THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Barrel Room at Two40 South Restaurant Review

: Located in trendy downtown Brea, this darkly elegant, bistro-style venue named after its address boasts a wine vault of nearly 12,000 wines; a unique 32-bottle self-serve wine-pouring system; opportunities for barrel tastings; and several sommeliers on staff. Executive chef Marc Boussarie matches the wine program with a menu featuring brick-oven pizzas and contemporary cuisine. In addition to lunch and dinner, Two 40 offers a bar menu of small plates as well as Sunday brunch.
