Britt-Marie’s Wine Bar & Restaurant took its namesake (1983) from Chef Britt-Marie Pazdirek. Originally "The Bacchanal" (1972-1982) the wine bar was established as a place "by and for women." When Britt-Marie took over the space, she created a menu that featured her native Scandinavian dishes as well as Eastern European cuisine. In 1990 Chef Arthur Morfidis added Mediterranean dishes to the Britt-Marie's menu with family recipes from his motherland of Greece.
Our dining experience is 'continental' in theme. Our rotating weekly wine list features five white and five red by the glass or bottle. The wine selection (for both white and red) features two California, two European and one Southern hemisphere.
Britt-Marie's intimate ambiance is a warm and casual as we continue our cultural legacy on Solano Avenue with great food & wine, a variety of special events and local social fundraisers.
