The revelry is near

Reveler’s Hour, the encore restaurant and wine bar from the trio behind top-rated Tail Up Goat in Adams Morgan, will reportedly be ready to start serving a pasta-heavy menu by the end of the year. Washington City Paper reports that chef Jon Sybert, service director Jill Tyler, and beverage director Bill Jensen are planning a December opening for their second business, located nearby at 1777 Columbia Road NW.

Where Tail Up Goat has evolved into more of a special occasion place, the owners want want Reveler’s Hour to be more of an affordable, everyday option. Sybert’s farm-dependent Mediterranean menu will include six to eight pastas per night. Right now he’s serving corn and taleggio ravioli, ricotta cavatelli, and a witch’s hat pasta with pork ragu at Tail Up Goat. Sybert and Co. will also have a wood-burning grill to play with, WCP reports. Jensen will have 50 to 60 wines by the glass to span from “avant-garde” to “old fashioned and classic.”

Since the three partners, all alumni of Komi and Little Serow, opened Tail Up Goat in 2016, the spot has developed a reputation as an industry favorite for its attention-stealing toasts and exemplary service. Eater D.C. named it Restaurant of the Year in 2016, the Washington Post gave it a rare three-star review, and Michelin has awarded it one star on its D.C. guide. [WCP]
