Wine and Beer at Starbucks?

February 1, 2012

With five Starbucks Coffee locations in Beverly Hills, it’s safe to say that many residents visit the popular chain. But soon, your local Starbucks may offer more than coffee, lattes, sweets and sandwiches. The company began serving wine, beer and premium foods during the evening at some of its Pacific Northwest stores starting in October 2010. Now a handful of SoCal Starbucks will begin offering wine, beer, savory snacks, small plates and hot flatbreads by the end of the year, the coffee giant announced last week . The next locations with the expanded menu have yet to be announced. “As our customers transition from work to home, many are looking for a warm and inviting place to unwind and connect with the people they care about,” Starbucks Senior Vice President for U.S. Operations Clarice Turner said. “At select stores where it is relevant for the neighborhood, we are focused on creating an atmosphere where our customers can relax with a friend, a small bite to eat and a cup of coffee or glass of wine.” In addition to the wine, beer and stepped-up food offerings, some stores plan to also have “flexible seating” to accommodate individuals and small groups, as well as larger parties. Beverly Hills Starbucks are located at 428 N. Beverly Drive , 9844 Wilshire Blvd. , 257 S. La Cienega Blvd. ,  9045 W. Olympic Blvd. and  202 S. Beverly Drive .

Coming Attractions : Andrew Kirschner To Open Tar & Roses Early December

Coming Attractions : Andrew Kirschner To Open Tar & Roses Early December

Tar & Roses , the anticipated and seemingly slow going project from chef Andrew Kirschner (Wilshire), is estimated to open on December 1 . A release today reveals a few more details on the ingredient-driven Santa Monica eatery, and we’re told that the “soul” of the restaurant is its wood-burning oven. Kirschner plans to burn a slew of different woods (almond, apple, olive, oak, walnut) to impart flavor on food, and every day the menu will list the daily choice of wood. Here, the menu is influenced by Kirschner’s travels to Italy, Spain, and Southeast Asia, and the expansive menu seemingly offers something for everyone. To start there’s a “Bruschetta Bar” where guests can order combos like chopped liver/pickled onions and rabbit rillettes/prune jam/marcona almonds, in addition to charcuterie and cheese. Meanwhile, the main menu is divided into the following categories: snacks, veggies, small, and large. Selects range from crispy lamb belly with minted apple chutney to Meyer lemon ricotta gnocchi with charred baby broccoli to wood-roasted crispy pork knuckle with creamy farro, pickled pear, and chile salad. Winemaker Chris Keller has worked out the wine list with both domestic and imported bottles. As for aesthetic, Kirschner will combine some old and some new plus reclaimed elements when possible. Tables are made from wood and Carrera marble, serveware is Heath Ceramics, and water glasses are made from recycled wine bottles. Expect polished concrete floors, black banquettes, plus an outdoor space described as an “urban patio.” Tar & Roses has capacity to seat 75 diners and will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 5:30 to 10:30PM. Lunch should debut next year. · All Tar & Roses Coverage [~ELA~] Read this article: Coming Attractions : Andrew Kirschner To Open Tar & Roses Early December
