Ask a friend for a restaurant recommendation, and odds are you've heard about Capitol Cellars. The restaurant at 5th & Main opened a new patio and will host a special event on Tuesday in celebration.

Free food, drinks and desserts will be available between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Tuesday, August  15th including sangria, mimosas, a variety of hors d'oveuvres and sorbet.  The restaurant is rolling out a new happy hour menu and that will be available during the celebration as well.

Capitol Cellars is known for their wine bar and locally sourced food.  They have won recognition and an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator last year.

The new patio was part of a project that changed the exterior of the Belgravia Building over the last year.
