Three Reasons to stop in for sipping at the new 3500 Winehaus

October 7th 03:10pm, 2010

100710_3500WinehausWelcome to Three Reasons, a new online column that tells you exactly why to visit certain spots around town. We won’t just tell you that a new restaurant has opened, we’ll tell you what dish we’d get there. We won’t simply report that a festival is happening this weekend, we’ll tell you which parts can’t be missed. Consider them recommendations or think of them as simple suggestions. Either way, here’s three reasons …

The grand opening celebration at 3500 Winehaus is Oct. 8 and 9, and owners John and Marci Kuehner have given customers at their wine bar and retail shop at 3500 Watson Road a handful of reasons to stop by. Here’s what we like:

1. If you don’t feel like ordering a bottle from the selection of 82 wines, you’re bound to find something on the by-the-glass menu that features 12 reds, 12 whites and two sparkling wines from around the globe.

2. The Kuehners support the city by purchasing salami, coppa and mortadella from establishments on The Hill, and Turkish bread dips (think baba ganoush, hummus and that roasted red pepper pleaser, biber ezme) from Aya Sofia. The wine bar doesn’t have a kitchen for making their apps and the Kuehners could be grabbing prepped food from, say, Sam’s. We’re glad they didn’t.

3. A plan for all seasons. The interior is tastefully decorated but when you need a breath of fresh air, the covered patio in front will be a respite. As the weather cools, they will be adding side flaps to ward off the chill and opening a back patio with a fire pit. In January, renovation of the basement commences. Upon completion, the room will service wine tastings and private dinner parties.

    The deserts are rich, wonderful and local as well. Great addition to the neighborhood! The front patio is still cozy in the midst of winter!
