Sonoma Cellars

Californian in Alexandria

Drinking California wines (particularly those from Napa and Sonoma) is de rigueur at this West Coast outpost. Duck in for a glass of chardonnay and a cheese and charcuterie plate ($18 to $22), or settle in for the evening to graze on tacos, quesadillas, burgers and salads piled with sun-drenched produce. In warmer weather, most action occurs in the rear courtyard.
