Mrs. K's Toll House Restaurant

A Vintage Pour

Mrs. K’s Toll House Restaurant, a Silver Spring landmark since the early 1900s, just opened The Wine Press, a temperature-controlled cellar that spotlights a wine list of 600 labels and 64 wines by the glass. The brainchild of general manager Spiro Gioldasis, the space recalls an Old World cave complete with exposed native stone, vintage brick floors and iron details. The Wine Press serves lunch and dinner and hosts special wine dinners every other Wednesday. 9201 Colesville Road, Silver Spring, MD; www.mrsks.comNews Bite
Wolfgang Puck is the latest celebrity chef to tip his toque to Washington. The Source brings Puck’s fare to DC under the direction of executive chef Scott Drewno. The modern, three-level restaurant located in the Newseum serves a casual lounge menu (prime beef sliders, wood-fired pizzas) on the ground floor and Asian-inspired cuisine using seasonal organic ingredients upstairs.

Don’t miss the apple tarte tatin with caramel for dessert. 2941 Fairview Park Drive, Falls Church, VA; www.2941.com
