Now open, Vintage Enoteca on Sunset
Sunset Boulevard wine bar Vintage Enoteca has opened, a neighborhood spot envisioned by co-owners Danielle Francois and Jennifer Moore. The 36-seat wine bar was designed with the help of Kishani Perera: Think rustic-modern, with distressed metal tables, hanging Edison bulbs, black-and-white photography. New York-based sommelier Sarah Sutel consulted on the wine list; there are more than a dozen by-the-glass options from a list that features producers from Italy, France, Spain, Austria, California and Washington. A few from the list: Ameztoi Txakoli Rubentis, Basque, Spain, 2009; Köfererhof Kerner, Alto Adige, Italy, 2008; and Kunin Viognier, Stolpman Vineyard, Santa Ynez Valley, California, 2006. The menu is Italian-inspired, created by chef Paul Dozois, focusing on shared plates and small bites including house-made pickles, Parmesan-stuffed Medjool dates, and an assortment of bruschetta and flatbreads. It's open 8 a.m. to midnight. 7554 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, (323) 512-5278, www.vintageenoteca.com.
