So long, Kona; hello, Napa.
Sixty Vines, so named for its 60 wines on tap, will move into the 8,000-square-foot space recently vacated by Kona Grill in Winter Park's Lakeside Crossing next spring.
The Texas-based restaurant currently has two locations — one in Dallas and another in Plano, with a Houston location slated to open this summer.
Guests will feast on the "seasonal cuisine of wine country made with local ingredients" which, judging from the menus at the Texas locations
, include pesto-crusted, wood-fired cauliflower; coconut- and cilantro-infused tonnarelli with jumbo Gulf shrimp; squash blossom pizza and wood-grilled American Wagyu strip steak with chimichurri.
The space itself promises to be a beaut as well.

According to a press release, patrons will dine with views of the open kitchen and charcuterie bar and, like the Sixty Vines in Texas, there will be an enclosed greenhouse patio offering a "wine garden experience" and a full bar.

Let's hope this Cali concept lasts a bit longer than Carmel Kitchen & Wine Bar, which closed early last year
Sixty Vines will be open for lunch and dinner and promises to bring some NoCal vibes to its weekend brunch.
