From an email:

Slate Wine Bar + Bistro is excited to announce that we are joining the Glover Park community later this summer! We will be located at 2404 Wisconsin Avenue, formerly home to Kitchen 2404. Slate will be a neighborhood restaurant that is also a destination for wine lovers of all levels of knowledge and experience. Daily specials, pairing advice, and flights will be supplemented with a wide-range of educational and entertaining wine events, including winemaker dinners, tasting seminars, wine clubs, escorted trips to wine regions, and more. The Bistro menu will offer an array of snacks including cheese and charcuterie, along with heartier fare such as soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. The menu will change seasonally and will be supplemented by daily and weekly specials from the freshest local ingredients with the goal of complementing the wines. For non-wine lovers, we will have a great selection of craft beers and cocktails. Slate is a project by Wine Investment Group, LLC. Owner and Wine Director, Elizabeth Banker, and General Manager, Mark Krieger, look forward to welcoming you when we are ready to open our doors.

    Not a huge surprise that Kitchen closed. Can’t exactly put my finger on why it didn’t work for me but it didn’t. Hope the staff find other employment quickly.

    Biggest non-surprise of the year so far. Tom Sietsema sounded the death knell on this place back in 2009.


    Before Kitchen was Kitchen, it was a Peruvian concept restaurant called Ceviche. Same pretentious owner, Mauricio Fraga-Rosenfeld. I went on my birthday and ordered a drink. I was asked for ID, which I produced. My license expired on my birthday, and they wouldn’t accept it. On my birthday. Awesome service, guys. And the food sucked.

    Kitchen had decent food, but I went twice and the service was awful.

  • Wine bar fits great in the neighborhood. With the new pho place and the pub going into the old Town Hall (plus the new Town Hall) exciting things happening in GP. Hopefully the Wisconsin street scape project won’t kill these businesses.
