When the opportunity came for owner Dina Castillo to breathe new life into the former Rosa Linda’s Mexican Cafe, Chef Matt Selby was the first choice for her Bremen’s Wine & Tap concept, which opened Wednesday, June 21.
Following roughly a year of construction, tastings and trainings, the three-room eatery is approachable and family-friendly with exposed brick, wooden tables, metal chairs, opening up to a 24-seat patio.
Offering brunch, lunch and dinner seven days a week in the Lower Highlands neighborhood at 2005 West 33rd Avenue, Selby and Isabel Ranney head up the kitchen, creating seasonally inspired dishes with New American flavors and flare. Selby, formerly of Central Bistro and Vesta, has designed a menu filled with hearty sandwiches and local specialties, like green chile. His signature rotisserie porchetta is served as an entree, sandwich or on the eggs Benedict. Other brunch highlights include the prime rib and eggs soaked in red wine butter, while lunch and dinner includes a crispy whole bass.
To accompany the fare, white and red wines are available on a tap system along with signature cocktails, from local mixologist, Kyle West. Happy hour runs daily from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, Bremen’s sits directly next door to the newly opened Senor Bear, bringing new tastes and attractions to the 33rd and Tejon block.
