The owners of Glazed and Infused have traded doughnuts for wine and pastas as they’ve switched up their Fulton Market space to open Joe’s Imports tonight. The restaurant’s named after Joe Fiely, operating partner and wine director for Francesca’s Restaurant Group. Wine is in the spotlight with more than 250 bottles including 10 to 20 red and white by the glass.

Many of those wines will be available to go. But for those dining in, the menu includes fresh pastas, small and large entrees, and other food that goes well with wine. The space seats 65, and there’s going to be a 15-seat patio. Francesca’s brought in 555 Design to renovate the doughnut shop.
