Chef Kia Damon is cooking a pop-up dinner at Winona’s in Williamsburg on Sunday April 4th, and Monday April 5th as part of Ediciones Project’s month-long residency at the restaurant. This marks the latest event for Chef Kia Damon’s Kia Feeds The People mutual aid project, which provides food and support to Black and QTPOC communities in Brooklyn. You can book a table ahead of time on Resy.
Two of the chefs who participated in Ursula’s queer pop-up series (Tony Ortiz and Zacarías González) recently started a month-long residency at Winona’s on the border of Bed-Stuy and Williamsburg. Their menu includes seasonal Mexican and Cuban food, as well as wine pairings from Amigxs - a collective of hospitality professionals working to fund emerging chefs. Follow Tony and Zacarias’s Ediciones Project for more updates on the residency, and make an indoor or outdoor reservation for the pop-up here.
“Natural wine bars don’t usually double as all-day restaurants serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner - but that’s what makes Winona’s especially useful. There are tons of wines available by the glass or by the bottle at this spot on the Williamsburg/Bed-Stuy border, including a mix of natural options from small producers based in New York, France, Mexico, Austria, Germany, Spain, and beyond. During a recent visit, I paired a refreshing gamay with Chef Kia Damon’s smoky gumbo and flaky biscuits during the Ediciones dinner pop-up, which is happening here every Sunday and Monday night. And between the comfortably heated patio, helpful wine descriptions via QR code, and top-notch Southern dishes including exceptional cheese grits, this exciting wine bar is quickly becoming my go-to for a night out with a few friends.”

This laid-back natural wine bar on the border of Williamsburg and Bed-Stuy is perfect for a first date spot whether you want to dip after thirty minutes, or linger for a casual dinner that might last a lifetime. Winona’s has a heated outdoor patio where you can stop by for a glass of natural wine or coffee any day of the week, but dinner is only served Thursday through Saturday. On Sunday and Monday nights, expect a rotating menu of seasonal Mexican and Cuban dishes from a weekly pop-up dinner series run by Ediciones, as well as wine pairings from Amigxs - a collective of hospitality professionals working to fund emerging chefs.
