As if wine, cheese, and paired meats weren’t enough of a reason to go check out Arlington’s newest bar…how about the owner quotes Reese Witherspoon from “Sweet Home Alabama” on their website? (If you haven’t yet seen this movie – go see it!) But I digress.
Screwtop entered the Clarendon scene in December 2009, but it was so busy when it first opened, I didn’t get a chance to go back to check it out until now, but i’m really glad I did.
The small restaurant/bar features wine by the bottle, glass, and flight, as well as craft beers. They also have a collection of cheeses & charcuterie, in addition to some other tasty treats. Here’s a link to the full menu for January.
A woman after my own heart, the owner – Wendy Buckley, a self-professed workaholic, has great taste in wine and decoration..and really, anyone who decides to put a Wine bar 3 blocks from where I live is already a friend for life.
