Georgetown's newest wine bar aims to focus on flights, and the row house they're served in has been made airy and inviting. ENO wine bar
is a national chain with locations in San Francisco and Chicago, among other cities, and it's planted its latest flag at 2810 Pennsylvania Ave. NW in a former clothing store next to the Four Seasons Georgetown Hotel.
The two-story, 72-seat bar features eight wines on tap, and many more by the bottle and glass, with a focus on local Virginia wineries. The restaurant's wine cellar can hold more than 2,000 bottles at a time. Prices will average around $9 for a glass, and there will be plenty of bottle offerings under $50.
ENO is planning to focus on flights, but not just of wine -- they'll also be offering cheese, chocolate, and charcuterie, all from local providers like D.C.'s Stachowski’s
, Virginia's Gearhart's,
and Maryland's Firefly Farms
. There will be a few prepared dishes, like deviled eggs, grilled sandwiches, and bruschetta -- which, yes, comes in flights. For those who aren't very wine-inclined, ENO will offer some local brews and ciders, including DC Brau.
