579 Selby Then and Now
I wish I had spent more time and money at Il Vesco Vino to miss the place. I think I had a meal there at least twice. I always meant to go back and now it’s gone. I don’t remember anything about the food, but I loved the atmosphere. One night I climbed at least four winding sets of stairs to check out a really mellow jazz combo in the attic bar. I know it looks like a four story building from the outside, but I remember five flights of stairs. Last year 579 Selby became the home of Dr. Chocolate’s Chocolate Chateau, gift store, cafe, interpretive exhibit, hall of fame, and event space. I stepped in one night for a cup of coffee and tried a couple chocolates that looked like polished glass. I’ll be back soon enough. I just need to find a little more time and money.
