At the time, we figured it might be from the folks running Brix Wine Shop on Avenue B. However, owner Beatriz Gutierrez told EVG contributor Stacie Joy that she was not behind this Brix.
Perhaps other people had the same thought. There's new signage now for Brick Wine Bar. (Thanks to EVG reader Fiona for the pic!)
Brick Wine Bar owner George Mercardo previously operated Barbarrio (2017-2019) on Lexington Avenue in East Harlem.
Brix/Brick takes the space from Oh La La Cafe, which closed last summer... and, previously, Cocoa Bar.
A recent post from the Brick Instagram account notes that they are opening "real soon."
