Pushing the UES wine bar trend forward is Enoteca Di Leonardo, which is "coming soon" according to the sign outside of the 2nd Ave spot (between 81st and 82nd) pictured above. The bar seems to be attached to Leonardo da Vinco Restorante, the Italian restaurant to the left, which was closed for four days but was scheduled to be back open Thursday (it wasn't). A peak inside reveals Leonardo's tables stacked and overturned, things are a little chaotic. Facelift going on? What up?
