Tel'Veh Cafe & Wine Bar Coming to Capitol Hill
Winos, take note: the team behind Dupont Circle’s Agora has selected May 21 for the launch of their new neighborhood wine bar Tel’Veh, an eclectic Mediterranean cafe in the Convention Center corridor. The 60-seat restaurant will sport a rotating list of hundreds of varietals from around the world, including an eye-popping 48 by the glass ($7–$12).
The variety of single-serving pours is enabled by the newly installed Vinotemp cruvinet system, a temperature- and humidity-controlled pouring mechanism that preserves open bottles with pressurized nitrogen gas. In addition to the glass list, 300 different bottles organized as Old World or New World will be offered, ranging from $30 all the way up to $325.
Eats will come from chef Chassan Jarrouj, also of Agora, who was born in Lebanon and will serve a menu of Mediterranean small plates and fresh seafood. Look for dishes like watermelon and feta salad; prosciutto sandwich with fresh mozzarella and fig jam; and a selection of cheese and charcuterie plates that will complement the vino selection.
A swooping granite bar seats a dozen folks, and an outdoor patio provides views of Capitol Hill. The cafe part of the operation will serve breakfast and lunch daily from 7 AM–3 PM, while the wine bar will be open nightly from 5:30 PM–2 AM (the kitchen closes at midnight).
