ANXO Sighting No. 2, a Cider Pairing Dinner at Boundary Road, August 17th


From a press release:

What: ANXO, DC’s first cidery and pintxos bar opening in Truxton Circle in late 2015, presents diners with a taste of what’s to come at ANXO Sighting No. 2, a four-course dinner event at Boundary Road on Monday, August 17th, 2015. This follows July’s first ANXO Sighting event at the Dolcezza Gelato Factory, which sold out in less than two days.

ANXO is the child of five founders: Managing Partners Sam Fitz and Rachel Fitz, Executive Chef Brad Walker, Beverage Manager Tim Prendergast and Cooper Sheehan. The team focuses on strong relationships with its cidermakers, both locally and internationally, yielding a highly curated selection of cider. Its also home to DC’s first recipients of the Certified Cicerone® title (Fitz and Prendergast), and the fermentation process of ANXO’s house-made cider will result in an incredibly unique Mid-Atlantic cider. Executive Chef Brad Walker (of Boundary Road) “will honor the Basque culinary traditions of honesty, simplicity, and quality by showcasing local producers’ best efforts.” Chef Walker will be joined in the kitchen by Barcelona-born local chef Alex Vallcorba, currently at Obelisk and formerly at Asador Etxebarri, San Pellegrino’s No. 13 restaurant in the world.

The night will begin with a pintxos hour with assorted fare such as Gilda (olive, guindilla pepper and anchovy)and Peperonata, all offered with a welcome cocktail and unlimited Basque and Austurian cider pours.

The four-course family-style menu features items such as Mixed Lamb Barbecue with Sausages and Charred Greens, and Olive Oil Poached Lobster Mushroom with Great Northern Beans. Each course is paired with a different cider. As ANXO works with local farmers, fishermen, ranchers and of course mother nature, all ingredients are subject to availability and reality.

  • Did anyone go to the first one? Is it worth the very high price?

  • AXNO questions, and I shall tell ye no lies.

  • I am highly suspect of the “late 2015” opening date for this place on 3rd and Florida. I live down the street and have seen little evidence of construction activity going on there. You have to figure that a building that’s been vacant for years needs some fairly significant upgrades to house a cidery. If this does come to fruition, expect an opening date in 2016 at the earliest.
