Jen Pelka, owner of San Francisco’s award-winning Champagne bar, will be opening The Riddler at 51 Bank Street at West Fourth Street in the West Village. The original in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley was named wine bar of the year in 2017, was a winner of a Wine Spectator “Grand Award,” and was all female-funded, as is its New York outpost. Jen, who will split her time between the two coasts, began her career in New York at Daniel. She earned a James Beard nomination, was in Forbes “30 under 30”, and founded Magnum PR drawing on her decades of experience in marketing, events and media relations. The design of the New York location was led by the women team at ROY, a California based design studio, and Richard Lewis, who worked on the new Pastis, is the architect. Bernstein Redo, P.C. is proud to be part of The Riddler team.
