An old standby in Dupont Circle gets better with age. Nice wine selection and creative soups and snacks. Lots of comfort on a cold, rain filled and windy DC afternoon.
We (2) stopped in after having happy hour at the Dupont. We decided to try the grilled fish tacos and crab pasta. The fish taco under grilled and wet with a soggy tortilla.

We stopped here for lunch and were very happy with the choice. A Ramen noodle soup/stew with chicken and fried pork belly was prepared that day by the chef who had invented it and it was excellent. The tomato soup was one of the tastiest concoctions that I have ever had. The Goat Curry was tender and perfectly spiced. A... More
Three of my favourite things in life are bookshops, bars and restaurants, so finding all of those wrapped in one was a joy. The bookshop looks a bit small at first, but if you look at the shelves carefully you will discover gems (I wish I had bought more). You can then take your purchases to the bar, where the... More
