CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF GOOD FOOD, WINE & FRIENDS IN THE HEART OF ALEXANDRIA'S DEL RAY NEIGHBORHOOD

The Evening Star is a rollicking neighborhood gem located in the heart of Del Ray, and just a stone’s throw from both Alexandria’s Old Town and Washington DC. Opened in 1997, Evening Star is well known for its friendly vibe and convivial setting and continues to shine with a fiercely loyal crowd. Led by executive chef Jonathan Till, the Star combines gracious hospitality with a seasonal American menu, much of which features produce grown on the rooftop garden and by local farmers throughout the region. Fun, funky and always delicious, the Evening Star is your neighborhood place.

THE FRONT PORCH

As most of you know by now, we have a swell little outdoor patio on which to enjoy early evening drinks served alongside a terrific menu tailored for outdoor fun. And as we ease into fall, we’re looking forward to breaking out the heaters and table-side fire pits to keep it all nice and cozy. So come join us for a post-work respite al fresco, if only for Edith’s famous Bourbon Slushies! The Front Porch is open daily (weather permitting) beginning at 5 o’clock and 4 o’clock on weekends.

PLANET WINE SHOP

Planet Wine is located next door to the Evening Star and serves and the neighborhood’s go-to spot for their collection of nearly 1500 wine labels and equally head-spinning number of craft beers on offer. But did you know the shop also serves as the restaurant’s wine list? That’s right, you can browse the shop (or check out the handy-dandy list) and select anything you’d like to accompany your dinner – for just a smidge above retail. So c’mon out wine lovers, and enjoy! And be sure to pop into the shop and ask Joe what’s new – he’s always got
something fun to show off.
