Bistrot Lepic Happy Hour

'

Editorial Review

The atmospheric wine bar at Bistrot Lepic has long been a Guru favorite, especially on Tuesdays, when two selected wines or champagnes are free for customers to taste. (A recent example of what you'll try: a 2007 Bouchard Ain & Fils pinot noir and a 2008 La Garenne sancerre.) But now the Burleith wine bar is trying to lure us in the rest of the week with a new after-work happy hour that features of all the wines on the all-French list for half-price. This means half-glasses for $2.50 to $3.50 and full pours for $3.50 to $7.50, plus a menu of small plates for $5 each. Deals run from 5:30 to 7 every day except Tuesday, so don't miss out.
