A very hungry Bwog stopped by Vareli a few minutes ago and learned it isn’t officially open until Monday. Still, last night, Laura Gabriele crossed the street from her usual perch at Campo and gave Bwog a preview.

She received a grand tour tonight from manager Nicholas Belegrinos: “The venue features a bar/lounge area which can be turned into a club (!!!) [Ed.: A club!!!] and a restaurant area upstairs with a small adorable patio. Also in the basement: gorgeous wine cellar and wine tasting possible!!”

“Food is affordable (cheaper than Community) and drink specials not yet decided but will be around $8-9…”

This is IT! Bwog has dispatched its crack culinary review team for a first taste on Monday. Here’s an early glimpse at the downstairs bar.
