This is the start of our new series -  "Best of What's New" where we periodically explore new restaurants and wine bars that have opened in the last few months around the DC metro.

Our pick for this event is "Baby Wale", Tom Power's second project a Wine Bar with a casual vibe, offering a varied Wine list and small plates as the dining theme.

Tom Power's known for the elegant and sleek restaurant "Corduroy" keeps to his material theme, as "Wale" pertains to the smallest weave of corduroy and is meant to be “the opposite of Corduroy.”

The Food menu at "Baby Wale" carries the distinct signature of Power’s resume and includes dishes like the lumpia, the Filipino equivalent of spring rolls and mozzarella “porcupine” which uses a technique refined by the acclaimed chef Michel Richard, for whom Power cooked in Baltimore and Philadelphia. The spiky appetizer — shredded phyllo encasing buffalo mozzarella — is set on a plate with two bright sauces, one basil, the other tomato, both intriguing for their clarity.

The selection of Wines include fine picks of Old World Wines to pair with the varied Food flavors.

The Wine bar has an artistic, urban rustic ambiance with high ceilings, skylights, and splashes of color, from reds to turquoise.

    This Wine bar has a nice warm urban rustic setup and the appetizers were good, so was our overall service. This was yet another fine evening with a great bunch of people with interesting and varied conversations through the course of the evening ..

    We have had two last minute cancellations so if someone from the wait list would like to attend we do one open spot. Please reply to this comment if you would like to attend, given that it's very late to make plans ...

    Hi there! I'm excited to check out Baby Wale and meet you all. I may not be able to get there until 7:30pm. Will that pose a problem?

    • Rodolfo

      7:30 pm should be fine and we hope you can join the group for this event ..

      Great! see you then.

    All those that have RSVP'd, Please remember to update your RSVP if your plans of attending have changed as we have a large number of members on the wait list and late cancellations or no shows are not fair on those waiting on a spot.

    Looking forward to a fun evening as we set to explore this new Wine bar and to the start of our new series "Best of What's New" .

      Thanks Angela .. That's a good gesture and should your plans of attending change, I would like to put you back on the RSVP list.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
