When Postino WineCafé makes its debut at Heights Mercantile, the city will soon be home to a new all-day drinking destination.
The Phoenix-based wine bar is expected to arrive at the growing development in the Heights later this month, bringing plenty of wine to a renovated warehouse built in the 1940s. As far as the food is concerned, diners can look forward to a menu of wine-friendly fare, ranging from snacks like spicy Marcona almonds to more than a dozen different types of savory and sweet bruschetta, paninis, and salads.
Wine enthusiasts can look forward to a list of 30-plus bottles of wine, many of which are priced at $5 per glass during happy hour. Local brews from Live Oak, 8th Wonder, and St. Arnold’s are on draft, along with a selection of bottled craft beers from breweries across the country. The restaurant is poised to become a brunch destination on Saturdays and Sundays, thanks to $5 bellinis and dishes like ciabatta French toast.
Postino WineCafé will officially open its doors on April 11. The restaurant will be open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday from 11 a.m. to midnight. On the weekends, brunch service starts at 9 a.m.
