We told you it was coming.
Pavle Milic and Charleen Badman
, the masterminds behind FnB
, have been busy working on their latest Old Town Scottsdale venture (or three) -- Baratin, Bodega, and AZ Wine Merchants
-- and tonight we'll be able to snag our first look at the new digs.
Housed in a 1950's building called the Kiva Center, Scottsdale's new "triple threat" will feature a market, a European style cafe, and a boutique wine shop.
Baratin -- the trio's tiny cafe -- will open tonight for dinner. The tiny menu will feature a rotating menu of just five items -- one sandwich, pate, a cheese plate, one vegetable, and dessert. Price will range from $8-$12. We anticipate it to be a sort or FnB quick fix.
The "green" market, Bodega, is the spot that we're really excited about. MJ breads, fresh locally sourced veggies and eggs, Sweet republic ice cream, high-end meats, and Charleen's fresh doughnuts and sauces will all be available in one spot.
And then there is the AZ Wine Merchant which will sell -- you guessed it -- wine. The boutique wine shop will feature an ever-changing selection of Arizona wines (12 reds and 12 whites) and an impressive selection of half bottles of global wines. Bottles will range from $15-$35 for Arizona brands and $5-20 for the global wines.
Both the Bodega and AZWM will be open for business tomorrow.
Wine, doughnuts, and Charleen's sandwiches? Hell. Yes.
FYI -- The trio will be closed on Mondays. Baratin 11 - 10 p.m., Bodega 11 - 7 p.m., AZWM 11 - 8 p.m.
