DiVino -- a new Wine Bar on Vancouver's Commercial Drive

fmed | Jun 18, 2008 04:37 PM

I've been watching this renovation for a while as I walk by this place daily on my way to work.

A new wine bar which will be operated by a long-standing Italian family (The Grippo family - based in the Commercial Drive area) is due to open the end of this month (June 30). They will be serving wine, cheese, salumi, and Italian small-plates. The new chef Hugh Carbery used to be sous-chef at Aurora Bistro under Jeff Van Geest....so you know the food will be good.

So now to avoid confusion, Western Canada Chowhounds will need to state which DiVino/Divino is which (Vancouver/Calgary) when making recommendations or writing reviews ;)

A great addition to my neighborhood.
