James Beard award winner and Top Chef alum, Chef Karen Akunowicz will soon open the doors of her new restaurant, Bar Volpe. Just a few blocks away from Fox & the Knife, the new space serves as an ode to Southern Italy. There will be a pasta maker in the window for passers by and diners alike to admire. Glass doors and walls will envelope the wide open space of the dining room and there is plenty of room to gather for drinks with friends as you wait for your table. Whether you arrive in a t-shirt and jeans or polished and poised for a celebration, Bar Volpe is ready for every occasion.
So, this October, enjoy a slice of their wine list. Lambrusco, Cortese, Sangiovese, and Nebbiolo. It's a perfect snapshot of what you're sure to enjoy once you walk through the doors of Bar Volpe. We can't wait to visit!
