Slate Wine Bar & Bistro’s new chef, Kerry Brian Tate, came in with a bang. Just two weeks into the job at 2404 Wisconsin Ave., Tate has unveiled a tantalizing new menu featuring “mini-plates” such as pan-roasted shishito peppers, entrees including New York strip steak with green peppercorn sauce, and an assortment of soups and desserts.

“It’s a collaboration of fresh, local seasonal foods that I like to prepare and that I like to eat,” Tate tells us. “I try to make it hard for people to order—I want them to want everything on the menu.”

Tate, a Penn Quarter resident, got his culinary training in the California wine country and the high desert of Nevada. He moved to D.C. last year and has been working as a restaurant consultant and caterer. Tate’s plans for Slate include regular Sunday afternoon “socials” where the white tablecloths come off and patrons enjoy inexpensive food and a sampling of wines in a relaxed atmosphere. “We just really want to be a part of Glover Park,” he says.

To mark Tate’s arrival, Slate has partnered with LivingSocial to offer a $15-off meal deal: pay $15 and get a coupon worth $30 in food and drink.
