Formerly Park Central Tavern, the bones of 1640 Wine Bar and Kitchen originated in 2009. Entrepreneur Larry Coassin had always envisioned a neighborhood bar in his hometown of Hamden at which family and friends could share in great food, drink, and conversation. When the opportunity to renovate the property at 1640 Whitney avenue presented itself in 2008 he thought it was the perfect location; so he built one. In 2013 Polly Coassin Franzen took over the operation. 10 years in to Park Central’s journey Polly thought the neighborhood and the restaurant were both ready for a change, and the idea for 1640 Wine Bar and Kitchen was born. While still offering a great selection of craft beer and spirits, wine is at the heart of the new concept. Polly and her husband Jason reinvented Park Central to be a place that wines from all around the world could be shared at a neighborhood locale. 1640 Wine Bar and Kitchen pays homage to Larry’s love for great wines, while serving seasonally inspired fresh food rooted in Italian American culture.
