Montrose Cheese & Wine, the newest venture from master sommelier David Keck’s Goodnight Hospitality, kicks open the doors today.
The new cheese shop, wine bar, and market is set to debut at 1618 Westheimer Road, occupying an 800 square foot space, according to a press release. The small space is intended to evoke a European salumeria vibe, with custom metal pieces, oiled white oak shelves, and Griotte marble. About 10 seats will be available at the bar for dining in.
In addition to the constantly rotating selection of top-notch cheeses that will be on offer, Montrose denizens can also look forward to pastries like Portuguese egg tarts, coffee and espresso drinks from Greenway Coffee, and plenty of upscale pantry additions like Italian dried pasta, olive oil, and professional-quality bar tools. Wine director Ryan Cooper has selected 125 wines for the shop, including uber-trendy natural and organic wines.
This is just the first Goodnight Hospitality establishment to debut as part of the group’s planned Montrose takeover. By the end of the month, the group will debut brand new restaurant Rosie Cannonball, and a second, Mediterranean-focused eatery called March is also in the works.
Montrose Cheese & Wine is now open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
