We have decided to lease the space to famed Long Island restaurateur Tom Schaudel, who will create his newest restaurant in the space, to be called The Petulant Wino. The owner of several other restaurants on the North Fork and elsewhere on Long Island, Tom’s newest restaurant is sure to be a welcome addition to the North Fork food and wine scene.
Comtesse Thérèse wines will still be the featured wine, but Tom plans to add a few other Long Island wines and also have a full liquor license.
Tom said that he intends to keep most of the Bistro employees.
Existing Bistro gift certificates will be honored by the new establishment.
The Bistro’s wine bar will be open for the time being, on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 noon.
The Wine Club will continue as is.
Sat-Sunday: open 12 – 6 pm for winetastings and retail wine sales
