Mountain View wine bar Le Plonc opens

Uploaded: Mar 20, 2018

A new wine bar has opened on Castro Street in downtown Mountain View: Le Plonc, the passion project of a veteran of the San Francisco bar scene.

Le Plonc officially opened at 331 Castro St. on Monday, per social media posts.

Kristian Cosentino, owner of Dirty Water and The Rusted Mule in San Francisco, opened Le Plonc to serve high-quality, unusual wines at affordable prices. He plans to open two more outposts in San Francisco and a third in an undisclosed location.

A wine list posted on Yelp shows a range of sparkling, white and red wine — all priced at $7 per glass or $30 for a bottle.

A pricier "premium" wine list features bottles from $125 to $540.

Le Plonc also serves a handful of draft beers for $7 each.

The food menu includes small bites such as oysters, cheese, charcuterie and tartines. Larger dishes include halibut with summer squash and asparagus; quail legs with roasted garlic potatoes; and bone marrow with garlic toast.

Le Plonc is open for lunch and dinner from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
