New Wine Bar in New Preston!

 

 

If you are looking for something to do this weekend, go and stop by The Owl!

The owner and executive chef of the Main Street Grill in Watertown, John Bourdeau, has opened a modern wine bar in the center of New Preston. Modeled after an authentic European wine bar, The Owl provides a cozy intimate setting for you to relax with a glass of wine or craft beer. The wine bar features an extensive list of wines including the typical wine by the glass as well as rare wines. There is also a ‘small bites’ menu that features snacks such as nuts and olives, local meats and cheeses chosen to complement the wines and beers available, and various desserts.
