Going Out Gurus: November 7, 2010 - November 13, 2010

Minds behind Siroc to open sister restaurant Vento in Dupont

When partners Keram Dris, Mehdi Dris and Chef Martin Lackovic opened Siroc in 2008, their hope was to open a casual, upbeat trattoria in the style of I Matti, the Adams Morgan establishment where the three initially met in the '90s. Unfortunately, the space they opened in was missing some key ingredients... like a bar. This evening, the partners will finally open the place they initially imaged when they debut their new restaurant, Vento, in the old MiMi's space at 2120 P Street, NW.

Head to Room 11 every weekend to enjoy glögg -- a traditional Swedish mulled wine -- on the bar's large patio. Borrow a fleece blanket from the bar if you feel a chill.
