PORTLAND, Ore. (July 28, 2015) – SE Wine Collective has doubled their seating, placing new seats and tables both in the cellar and outside as well as added festive outdoor lighting. Two eight-top high wood community tables have been added to the cellar space, adding 16 new seats inside. The patio now boasts 12 seats, with two two-tops featuring Adirondack rocking chairs and two new four-top tables. SE Wine Collective will now have room for 58 guests, almost doubling the original 30 person capacity.
Chef Althea Grey Potter has expanded the wine bar food menu by 30 percent as well. Visitors can now enjoy full meals of small and/or large plates that will change based on seasonality along with carefully curated wine selections.
“With the expansion of our wine offerings both from the Collective winemakers and our global and local inspiration wines, as well as the amazing additions to our menu by Chef Althea Grey Potter, we were seeing a continuous and steady growth in the number of wine lovers joining us each day,” says SE Wine Collective co-owner Kate Monroe. “Rather than seeing their names on a long waiting list for a table in the cozy wine bar, we decided to make an additional expansion, and increase our floorplan to accommodate the growing demand!”
