A.M. Wine Shoppe Closing in October

We’ve seen far more restaurant openings than closings of late, but sadly a neighborhood favorite is on the outs. A.M. Wine Shoppe, the Adams Morgan market from Cashion’s Eat Place owner Justin Abad and chef John Manolatos, is set to close its doors on Monday, October 7. Abad says the team was unable to reach an agreement on the lease’s renewal terms with their landlord, and decided to shutter the operation after three-plus years of selling wine, charcuterie, and deli sandwiches.

On the positive side, Abad and Manolatos are turning their attention toward opening a new concept. Much is still in the works, including a location, which Abad hopes to find in Adams Morgan or possibly Shaw. The ideal: a full-service neighborhood restaurant that’s more casual than Cashion’s but still focused on quality, seasonal ingredients.

“It’ll be the kind of place John or I would want to go and relax on a Tuesday night,” says Abad.

In the meantime, stop by the wine shop before it’s gone for good. Steep discounts are planned for all remaining items during the last week of business.
