Here's Where You'll Be Drinking in D.C. This Fall

With a new season comes new restaurants and bars to try – check out these upcoming Fall openings on our list of spots to hit.

Calle Cinco
Spanish-style tapas and cocktails are coming to the Mount Vernon Triangle area mid-September. From the Schlow Restaurant Group comes Calle Cinco, popping up in the space that crudo bar, Conosci, used to occupy (which is moving to another location yet to be determined). Guests can expect traditional tapas dishes including papas bravas and churros dipped in fudge as well some different takes on classics like the croquetas de paella. The wine list will feature Spanish wines exclusively, in addition to sherry cocktails, sangrias and gin and tonics. Opening: September 12. (465 K St, NW)
 
Calico
Coming to Blagden Alley in Shaw, the team behind The Fainting Goat and Tiger Fork will debut Calico – where the main attraction lays in the restaurant’s outdoor dining space, to be decorated with an assortment of lights, an array of vegetation and an actual greenhouse. The menu will lean on the casual side, reminiscent of a backyard bbq with a seafood bent – items will include corn on the cob, fried clams, crab dip and more. Expected to open later this month. (50 Blagden Alley, NW)
 
When the rooftop bar of Rito Loco opens later this week, be ready to walk into a tropical oasis. The 1,100 square foot roof deck in Shaw will serve up Latin flavors with a focus on seafood - think ceviches, paellas, and mussels. For drinks, expect a taste of the Caribbean (mezcal margaritas, caipirinhas) with cocktails made using homemade simple syrups. Opening September 8. (606 Florida Ave, NW)
 
Supra
Shaw will welcome DC’s first Georgian restaurant this fall. Supra’s menu will feature authentic Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine like khachapuri, vegetable-centric small plates and other dishes highlighting fresh meats, breads and cheeses. Georgian wine will feature prominently on the drink menu as will traditional liqueurs of the region. Opening later this fall. (1205 11th St, NW)
 
The Wharf
When the Wharf opens in October, foodies can expect to see the first wave of restaurants opening their doors with more to come in Spring 2018. Anticipated openings include the fourth location of Hank’s Oyster Bar; Del Mar – a Spanish-focused spot from Fabio Trabocchi of Fiola, Fiola Mare and Casa Luca; South East Asian food from Kaliwa; and The Brighton, a two-story bar from the owners of the popular U Street spot The Brixton, among others. Well known and local chains including Shake Shack, Taylor Gourmet, and Dolcezza are slated to open next month as well. (1100 Maine Ave, SW)
