O's Food and Wine Bar, the small-plates-and-tapas specialist, has closed. It's expected to be succeeded in about two weeks by Bin 107.

Dino Vlacich, whose resume includes the former Mio in Roslyn, will be the chef at the soon-to-be eatery. The menu for Bin 107 hasn't been finalized. A guess: plenty of wine will be poured to go with the fare.

O's earned high ratings for its imaginative take on traditional dishes, offering choices that ranged from truffled risotto lollipops to bison tostadas with guacamole. The restaurant also prepared fine regional, continental entrees. O's was the heir to Oscar's of St. James at 552 Old Country Rd. Philippe Corbet, the chef at O's, isn't associated with Bin 107.
