  • C'est Le Vin
    Tapas orbit groups, drawing conversation out into long afternoons measured in slowly drained bottles of wine. Chatter drifts toward the ornate paneled ceiling at C?est Le Vin, where the small-plate style of dining leans heavily on those Spanish traditions. Chefs sear spiced-steak kebabs, roast tilapia on planks, and broil artichokes with goat cheese and thyme, which can be eaten at tables or on comfy couches. Soft lighting illuminates a rotating display of artwork and glimmers off ranks of bottles brimming with the rich earthiness of garnacha and tempranillo grapes. Most nights of the week, entertainment may include writers reading their poetry, musicians strumming their guitars, and artists unveiling their work. Tango lessons introduce the dance?s lilting moves and provide a place where people with roses super glued to their mouths can fit in.

  • Nuevo Mexico Restaurante
    Though it’s far from the border, Nuevo Mexico Restaurante serves up dishes of traditional Mexican cuisine. The staff rolls seasoned pork or chicken burritos, stuffs taquitos with beef, or grills spinach and tucks it into quesadillas. One of the benefits of their location on the East Coast is the ability to ship in real blue crab from Maryland, granting chefs fresh ingredients for crab salads and enchiladas. One location’s decor unites rich wood accents with exposed red brick, a mural of a matador dodging a bull, and a bar that has three sides, like any argument between a husband and his wife with a crime-fighting alter-ego.

  • Blue Bee Cider
    By the time Blue Bee Cider's signature drink is ready in the spring, it's been three seasons in the making. The process begins in the fall and winter pressing season, when baskets upon baskets of Virginia apples, their ripe red skins shocked with gold, are crushed to loose their sweet juice. The juice lies dormant for the winter, undisturbed by the needless addition of sugar or water, slowly fermenting. Finally, come the break of spring, it takes on the fizzy character of carbonation and is bottled, ready to take its place on the shelves behind the tasting bar. Each of the three varieties takes on a different characteristic from its different blend of apples and ingredients, from the Charred Ordinary's dryness lent by heirloom apples, to the Harvest Ration's surprising kick supplied by fortification with brandy.
