• Complimentary cider flight when you dine at the restaurant

ANXO, whose name comes from a mythical Basque creature, opened in 2016 as Washington’s first cider house. Since then, this Truxton Circle establishment has gained quite a following. Executive Chef Alex Vallcorba, a Barcelona native, spent formative years cooking at Asador Etxebarri, a Michelin-starred restaurant in Basque country. Passionate about Basque cuisine, he lets his imagination run wild with pintxos, bite-sized offerings like salt-cod fritters, marinated mussels, and croquettes, as well as “bigger” small plates, like stuffed squid with caramelized onions or fried artichoke nestling a poached egg yolk--earning the restaurant a spot on the Washingtonian's Top 100 in DC List for 2018. The delicious ciders come from all over the world—as well as those that are made locally in ANXO's Brightwood Park production hub—and they have won ANXO a place on Wine Enthusiast’s list of “America’s 100 Best Wine Restaurants.”
