RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Wine will soon be flowing below the streets of Shockoe Slip.

French restaurant Bistro Bobette plans to convert the basement level of its East Cary Street building into a cellar wine shop and venue for private parties.

The new space will allow customers to pick up bottles of wine to go and will give co-owners Wendy Kalif and her husband and head chef Francis Devilliers room to hold events without crowding into the restaurant’s space.
