The Scoop: Ciao, Parker’s Table

January 26th 02:01pm, 2009

Jonathan Parker has announced the sad news that he’s shuttering his Parker’s Table wine shop in the coming weeks. The building, at 8137 Maryland Ave., that houses the Clayton shop has been sold, and Parker said he must vacate as a result. The silver lining? One heckuva sale: All wine is currently 20 percent off, and food items are discounted by 30 percent; the savings increase after the 31st in order to make for a lighter load on moving day. Fans of the shop and its keeper are invited to stop by on Sat., Jan. 31 for a farewell toast.

    John will be back and the area he chooses will be all the better. There may be no finer knowledge of Italian wine in town…
