After a number of years of using their second-floor space solely for private events, In Fine Spirits decided it was time to open things up. The Andersonville wine bar, which is currently looking for a new chef since Marianne Sundquist is leaving at the end of this month, is in the process of turning the upstairs into a lounge. They have moved the entrance to the north side of the facade and opened up the wall to allow patrons to hang out up- or downstairs.
During the work, IFS is offering a "Pardon Our Dust" discount for the next three Sundays (Jan. 22 and 29 and Feb. 5) where you can get 40 percent off your entire bar bill by bringing in this printed out coupon (one coupon per table, per evening). And don't forget: tip your servers on the pre-discount amount. Watch for additional cosmetic work and be on the ready for a new chef in the coming weeks. The owners are currently screening through a number of quality candidates.
