Postino, the funky wine bar known for its $25 board-and-a-bottle deal, is set to open in Dallas’s Deep Ellum neighborhood on Monday, April 19. The small chain’s first North Texas location will be at 2647 Main Street in Dallas, sharing a building with Merit Coffee.

Postino is known for its eclectic vibe, along with boozy brunches, paninis, and shareable dishes like carpaccio and charcuterie boards. The restaurant’s bruschetta menu includes 12 different varieties, ranging from brie, apple, and fig to burrata, bacon, arugula, and tomato to smoked salmon and pesto. When possible, the Dallas location plans to source ingredients from local Texas companies, including bread from Addison bakery La Spiga.

Postino’s drink menu also features tons of wine: 40 different bottles and more than 30 wines available by the glass. One of the restaurant’s most popular dishes is the board-and-a-bottle deal, which allows diners to share a bottle of wine and four bruschettas for $25. The bar also includes beers from several Dallas-area craft breweries.

The Deep Ellum location is a fitting spot for the restaurant, which was founded in 2001 in Phoenix in a 1940s-era building that used to be a post office. Postino’s locations are typically historic buildings with decor that pays homage to the surrounding neighborhood. The Deep Ellum location will be decorated with concert posters and ticket stubs from nearby music venues, past and present.

The Dallas restaurant will also include a spacious patio with seating for 50 diners. Indoor capacity is 100 people, and customers will be required to wear masks when not seated. Postino will also offer delivery through most third-party apps.

Postino’s hours will be 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to midnight on Friday; 9 a.m. to midnight on Saturday; and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday.
