About

Bin 26 Enoteca is a Beacon Hill neighborhood restaurant with a seasonally driven menu and wine list. Bin 26 Enoteca boasts an international wine list with over sixty wines by glass and over two hundred wines by bottles. Guests can simply drop in for an informal dish of pasta or more formal, multi-course, haute cuisine.

WHAT IS ENOTECA & WHY BIN 26?

En-oh-TECK-a, a common term used mostly in Italy, refers to a place where one can find simple foods to accompany the wines served there. At Bin 26 Enoteca, we offer a menu designed for snacking and sharing, or a full meal. And oh boy, do we have a wine list too.

“Bin”, followed by a number, is a wine term for the physical location of where the bottle is located in the wine cellar. In this case, 26 Charles Street is the Bin in which our restaurant is located.

As part of our mission, we vow to support small family-run farms in New England and around the world. As a result, we use artisinal cured meats, imported cheeses, fresh seafood and vegetables – especially from around New England when possible.

FOUNDERS/PROPRIETORS

Casual but refined is the objective of Bin 26 Enoteca’s founders, the brother/sister team of Chef Azita Bina-Seibel and Babak Bina. They continue to operate their internationally acclaimed restaurant “Lala Rokh On Beacon Hill,” which they have owned and operated since 1995.

ARCHITECTURALLY SPEAKING

The world renowned firm of office da designed Bin 26 Enoteca. Assisting in this project were the firms of Fairbank Design, Collaborative Lighting and Delta Design and Construction. In the words of Nader Tehrani of office da “Azita and Babak wanted to create a truly unique food and wine experience. So we used material related to wine and wine making to achieve this. The result is a space that places you somewhere hip in Italy…”
