Beer and wine

Welcome spring with wines and beers fit for the season.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
“Drink pink” is the rallying cry of spring for many wine lovers. The big reds of the fall and winter are retired in favor of lighterbodied wines for warmer weather, and the more patio-friendly the better. While white wines, especially sweeter ones, dominate the spring and summer, many wine lovers still prefer dry, red wines.

Drinking al fresco

With warmer weather comes opportunities to enjoy libations on rooftops and in the great outdoors.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
One of the first signs of spring every year is the increase in drinkers and diners spending beautiful afternoons and evenings on metro restaurant patios. As the number of restaurants in the metro continues to grow, so do the number of patio options, but very few provide spectacular views of the city while you enjoy your spring cocktails. Here are three hot spots worth visiting for more than just food and drinks.

What works: steaks, crab cakes and a wine list that could choke a donkey.
What needs work: a little less Sinatra on the stereo, but not much else.
Tip: With barrel-aged cocktails and an appetizer, the patio is a great spot to relax.
