Plano food hall Legacy Hall has made some changes that include a reconceived wine bar and a new eatery featuring a menu with sliders and burgers.

The wine bar formerly known as Detour is now called Blush Wine Bar. Changes include:

  • more wines
  • the addition of a sommelier
  • a policy of 21 and over only

One might presume that a wine bar would be restricted to 21 and over, but the space has been closed off by a barrier to prevent the tiny rug rats from running in and out of the space.

They've also bolstered the selection of wines to more than 80 options, which a release says have been carefully selected by Brian Newman, their new in-house level-two sommelier, who will provide wine education and recommendations.

The overall mission is to make the space more intimate and take the wine program more seriously.

Their second initiative is High Bar Kitchen & Tap, a full-service kitchen with additional seating on the third floor by the Unlawful Assembly Brewing Co. space. It takes up a spot that was previously occupied by Monkey King Noodle, which seems to have closed quietly at the end of 2018, if you believe Yelp; haven't heard a peep about that.

According to company VP David Daniels, High Bar will bring a comfortable space to relax and watch your favorite game with the ease of full-service dining.

Its menu consists of pub fare developed by Executive Chef John Franke to pair with Unlawful Assembly Brewing Co.’s extensive draft selection.

Dishes include boneless wings tossed in choice of Buffalo hot, lemon pepper, or Thai sweet chili sauce; or nachos in choice of chicken or beef.

Main plates include Kobe sliders with fries, meatball sub with fries, or a chicken chopped salad; everything's under $10.
