A New Baden barbecue restaurant announced Friday that it is adding a second location and expanding the menu and services at its flagship restaurant.

The new restaurant will be in Mount Vernon, according to a Facebook post by owner David Stidham. In addition, the New Baden location will be starting a delivery service to the surrounding area, and will be developing a line of artisan pizzas — some of which will feature smoked barbecue.

Stidham's post said there might be more Fine Swine locations coming.

"If things go well, it is our goal to open 3-5 more throughout the St. Louis region and then start the franchising process shortly thereafter," he wrote.
