A much anticipated Aquebogue restaurant will finally open the doors of its 180-year-old farmhouse to the public this week.
The Petulant Wino, owned by star chef Tom Schaudel and operated by his 30-year-old daughter Courtney, will serve dinner begining Thursday, June 5 at 4 p.m.
It will be open seven days a week for dinner and on weekends for lunch.
“It feels pretty amazing,” the younger Schaudel told Northforker during a tour of the new eatery. “It’s been a little bit of a whirlwind.”
The 28-seat restaurant, which features the older Schaudel’s artworks and a wine rack handcrafted by Courtney Schaudel’s boyfriend Kyle Cannon, will serve all Long Island beers and a wine list that is 50 percent local vintages.
“The menu is so much fun,” Courtney Schaudel said. “There is a large focus on small plates which is just under an appetizer size.”
Those offerings include tuna pizza ($14), marinated arctic char ($11) and chipotle braised duck tacos ($10).
The restaurant replaces Comtesse Therese Bistro which opened in 2010, but has been closed since January.
