Last summer, Anne Marie wrote about two new wine bars that opened almost simultaneously in SanTana: Robbins Nest and Vineyard Roz. Now here we are, less than a year later and Vineyard Roz is already history. But we haven't been calling DTSA a hotbed of new restaurants for nothing.
As we say we hardly knew you to Vineyard Roz, we say hello to a new wine bar called The Barrel Room. It opened at 324 W. Fourth Street, housed inside the West End Theater Building.
It recently held its soft opening and so far there isn't much info on its website. A Facebook post says that they're “busy putting final touches on menu and wine offerings.” But I think I'm safe in guessing there will be a cheese platter.
Before becoming an award-winning restaurant critic for OC Weekly in 2007, Edwin Goei went by the alias “elmomonster” on his blog Monster Munching, in which he once wrote a whole review in haiku.
