Britt-Marie’s Wine Bar & Restaurant took its namesake (1981) from Chef Britt-Marie Pazdirek. Originally “The Bacchanal” (1972-1982) the wine bar was established as a place “by and for women.” When Britt-Marie took over the space, she created a menu that featured her native Scandinavian dishes as well as Eastern European cuisine. In 1990 Chef Arthur Morfidis added Mediterranean dishes to the Britt-Marie’s menu with family recipes from his motherland of Greece.
