The Wine Program
This Southeast Asian restaurant isn’t shy when it comes to exotic ingredients or heat levels. The program’s goal is to offer wines that play and pair well with these intense flavors. About 95 percent of the 120-label list is priced under $100, with 15 wines by the glass. Promoting a sense of adventure, the wines are sourced from all over the world, from the restaurant’s backyard in Virginia to Macedonia, Chile and Serbia. Varieties range from Pigato to Petit Manseng and Grignolino to Riesling. The restaurant also features meads and ciders alongside an eclectic sparkling wine list.

Favorite Dish
“Our grilled, funky, fermented, garlicky housemade northern Thai isaan sausage is a great way to start a meal here,” says Max Kuller, the wine director. “Pairing it with Vigneto Saetti’s 2012 Rosato dell’Emilia from Emilia-Romagna is a wonderful idea. This rosé Lambrusco is on the earthy, dry and delicate side, but still has enough sour, cherry-laden punchy fruit and effervescence to be the perfect match for the dish.”

Corkage Policy
The restaurant charges $30 per bottle.
