Sixty Vines to open next month in former Clyde’s at Reston Town Center

A restaurant with five dozen wines on tap is on track to fill the void left by Clyde’s of Reston before the end of this year.

Sixty Vines, a Texas-based concept that pitches itself as a “wine lover’s restaurant,” will open its first Virginia location in 11905 Market Street at Reston Town Center this December, though an exact launch date remains to be determined.

“We’re looking forward to opening our first location in Reston, especially so close to Virginia’s own wine country,” Sixty Vines CEO Jeff Carcara said in a press release. “With Sixty Vines’ pinkies down approach to wine culture, our new Reston location offers a wine country adventure nestled next to the Town Center pavilion.”

The 12,857-square-foot restaurant will feature indoor and outdoor seating with a full bar and a private events space. The space has been vacant since Clyde’s shuttered in May 2022 after 31 years at the town center.

The restaurant group behind Clyde’s is sticking around Reston with a new concept called Ebbitt House — a spin-off of D.C.’s seafood-focused Old Ebbitt Grill — coming to Reston Row near the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station.

Part of the restaurant group FB Society, Sixty Vines opened its first location in 2016 in Plano, Texas, according to the Washington Business Journal, which originally reported the Reston Town Center lease last summer.

The restaurant now has eight locations in Texas, Florida, Tennessee and North Carolina, but the Reston opening will kick off plans for a nationwide expansion, with four more sites anticipated next year, per the press release.

In addition to wine, Sixty Vines serves cocktails and beer. Its menu includes sandwiches, pasta, pizza, salads, and main courses of seafood and meat.

Here’s more on what to expect in Reston:

The inventive global menu celebrates seasonal flavors made with local, fresh ingredients. When stepping through the doors of Sixty Vines, guests can expect to be transported to wine country through a selection of reds, rosés, sparklings, and whites as sourced exclusively from iconic winemakers, along with a variety of cocktails and mocktails.

Sixty Vines prides itself on its innovative and sustainable approach to serving wine. Each keg holds 26 bottles and can be reused around 1,500 times over its refillable lifetime. This eco-friendly tap system not only reduces waste and protects the planet, but also offers the closest ‘from the barrel’ tasting experience for guests to discover the finest pours…

…Open for brunch, lunch, and dinner, the restaurant brings fresh, shared plates that perfectly pair with each glass. Featuring communal style dining, the experience is designed to take guests on a journey through food and drink as they taste and sip their way through seasonally sourced offerings. Highlights include custom charcuterie boards, fresh salads, wood-fired pizzas such as Fig and Prosciutto, Spicy Sausage, and Mushroom and Kale, homemade pasta dishes, and vibrant seafood entrées like Atlantic Salmon and Grilled Swordfish.

The restaurant will be open for lunch, dinner and Saturday and Sunday brunch.
