It turns out D.C.'s first cider producer will have not one, but two locations in the city. The team behind ANXO Cidery & Pintxos Bar realized their Truxton Circle space wouldn't be big enough to produce the volume of cider they wanted, so now they've signed a lease for a second, larger property at 711 Kennedy St. NW.
The Brightwood Park outpost will not only be a hub for the bulk of cider production—it will also eventually have its own restaurant and bar. The locale will have a new name and concept, although it may also be a Basque-influenced. An ANXO catering operation will also work out of the space.
ANXO recently hired Barcelona native Alex Vallcorba, who has cooked in Basque country, as its chef de cuisine. He'll work under executive chef and partner Brad Walker (formerly of Boundary Road), who will oversee ANXO and develop the concept in Brightwood Park. The business' other partners include bar veterans Sam Fitz, Rachel Fitz, Tim Prendergast, and Cooper Sheehan.
