A wine bar with two Staplehouse alumni at the helm is now open off the Eastside Beltline.
Hazel Jane’s Wine Bar opened earlier this week at 670 DeKalb Ave., in the same development as Kevin Gillespie’s Cold Beer and Shake Shack.
The spot’s team includes beverage director and general manager Melissa Davis and assistant beverage director and assistant general manager Jeremy Christensen, both formerly of Staplehouse; sous chef Kevin Simon, who previously worked at the Inn at Little Washington; and executive chef Brad Morris, formerly of Ticonderoga Club and Empire State South.
Positioned as a neighborhood wine bar, Hazel Jane’s boasts a 150 bottle wine list, with all selections available for glass pours. The business also has a small retail section available for wine to take home, and more than 40 after- dinner options including sherry, vermouth, madeira and late harvest wines).
“We believe that wine and food should be enjoyed among a group at a table and the best way to do that is with sharable plates,” according to a press release. Hazel Jane’s menu will rotate based on what’s available from local farmers and will include small plate options for dinner, an abbreviated brunch menu on Saturday and Sunday and a light lunch menu Tuesday through Friday.
Coffee drinkers will also find a brushed bronze ModBar serving Revelator Coffee.
Designed with Miami Art Deco in mind, the space’s design elements features garage doors, a large patio, 25 bar seats around a large oval bar and “lots of feminine touches.”
Hazel Jane’s is open for coffee service only from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday; starting at 8 a.m. for coffee Monday-Friday; 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. for lunch Monday-Friday; apertive 3-5 p.m. daily; 5:30-10 p.m. for dinner Tuesday-Thursday and Sunday and 5:30 p.m.-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday; and for brunch from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Saturday-Sunday.
