The Wine Thief coming to Mount Airy

Four Seasons alumnus Chris Simpson is one of the owners of a forthcoming bar-restaurant on Germantown.

The Wine Thief coming to Mount Airy


Four Seasons bartender Chris Simpson is one of the partners in The Wine Thief, a American comfort-fooder with a wine emphasis, coming to the old Bitar's space at 7152 Germantown Ave. in Mount Airy, just up the block from Earth Bread + Brewery. (The corporation name of The Thirsty Monk LLC led to recent blogosphere confusion over the trade name.)

Simpson, who says the menu will have a healthful, local-sourcing bent, is targeting May for the opening. 

As for the name. Ask any oenophile. It's not felonious (or even misdemeanor-ous) in origin.
