Only the new place is going to be called Vino Rosina since it will have a wine bar and be open in the evenings, too. I just talked to owner Jim Lancaster about the shop, which will be on the first level of the Bagby Building at 507 S. Exeter St.
He said it will feature the same great sandwiches plus more gourmet offerings, like small bites, flatbread pizzas, cheeses, exotic olives, good wine—similar to 13.5% wine bar in Hampden. "It’ll be a little upscale." Jim says. "We didn’t want it to compete with our daytime operations [in Canton and downtown]."
It was also time to create a new market for Rosina, which has been open for 10 years, Jim says. The restaurant is expected to open in early March. Hours will be 11 a.m.-11 p.m., maybe midnight on weekends. It’s perfect timing for Jim since he’s trying to get his next venture done by his 40th birthday in April. It will be quite the celebration.
