Postino hasn’t opened yet, but there’s already been a notable change to the decor at the Arizona-based wine cafe chain’s first Texas location. Gone from the construction fencing outside the restaurant’s patio are the signs pictured at top that read, “DRINKING WINE AT LUNCH IS NOT A CRIME.” In their place, new banners featuring only Postino’s name and social media handle have appeared. The photo above views them from the west side of the Heights Mercantile development at the corner of 7th St. and Yale.
Here’s another look at the current fence abutting Rye 51’s storefront on 7th St.:
A view from Yale shows 2 new 3D signs hung up on the beam above the patio:
- Previously on Swamplot: Day-Drinker Chain from Arizona Nearly Ready for Its Debut in Heights Mercantile; Bungalow Full of Weird Ice Cream Flavors Now Open on Heights Blvd.; A Local Foods Locale for Heights Mercantile; Heights Blvd. Trees Now Dressed to Impress Along Heights Mercantile Construction Site; Where Cloud 10 and All Those Extra Parking Spaces Will Fit Into Heights Mercantile; No Parking Variance for Heights Mercantile Retail Redo on 7th and Yale; Here’s Heights Mercantile, Carved Out of the Former Pappas Warehouse Facility at Yale and 7th St.

Considering all of the accidents and congestion on Yale near that intersection, that was a smart move. I understand their original intent but it still comes off as “come get drunk during the day.” The Heights wants no part of the Washington Ave mentality. Looking forward to trying this place.
