America Eats Tavern Showcases VA Wines

I remember eating at (the first) America Eats Tavern – Jose Andres’ pop-up restaurant that was created to accompany the “What’s Cooking, Uncle Sam?” exhibit at the National Archives several years ago. Like many others, I loved learning about the history of many of our dishes and truly appreciated the thought and effort that went into the restaurant (not to mention the delicious food). The restaurant has been reborn, opened earlier this summer, and I was thrilled to visit its new location in the Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner for a Virginia wine tasting on Wednesday, August 20.
