The owners of the Drifters Wife and Maine & Loire, a Portland restaurant and wine shop that specializes in natural wines, will close their current location and move into a larger adjacent space on Washington Avenue that once housed the restaurant Roustabout. The wine shop/restaurant, now at 63 Washington Ave., will move early next year into 59 Washington Ave.

The last dinner service in the old space will be held Dec. 30.

According to application filed with the city, the new restaurant and wine bar will have 44 seats and a 10-seat bar, a substantial step up from the current seating of 28 total. The restaurant will be open five days a week for dinner.

In 2016, the editors of Bon Appetit named Drifters Wife one of the 50 Best New Restaurants in America.
