Raleigh, N.C. — Taste, a cozy restaurant known for its wine bar and delectable small plates, announced Wednesday its plans to open a second Raleigh location.
The new Taste is expected to open in May at 1912 Bernard Street, where the Cave 1912 restaurant is currently located.
"The second location will offer a laid-back atmosphere in a neighborhood establishment, similar to the original location [near Lake Boone Trail]," said owners. "There will be a similar menu of small plates designed to pair perfectly with carefully selected wines."
Seasonal selections will always be available at Taste in addition to small plate favorites like seared pistachio crusted ahi tuna, chopped angus beef sliders and roasted beets. Executive Chef Scott Phillips will also be crafting new items like shrimp tacos with housemade tortillas.
Both Taste locations are owned by JMR Kitchens, a family-owned restaurant group that also operates more. kitchen & wine bar and the Oak kitchen & bourbon bar.
