Cru Cellars will bring its wine selection and cheese and charcuterie boards to the Westshore Marina District.
The South Tampa wine shop and restaurant has signed a lease for 2,400 square feet in the 52-acre mixed-use district at Westshore and Gandy boulevards, developer BTI Partners said Wednesday.
Cru, which has locations in South Tampa and Heights Public Market within Armature Works, will serve wine by the glass, cocktails, from-scratch dishes and cheese and charcuterie boards. It will also sell bottles of small production wines from around the globe and offer a lunch menu. Grab-and-go pastries and a coffee menu are also planned.
“Every neighborhood deserves a local respite where locals can escape and center themselves over good company, great atmosphere, and serious food and wine,” Jennifer Bingham, who owns Cru with her husband, Torrey, said in a statement. “I’m excited to bring a neighborhood spot to the Westshore area.”
Brian Bern, senior director at Franklin Street in Tampa, represented Cru in the transaction.
