If you’re just getting back to in-person dining, you might as well make it at a top spot. The Pursuit Wine Bar & Kitchen was named the Readers’ Choice Best Wine Bar in 2020 and Best Wine List 2020 by The Washington City Paper. This classy establishment is well-deserving of the honor, and serves an impressive array of wines by the glass complemented by a menu of modern American cuisine.
Try a reasonably priced flight of reds, whites, or bubbles, paired with elevated small plates like garlic shrimp, burrata with fig glaze, and vinaigrette-coated Brussels sprouts. For heartier dinner options, choose from handmade pastas in rich, flavorful sauces, or crispy panini stuffed with curated cheeses and locally sourced spreads. And for being a wine bar, The Pursuit has an equally extensive selection of cocktails, beers, ciders, and spirits. There really is something for everyone.
Find this upscale eatery and bar on H Street NE, just moments from your Washington DC apartment, with operating hours seven days a week. Reservations are strongly suggested.
