Jennifer and Todd Klein opened Wine and Roses in 2006 and quickly turned the Columbus Avenue bar into a mecca for oenophiles and celebrities such as Brooke Shields, Matthew Broderick and the stars of “Saturday Night Live.” Klein, a strikingly attractive blonde, threw herself into operating the eatery, whose 2,500-bottle cellar backs its motto, “Where everything revolves around the wine.” She was granted a 21.1 percent share of the ownership despite putting up only 0 in initial capital — while other investors kicked in up to 0,000 apiece, records state.
The e-mail provided by the Kleins, which purportedly was written to Jennifer by Gruen in 2008, said, “I don’t need Valium, or scotch, just need a good f- -k,” with a “smiley” icon afterward.
The Kleins also provided a 2008 e-mail written by them that they allege substantiates their claim that Gruen, while working as the wine bar’s chief financial officer, siphoned off money to cover supposed insurance payments for himself.
