New Wine Dive & Kitchen to open in former 4 Olives.

Manhattan, KS – There wasn’t much time wasted in the downtown scene with the two former businesses, 4 Olives and 4 Cakes. The 4 Cakes equipment was purchased and will be opening in a different location under Pip’s Bake Shoppe, owned by Hannah Robinson.

4 OLIVES HOWEVER, WILL BE TRANSFORMING INTO A NEW BUSINESS TAGGED, “WINE DIVE & KITCHEN,” OPENING THIS SEPTEMBER.

Two brothers, Brad and Brent Steven, are the owners who also have the Wine Dive and the Hill Bar and Grill in College Hill of Wichita.

“It was basically just a deal we couldn’t pass up,” Brent Steven says.

“We really want to focus on getting as much local ingredients as possible,” Brad Steven says. “There’s some great bakeries up there. There’s some great coffee shops up there.”

Brad Steven says it’s a fairly turnkey operation, because they’re opening where 4 Olives Wine Bar used to be in downtown Manhattan at 121 S. Fourth St.

“We were looking at the business while they were open,” Brent Steven says.

The longtime 4 Olives closed this spring and are buying the inventory of wine carried as well. The 4 Olives owner “did a very good job of sourcing wines that are hard to get. The cool thing is there will be a big difference in what’s offered by the bottle.”

“We’re going to be adding on a patio space as well,” Brent Steven says.

Wine Spectator once again awarded Wichita’s Wine Dive its Award of Excellence with a two-glass distinction and sommelier Brad Steven says he wants the new Wine Dive & Kitchen to have a two-glass rating as well. He says it’s something 4 Olives once had.
