Several Virginia Starbucks locations recently began serving beer, wine and savory snacks as part of the new “Starbucks Evenings” program, but two Reston stores slated for the rollout are not yet participating.
Starbucks stores at South Lakes and North Point Village Centers in Reston have had Alcoholic Beverage (beer and wine) license applications with the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Board that are still listed as “pending.”
Starbucks announced last summer it would add the Evenings program, which was tested in New York City, for a nationwide audience. The two Reston stores, along with one in Great Falls, have been in the works since then, but a Starbucks spokeswoman said the addition is a “long and thoughtful process.”
The first DC-area stores started serving wine and beer a few weeks ago. Among them — stores at Tysons (Pike 7 Shopping Center), Chantilly (Chantilly Crossing) and Fairfax (Fairfax Boulevard).
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.
