Lounge set to open this summer
by Joshua Maloni
The tavern at 490 Center St., adjacent to Casa Antica, has new operators and is expected to open this summer in the Village of Lewiston. Partners Kurt Minervino, John DiMino and Christopher Salada are converting the former bar into an upscale lounge complete with high-end wines, imported beers, music and a special menu courtesy of their restaurant neighbor.
Minervino said the trio hopes to open Hops-N-Vines in June, pending receipt of a liquor license.
