Our first Wine Pairing Dinner of 2018! Friday January 26th (yes, wine dinners on a weekend) we will pair 6 tasting dishes with 2 wines for each course – one that pairs poorly and one that pairs wonderfully – a fun exploration of the true skill of pairing wine with food. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at 7pm, dinner at 7:30. $125 plus tax (9%) and gratuity (20%). Email email@example.com to reserve seats.
Chef Owner Jon Krinn hosts “Dinner and a Demo” Cooking Classes – $130 for a 4 course dinner with wine pairings, tax and gratuity. You eat, drink, and learn while Chef Jon demos all the techniques and tricks. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in upcoming classes.
Corkage Fee – Our corkage is $30 ($0 on Mondays). Raid Your Cellar Dinners are super popular – Chef Jon creates a luxury tasting menu ($130 per person) for 8-12 friends paired with your cellared wines, with no corkage fee. You can also “Find Clarity” at home for a Raid Your Cellar Dinner. Email email@example.com.

HOURS & RESERVATIONS
If you want to hang out with us on a whim, come on in! If we can’t get you a table in the dining room, which is often the case in prime time, we serve the full menu at the bar and Kitchen Counter. You might have to wait for some seats to open up, but the turn time is normally not all that long.
Dinner: reservations recommended, but walking in works too (see info above).
Mon – Thurs: 5pm – 10pm
Fri – Sat: 5pm – 11pm
Sun: 5pm – 9pm
Lunch: reservations or walking in is welcome and accommodated
Tuesday – Friday: 11:30am – 2pm, remaining open throughout the afternoon for open seating
Our online reservation system is Seat Me. Also, you can call or text us at 703-539-8400 with your request. We use a “voice message to text” response system which is actually more efficient than being put on hold. Please don’t hang up – listen to our entire 20 second message, then leave a voice message with your reservation request or ask us to call you back. We see all messages as texts in real time and will respond within 10 minutes. If you are calling from a cell, expect a quick text back and a continuing text dialog. Please specify if you are calling from a landline, so we can call you back. We monitor messages between the hours of 10:00am – 9:00pm Monday through Friday and 11:00am – 9:00pm Saturday and Sunday. Thank you!
A note on parking….
Parking in front of Clarity fills up fast, but we have another parking lot just steps away. Take a left from East St onto Church St and take another quick left (200 ft) at the Clarity sign into the lot. Park, walk across the bridge straight into the building lobby door and into Clarity.
THE CLARITY TEAM
“Don’t let the bubble burst” Chef Owner Jon Krinn
“Raid Your Cellar” dinners are really popular in the Cellar: gather a group of friends (8-12 recommended), send me a list of wines that you gather from your cellars, and I will create a special multi-couse tasting menu uniquely matched to your wines. Bring as much wine as you want – WITH NO CORKAGE FEE!! (My tasting menus are $140 per guest). Email me at Jon@clarityvienna.com to schedule a date.
