Sel et Vin: Oysters and Wine in Glen Park

Owners of Glen Park's Red and White wine bar have remade the place as Sel et Vin.
​This week Glen Park residents welcomed a new upscale oyster and wine bar to the neighborhood. How do we know? SFoodie was dining at Le P'tit Laurent across the street, when charismatic owner Laurent Legendre approached us to inform all his regular customers of this new venture, his partnership with Peter Bell and Juliana Flores, to transform their year-old Red and White wine bar and retail shop. After a month-long remodel, Sel et Vin ("salt and wine" in French) opened its doors on Tuesday, and it's been packed with customers ever since.

The bivalve menu features six West Coast varieties: Kumamoto, Tomales Bay, Miyagi, Fanny Bay, Hama, and Syster Point. Prices are moderate: $12-$14 per half-dozen, $22-$27 for a dozen, and $40-$52 for two dozen, all served with red wine-shallot vinegar and cocktail sauce. The rest of the appetizer-style menu lists an onion soup ($6.95), two salads (smoked trout and smoked salmon), a charcuterie plate ($15), cheese plate ($16), and a few snacks. The wine repertoire remains the same as before at Red and White, approximately $5-$15 per glass and $27-$76 per bottle.

Now open:
Sel et Vin: 678 Chenery (at Diamond), 333-2200. Open Tue.-Thu. and Sun., 5:30-10 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 5:30 p.m.-1 a.m.; closed Mon. Hours subject to change, depending on demand.

The poor local producers that were royally ripped off have left it to karma.This place is shut down!  In my opinion this was bound to happen, you can't sh*t all over the place and think you will never step in it.  It closed about 3 weeks ago, with a phony sign on the door, maybe for the other vendors to not come after them.

yea, too bad Julian and Peter are straight up thieves. They bought $5000 worth of wine from 4 small local producers, sold the wine at a profit, and then refused to pay for it. They won't return calls, emails, letters, you name it, they refuse to even set up a lenient payment plan. I strongly suggest you don't support these people because the are crooks and the word needs to get out that they are thieves. Why do people think it's fair to other small local business to buy thier product on credit, sell it at a profit, and then not pay for it?
