Alpana Singh to Return with Wine Bar

January 10 2012 - 10:39 AM

It's been just a bit over a month since sommelier and Check Please! host Alpana Singh announced that she would leave her post as wine director for Lettuce Entertain You restaurant group, and Singh already has a new venture in the works. Singh tells Crains that she plans to open a wine bar with Matt Fisher and John Ward, the co-owners of Gold Coast French restaurant Bistronomic.

The wine bar will be located in Chicago, though a specific space has not yet been announced. Sources tell Crains that the group has been eyeing property at Superior and Wells, but that the 1872 building at that corner would take a lot of work to renovate. Without a location set, the project is likely at least six months out, so check back for updates on what the high-profile sommelier has in the works.
