NEWS: BIN 8945

On June 15, we are getting a new wine bar and bistro in West Hollywood: BIN 8945 .

BIN 8945 will serve a menu that includes an oyster bar, small plates, large plates and desserts of mostly European bistro-style food.

Owner David Haskell was a wine director at Aubergine in Newport Beach and Aquavit in New York, and his partner and executive chef Matt Carpenter previously worked at Josie, in Santa Monica.

The wine list will include over 450 labels, at least 100 of which will be under $50. According to the L.A. Times, they plan to have 57 wines by the glass.

There is also a bar with some interesting cocktails. Example: P, B & J -- Rasberry Vodka, Frangelico, Grape Juice. They will also serve a variety of sakes.

So all of my foodie friends, people who just got jobs, wine-loving friends, or just friends, I invite you to come try this place, because with that kind of a selection, I will be there, and probably not too long after it opens.
