Let’s call it Opening Day for oenophiles. Underdog Wine Co. (319 E. 55th St.), the new wine shop from Ryan Sciara, will open in the Crestwood Shops on Tuesday, April 1, at 9:30 a.m.
Sciara, formerly with The Cellar Rat downtown, talked to The Recommended Daily in January about his plans for the 581-square-foot space. In addition to wines organized from light-bodied whites to full-bodied reds (akin to a restaurant’s wine list), Sciara will stock craft beers and spirits. He’ll also have some small batch chocolates available and plans to hold tastings and classes in the coming months.
Underdog Wine Co. will open Monday through Saturday at 9:30 a.m. The shop will initially have Sunday hours from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The phone number is 816-286-4139.[Image via Facebook: Underdog Wine. Co.]
