David Butler, sommelier of the late and great Le Gourmand, is expecting to sign a lease next month on a space that will be the future home of his new wine bar. Butler, who can sometimes be found behind the bar at his old stomping grounds Le Pichet, says the 1,000 square-foot space is located in an "untapped downtown corridor." He says Le Caviste will not be a full-service restaurant, but will definitely offer food. If all goes as planned, he says you can mark your calendar for a March/April opening.
