An investment group headed by a wine-loving lawyer bought Kitchen 2404 (2404 Wisconsin Ave.) today. The lawyer, Internet privacy and security attorney Elizabeth Banker, plans to turn the Southern-themed eatery into a “casual and comfortable” neighborhood restaurant called Slate Wine Bar & Bistro. The new spot will be “a destination for wine lovers of all levels of knowledge and experience” says Banker, who has put both her legal career and her part-time wine consultancy on hold to devote her full attention to Slate, her first restaurant. Banker is the majority owner of the buyers’ group, called Wine Investment Group LLC. Her partners are current and former work colleagues and members of a wine club she has run for the past four years, she says.

Along with daily wine specials, tasting seminars, and winemaker’s dinners, Slate will feature cheese plates, charcuterie, a rotating seasonal menu, and daily and weekly food specials made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, Banker says. General manager Mark Krieger, a veteran of Chef Geoff’s (3201 New Mexico Ave.), is “developing the menu with the advice of various chefs,” Banker adds. “The food will be American, drawing on various global influences and flavors, since our wines will be from around the world.”

The ownership group plans to redecorate the restaurant, which is temporarily closed. Details of the new decor have not been finalized, but judging from Banker’s “Wine Bar Inspiration” Pinterest page, the look will likely be a blend of farmhouse-rustic and sleek contemporary.

The Kitchen 2404 business comes with a full-service (CR) liquor license, one of 14 allowed under Glover Park’s license moratorium. Two new CR licenses became available April 17 when the moratorium was extended. One of the new licenses seems certain to go to Sprig & Sprout, a Vietnamese restaurant coming to 2317 Wisconsin Ave. in the fall. The other new license had not been applied for as of yesterday, according to a spokesman for the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration.

Slate is expected to open sometime next month. For updates on its progress, you can visit its website“like” it on Facebook, or follow its Twitter feed.
