Two Reston Startbucks stores are still in the mix to take part in the new “Starbucks Evenings” program, but the process is going to take a while, a Starbucks spokeswoman said.
In August, it was announced that Starbucks stores at South Lakes Village Center and North Point Village Center were among those nationwide selected to participate in the program, which offers beer, wine and “savory small plates” for customers.
Both Reston stores have liquor (beer and wine) license applications pending with the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control board.
“We’re in the very early stages of considering Reston for the Evenings menu,” a Starbucks spokeswoman said in an email. “It’s a long and thoughtful process and the permit filing is just one of many steps we take.”
Other Northern Virginia Starbucks seeking to add beer and wine service are in Arlington, Purcellville, Chantilly, Sterling and Great Falls.
The Starbucks Evenings program rolled out in August in New York City, Denver, Miami, Orlando and Northern California. It now has several hundred alcohol license applications filed nationwide.
Some of the highlights of the Evenings menu:
A secletion of craft beer
About a dozen wine selections (by the glass or bottle), including Alamos Malbec (Argentina), Erath Pinot Gris (Oregon), Columbia Crest H3 Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington), and Villia Sandi Orisecco (Italy).
Small plates include truffle mac and cheese; spinach and artichoke dip; chicken skewers; truffle popcorn; and a cheese plate.
