What: ANXO, DC’s first cidery and pintxos bar opening in Truxton Circle in late 2015, presents diners with a taste of what’s to come at ANXO Sighting, a four-course dinner event at the Dolcezza Gelato Factory on Monday, July 27th, 2015.
ANXO is the child of five founders including Managing Partners Sam Fitz and Rachel Fitz. The team focuses on strong relationships with its cidermakers, both locally and internationally, yielding a highly curated selection of cider. Its also home to DC’s first recipients of the Certified Cicerone® title (Sam Fitz and beverage manager Tim Prendergast), and the fermentation process of ANXO’s house-made cider will result in an incredibly unique Mid-Atlantic cider. Executive Chef Brad Walker (of Boundary Road) “will honor the Basque culinary traditions of honesty, simplicity, and quality by showcasing local producers’ best efforts.”
The night will begin with a patio pintxos hour with assorted fare such as Bev Eggleston’s Vir-Scuitto with Apricots, Boquerone and Smoked Bluefish, and Porcini and Royal Trumpet Mushrooms with Herb Salt and Garlic Puree, all offered with a welcome cocktail and pour of cider.
The four-course family-style menu features items such as a Ciderhouse Ribeye, Grilled Octopus with Espelette, and a dessert collaboration between ANXO and Dolcezza Gelato’s Robb Duncan. Each courses is paired with a cider from a different region of the world.
