Casual Dining, Wine Bar

Part of The Riddler

We are a women-led team: our founder, 100% of our investors, and many members of our leadership team are women.

Our motto at The Riddler is “Hello, old friend.” It’s a line that is printed on our tables and menus, and a sentiment that guides what we do every day. We hope that when you visit us, you’ll feel like you’re settling in at a place you’ve always loved.

We have over 100 Champagnes by the bottle and dozens of sparkling wines by the glass to choose from: old and new, traditional classics and unusual discoveries, by the glass and by the bottle (or magnum or 9L). At the center of our space is an old wooden backbar that we’ve lined with a collection of vintage Champagne buckets and glassware that we’ve picked up at flea markets and estate sales over the last decade.

We’re a women-led team: we have 33 investors, all of whom are women, and our entire management team happens to be led by a bad-ass crew of women. We love serious wines but don’t take ourselves too seriously: we pair our Champagne with tater tot waffles, serve our caviar with potato chips, and offer free popcorn all day and all night.

When you’re in the neighborhood, we hope you’ll pull up a chair, tell us what you love to drink, and stay a while. We’ll see you soon at The Riddler. We’d love to be your home away from home.
