The quality and diversity of the area’s restaurant scene continue to earn attention and accolades from local and national food media.
Co-owners Jarrod Jabre and Justin Wallace opened Locavino in the former Adega Wine Cellars space at 8519 Fenton St. in Downtown Silver Spring in August of 2019. The Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, awarded to the wine café in 2020, 2021, and 2022, “recognizes thoughtfully chosen wine lists that offer quality and diversity, as well as compatibility with the restaurant’s style and menu.”
“We’re a wine café. We specifically use that word,” Jabre said to the Source in 2019. “We’re laid back. We don’t take ourselves seriously. What we do take seriously is our wine and our food.”
