A meeting was held on 2.23 with owners of Grapperia. Details about the project can be found at the link below.
Domenic Branduzzi, owner of Piccolo Forno located at 3801 Butler Street, has proposed to open Grapperia behind his current restaurant (in the space formerly occupied by Jeffrey Smith Studio). The Grapperia would be a small wine bar where his restaurant patrons and others could enjoy a class of wine while waiting for a table or after dinner. Mr. Branduzzi has applied for a liquor license to operate the wine bar. He will attend the 6th Ward Block Watch on Monday, February 23, 2015 at 6:30 at St. Augustine’s Parish Hall ( 220 37th Street) to present plans to neighbors, and to answer any questions or concerns.
