Debuting on Tuesday, October 3, is The Salzburg, a much anticipated new Austrian-themed wine bar project from the team behind nearby spots Union Larder and Little Vine. Hoodline first had word of the project, in the former Cinecitta space at 663 Union Street, over a year ago, and now Tablehopper has some photos of the space which "feels as if an Austrian chalet was dropped into North Beach."
On the menu, in addition to wines from California producers working in Austrian/Alpine styles, you'll find "wines you’d find around the Alps, from regions like the Jura to Valle d’Aosta and Slovenia," per Tablehopper, like Riesling, Zweigelt, etc. And there's a whopping 45 wines by the glass, with some on tap, starting at a reasonable $10 a glass.
It sounds like there's a fairly full food menu with complete dinner options from chef Ramon Siewert (Union Larder) as well, including fondue, spins on shnitzel and spätzle stroganoff, and housemade sausages.
The big bonus: There's a well protected back patio with a fire pit, and the crew is hoping people will take advantage of sitting out there, Alpine style, well into the winter.
There's apparently a small chance they won't open in time as there's an inspection or two still pending, but expect hours, after October 3, to be Tuesday & Wed 4 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., Thursday to Saturday, 4 p.m. to midnight, and Sunday 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
