Donna da Vine - new Atlantic Avenue wine bar

Just noticed that what I thought was going to be a nice little wine shop is actually going to be a wine bar with small plates. They have the menu in the window now, listing a large selection of wines and a small selection of food. However, a unique item on the menu was poutine, which I am a huge fan of. I'll definitely be there to see how it is - maybe they have a French Canadian in the mix? (And perhaps one of my favorite beverages to go along with poutine, sortilege!)

Anyways, it looks like it's about to open, but you never know with these things. It's located on Atlantic Avenue between Hoyt and Bond, south side of the street.

I stand corrected - apparently they opened in November? I don't think I've seen it open yet.

        1. My wife and I went for a light dinner on Saturday night. Apparently there were legal issues with opening a wine shop in the hood, so they went with the wine bar theme. Nice selection of wines and a well chosen selection of mirco-brews. We decided on a Primitivo (Flaio?) that was outstanding. Food choices are limited - we had the cheese plate, turkey panini and veggie panini. Cheeses were tasty, served at a good temperature. The sandwiches were also tasty, particularly the pepper turkey with mozzarella and apple chutney. Worth the trip.
