A couple of months ago, I mentioned there was a new wine bar coming to Chestnut Street, CULTIVAR, and it’s now open. You can read more in my original post, but expect small-batch wines, seasonal small plates, and 36 seats. Open Wed-Sun 3pm-11pm. 2379 Chestnut St. at Divisadero, 415-962-4200.
I also mentioned that London Market had morphed into MAISON CORBEAUX AT LONDON MARKET, a wine and spirits shop from Kyle Nadeau, who reportedly worked at D&M Liquors on Fillmore for nearly a decade. It also ends up Maison Corbeaux Fine Wines & Spirits has changed its name from The Bank of Wine & Spirits and moved from its FiDi location on the ground floor of Wingtip—the last day in that location is May 19th. Swing by for the opportunity to “rob the bank” with a 15 percent discount on all in-store purchases at 550 Montgomery Street. Meanwhile, Maison Corbeaux at London Market is open daily 11am-7pm, with a vast selection of wines, beers, spirits, and more. A deli and coffee stand are in the works, plus a tasting bar. 2901 Sacramento St. at Divisadero.
One last bit of news: if you come by ~SONS & DAUGHTERS~, now exclusively under the ownership of chef Teague Moriarty, you’ll see a new wine director, Amy Currens. She was previously a Champagne specialist with Moët Hennessy and also served as wine and beverage director at Farmshop in Marin and wine director at Prospect. Moriarty just rolled out a new nine-course menu ($150), and you can rest assured her pairings ($89) are going to rock (with selections off her newly expanded list).
