New wine bar/wine shop coming to Dilworth

Foxcroft Wine Co., a wine shop and wine bar, plans a second location in Dilworth, and hopes to open in June or July, says owner Conrad Hunter.

Foxcroft (which used to be called the Wine Shop at Foxcroft) opened in 2004 at 7824 Fairview Road. Its second site will go into a remodeled space in the Kenilworth Commons shopping center on East Boulevard, Hunter says, with design by Eric Boyd and Tom Long from Reaching Quiet Design (which has done Stagioni, 5Church, Nikko's and more), and the architect is Brian Conroy of Citizen Design.

Hunter says he'll keep the format and feel of the SouthPark original, with room for about 9,000 bottles for retail.

Chef Justin Solomon's menu will remain a blend of New American and comfort food (as at the original), but this will add a wood-fired brick oven, and some dishes Solomon did in his time in the Pacific Northwest and at Customshop in Charlotte. There'll also be about 40 wines by the glass.

Here's a peek at the menu in progress:
