What Should Replace Vin Antico?

What would you like to see pop up in Vin Antico’s former space? Share your vacancy visions with us in the comments below!

While we still don’t have any additional details about why Vin Antico abruptly closed last month, we’re ready to move on and start hoping for the vacancy to be filled. 

Signs on the front windows advertise an “equipped restaurant and building for sale.” The 4,400-square-foot building is listed for around $1.5 million. The second floor of the building is zoned residential and contains a remodeled one-bedroom apartment as well as three spaces that could be rented out as offices, according to an online listing.

Other signs on Vin Antico’s doors direct patrons to check out the new Odalisque Café down the street. (By the way — if you’ve been to Odalisque make sure you write a review for that new restaurant.)

San Rafael has a decent number of quality restaurants, but what’s missing that’s right for the Vin Antico spot? A trendy farm-to-table restaurant? Another wine bar? A new Spanish tapas restaurant to replace Sabor of Spain, which closed in September 2012?

What elements would a restaurant need to survive downtown?

An upscale Mexican restaurant. Not beans & rice, but interesting, authentic dishes!

Yum! I like this idea, especially if it had some exotic molé options!

A wine bar would be great! With small plates and local organic meats and produce.

How about a bar called Cheers. How about a Bar named Cheers.
