Zola Wine and Kitchen Now Open

Recently Star Restaurant Group, (one of D.C.'s leading restaurant development firms who also brought you Indigo Landing) Zola Wine and Kitchen. According to this Washington Business Journals article, it will be the site of a chef's test kitchen as well as a wine shop that will sell 6,000 wines. They will also be offering cooking classes during lunch!

I think this would be a really fun place to visit with out-of-town family or a fun activity for you and your bridal party. If you get to go, let me know how your visit went!

My husband and I went there last Friday for a really pricey dessert wine tasting. I thought, hey, with that price ($150/couple), it must be great! Omigod was I wrong. From the dimwitted instructor (who conducted the wine tasting using a PowerPoint presentation), to the dirty glasses and complete lack of any discussion of the wines, I was at a loss as to what I was paying for. The wines themselves didn't cost $150 per couple...and there was really nothing else of value provided. The plate of sweets that were provided at each table were never explained or paired with the wines. The instructor referred to every wine as "wonderful" with a "honey nose." She also served herself (often larger pours than the class members got) before the paying customers were even served! Just horrid. Save your hard-earned money.
