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
