Backstreet Wine Salon Closes its Restaurant

Phoenix has lost a hidden gem, at least in part.

The restaurant at Backstreet Wine Salon -- a classy little spot behind Gaslight Square on Indian School -- served its last dinner this past Saturday night. However, Backstreet's wine shop remains open for retail sales.

Owner Jock Wulffson got the word out in an email newsletter on Friday.

"I want to express my sincere gratitude to all of my customers who have become more than just customers -- you have become friends as well," he wrote.

Backstreet's retail hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and noon to 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
