How Chef Ron Yan transformed the menu at Parcelle Wine Bar from popup to brick-and-mortar restaurant

The New York City wine bar attracts a young crowd to sip, snack and stay for dinner, thanks to an inventive menu.

As executive chef of Parcelle Wine Bar on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Ron Yan has created a menu that balances playfulness with skilled technique. During the pandemic, Yan partnered with seasoned restaurateur and wine retailer Grant Reynolds to launch a popup. The success of that venture evolved into the current brick-and-mortar restaurant, opened in 2022.
