The owner of WINE JAR on Fillmore Street in Pac Heights, Kamran Shirazi, is going to be opening a second wine bar on the other side of the hill, at 3131 Fillmore Street in Cow Hollow (next door to the upcoming Atelier Crenn). It’s going to be called PE YALE, which is Farsi for “a glass of wine.” There will be around 60 wines by the glass, focusing on smaller-production vineyards, and about 65 percent will be domestic. There will also be appetizers, ranging from cold cuts to cheeses with local honeys and seasonal compotes, and some chocolate desserts. Shirazi sees the 49-seat space as an ideal place to hang out before or after dinner, at a variety of couches and high and low tables. It’s a spacious corner location, with lots of windows and high ceilings. There will be table service. He’s aiming for mid-January for the opening date. 3131 Fillmore St. at Pixley.
