Ed. Note: Before District 2 Bar & Grille this space was Alliance Tavern and Enology Wine Bar before that and Zebra Lounge before that.

A reader reports:

“From now through Friday, Cleveland Park Wine & Spirits is hosting wine tastings that feature women wine makers, importers and distributors. The owner, Tony, is a neighborhood institution and real lovable quirk. His idea is to be an antidote to the negative political climate in the city.

I visited and picked up a delicious French red to tide me through the inauguration from Jane Reeves, VP of Silver Spring wine importer Comete Wines. It’s made by a woman named Clotilde Davenne. (photo above)

On the 18th from 5:30-8:30pm, all 6 featured women will be pouring 24 different wines. Sounds like a great time!”

Last week I mentioned that Dolan Uyghur Restaurant would be replacing Sorriso outside the Cleveland Park metro. And they’ve opened to very positive reviews already from the Cleveland Park listserv:

“We were told that the hand-pulled and cut noodles were special to Xinjiang, so that’s what we had. The noodles had very nice texture, the family was very welcoming and excited.”


“It was amazing! The noodles were fantastic, to say the least.”

Check out their menu in progress here.

Their website gives some background on Uyghur Cuisine:

“Uyghurs are from northwest China but their culture and language are more familiar to the indigenous population of central Asia. These countries would include Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan. Due to their historic link to neighboring countries such as Uzbekistan, Russia, and Chinese provinces, Uyghur food is well known throughout central Asia and China.

The Uyghur cuisine commonly features the influences of the West and East, antiquity and the present, great skill, imagination, beauty and harmony of taste.

Common ingredients that can be found in many Uyghur meals are lamb, beef, chicken, tomatoes, carrots, peppers, onions, celeries, and eggplant. (more…)
