Truffles and Bacon Café, chef Jacqueline Lim’s tiny, delicious diner that won us over last year, is about to be much more accessible. Initially located inside an antique market near Sunset Park, the restaurant is moving into a storefront at 8872 S. Eastern Ave., just off the Beltway, and should open in mid-February. If you haven’t tasted the bruschetta sampler or the French toast bread pudding, get ready.
Wine-centric events abound in the coming weeks. Aureole is pairing with Darioush for a wine dinner February 5 ($225, 702-632-7401); PBS’ annual Splendor in the Glass tasting event features a guest appearance by chef Hubert Keller on February 7 at Westgate ($85-$100, 702-799-1010); and Honey Salt’s Farm Table dinner series continues February 9 with a spotlight on Gary Farrell Vineyards ($45-$70, 702-445-6100).
For non-grape juice needs, turn to the Juice Standard, which will open its second local store this spring in Green Valley at 2530 St. Rose Parkway. It’ll serve specialty cold-pressed, organic, signature juice blends just like the original shop at 4555 S. Fort Apache Road.
