Texas-based, wine country-inspired restaurant, Sixty Vines, opened its newest location on Orlando Avenue at the Lakeside Crossing shopping center on March 17, 2020. Soon after its grand opening, the restaurant halted in-house dining due to COVID-19 protocols and transitioned to take-out only, but was able to resume dine-in service by reservation at 25% capacity on Monday, May 4.
Presently, Sixty Vines is only opening its doors to dine-in guests for dinner hours on weekdays beginning at 4 p.m., while continuing to offer carry-out services during lunch hours. On weekends, guests are welcome to dine in by reservation for brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and for dinner until 10 p.m. on Saturdays and 9 p.m. on Sundays.
To cope with the public dining restrictions that were implemented nearly immediately after its opening, Sixty Vines launched a series of carry-out options that allowed the community to get a taste of the restaurant’s food and style. Sixty Vines will continue to provide carry-out promotions, including ready-to-eat meals and take-home kits with all the ingredients needed to prepare dishes at home.
The menu is a collection of Napa-influenced dishes curated by Chef Larry Bryant, who has worked as a chef for 30 years. Options include meat and cheese boards, shared plates such as burrata and California artichoke, protein-focused main plates, pizzas, pastas, and 60 wines on tap (which is where the restaurant gets its name). Sixty Vines’ wine collection is determined by finding the most complementary wine to pair with each dish.
The 8,000-square-foot space, which formerly housed Kona Grill, boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, ample greenery, a relaxed, come-as-you-are atmosphere and a bar featuring the tap wines.
