Behold Glover Park's newest bistro Slate Wine Bar, which opened over the weekend in the former Kitchen space. As owner and first-time restaurateur Elizabeth Banker told Eater back in July, the wine bar will feature both Old and New World wines, emphasizing small producers with sustainable farming practices. A long list reveals a selection of wines by the glass and bottle, plus craft beers on draft and by the bottle, including some large-format beers.
Meanwhile, the bistro side of Slate involves a menu that goes beyond the standard selection of cheeses with a few sampler plates and snacks that include marcona almonds, chocolate nibs, wasabi peas and edamame. There's a selection of soups, salads and sandwiches, too, plus entrees to include roast chicken, steak-frites, Cajun chicken and chorizo pasta and more. General manager Mark Krieger tells Eater that the full menu is already available, though the second floor is drinks only. Slate Wine Bar is closed Mondays, but opens at 4 p.m. the rest of the week.
