It looks like Flora’s Wine Bar in West Newton is about to open its doors. They’re just “one inspection” away from opening, possibly this coming weekend. The restaurant, from the founders of Mei Mei and Beer Mobile, a craft beer food truck, gave quite a bit of detail to Boston Magazine, including this little tidbit:
“The whole block has the same landlady, and the knitting folks [at Putting on the Knitz] next to us have been there for 34 years, so we really just wanted to become a part of something that was lasting. We want to establish something and grow with the rest of the tenants in the community.”
They don’t have a full kitchen, so don’t expect a full meal. This is a true “wine bar”. Though, I hear you’ll soon be able to get flatbreads across the street at the soon-to-turn-over Lumiere space.
