Can it really be one more week until Christmas?  As I was dashing around town looking for some hostess gifts, a friend suggested I stop by the flagship store of Julia Baker Confections for some inspiration (and an espresso).  Celebrating its one year anniversary on December 17th, Julia Baker Confections is part boutique/part wine and coffee bar.  You will find it nestled between Williams-Sonoma and White House Black Market in the Biltmore Fashion Park Mall.  The architect on the project was Mark Candelaria and interior design done by Claire Ownby.  The wine and coffee bar can be rented for special events, and accommodates 30 people.  The wine list features, by the glass or bottle, refreshing selections such as Sorelle Bronca Prosecco, Veuve Clicquot Champagne, Graham’s Tawny Port, and Julia’s Signature Chocolate Martini.  The store will also sell bottles of champagne and port paired with a selection of chocolates.  It doesn’t hurt that they sell Graham’s port which is owned by the Symington family of Portugal (ok, call me biased).  Whatever you do, do not tarry…run out there today!
