We're consumed by - and consuming! - wine!
After opening in five other cities, City Winery finally has come to DC. It's 40,000 square-foot location in Petworth includes a huge, wine production facility, a restaurant, party space and 300-seat, live performance venue, all on four floors. Pretty cool! Hear about it from City Winery's winemaker, Pascal Valadier, beverage director, Vanessa Phillips and John O'Neill, talent buyer, while we sip great wines and get the 411 on acts coming to the venue, including Suzanne Vega, Joan Armatrading, Billy Squire, and many more.
Chef Frida Johansson has served as the Executive Chef of Sweden's Ambassador to the United States of America since May 2010. During that time, Frida has had the opportunity to cook for SUCH notables such as King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, Queen Silvia, and Prince Daniel as well as Vice President Joseph Biden, government ministers, Members of Congress, Nobel Laureates, the Washington Capitals, and more - Chef Frida joins us in studio with tastes and talk of life as an embassy chef.
And, speaking of Petworth ... Ruta del Vino is a Latin American wine bar with an awesome wine cellar filled with great tastes from across South and Central America (only). Justin Logan is in with the pours, and has with him chef Will Harner, whose ceviches and other small dishes are stirring up impressive reviews.
And, as always, Central Farm Markets' Mitch Berliner offers the 411 on what's fresh and wonderful at their three farmers' markets around town.
