Tutoni's gets liquor license after two years BYOB

New self-serve wine bar to open March 23

After nearly two years operating as a BYOB farm-to-table Italian restaurant, Tutoni’s in downtown York has received its liquor license.

“It’s official! After (literally) years in the making, we couldn’t be happier to announce that we have received our liquor license!” Tutoni’s announced on its Facebook page Wednesday, March 2.

This announcement comes about a month after co-owner Toni Calderone planned to open the restaurant’s new self-serve wine bar on the second floor of the restaurant at 108 N. George St. The process of getting a liquor license took a lot longer than expected, she said.

The TT Bar, as it’s come to be called, will host a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony at 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 23, according to a news release.

It seats 45 in the dining room and 25 in the bar on the second floor of the restaurant.

In addition to small plates, Italian craft beers and in-house made cocktails, the TT Bar also has four self-serve wine dispensers containing 46 bottles of wine from all over the world. To use them, guests will purchase a gift card, insert it into the machine and select a 1-oz., 3-oz., or full-glass pour.
