There's been a wine store on this corner since 1957 and when the prior owners decided not to renew their lease, we saw wisdom in the notion of taking it under the wing of right-next-door Tarbell's.  After all, Mark is a renowned wine expert and some of us have those letters after our names.   

We connected it to The Tavern to make a big happy wine space.  The Store serves as the restaurant's "Walk In Wine List" where guests can pay retail prices in a restaurant experience.  

We just couldn't restrain ourselves to retail, though, and started having parties in there.  Worked so well we now use it as a private dining room.  Click the Parties link for more info.
