Vinateria at FDB/8th Avenue and 119th Street appears to be making slow progress but things are definitely moving along. This past week, we noticed that the facade just received a new coat of dark paint on it and a public announcement in reference to a liquor license application with the community board has been posted on the door. The eatery should therefore be serving wine and cocktails when they finally open but from the looks of the gutted interior, this might not really happen until the new year.
