Rare boutique and local wines are definitely the focus here.The bar is separated from Kunzle’s charmingly funky Maslow 6 Wine Shop by a glass wall, which creates an interesting synergy between the two businesses – you can browse the wine shop while you wait for a table or stop in afterward to buy a bottle of that amazing Finger Lakes white you just drank with your meal, and there’s no doubt that shop-goers will be drawn over to the restaurant as well.
The eatery itself has an earthy vibe, with rustic furniture, small potted plants on each table and dishes served on clay plates, stone slabs and in Mason canning jars. Chef Nickolas Kipper’s menu hasn’t been finalized yet, but based on our preview last night, it will likely include some unique twists on classic comfort food, like meatballs Wellington and chicken ’n’ waffles made with fried chicken liver instead of the standard fried chicken. And of course, what would a wine bar be without cheese and charcuterie and homemade jams? They’ll have plenty of those in the house.
Maslow 6 Wine Bar is located at 211A W. Broadway (between Franklin and White Streets). Stay tuned for an opening in the next few weeks.
