For the last 11 years, David Bueno’s expertise has been an asset to DC restaurants such as Taberna Del Alabardero and Cafe Milano. Now partner in Local 16, Bueno, a well-regarded DC sommelier, is instilling his love of wine in this U Street institution.
Starting in March, every Monday for 16 weeks Local 16 will offer a bottle of wine for $16. “We want to make good wine affordable,” explains Bueno. He plans to hand pick 16 interesting blends to feature that are not currently on the menu.
Also Local 16 will begin hosting wine tastings with local wine shops such as Ansonia Wines. The restaurant will offer complimentary appetizers. The first tasting will be held, Tuesday, March 29 and will be free and open to customers 21+.
Local 16 is located at 1602 U St, NW
