1.Mendocino Grille and Wine Bar

"This wine bar/restaurant is the perfect place to relax and enjoy some unique blends and cheese samples while catching up with friends. I'm a regular at the bar!"

2917 M St. NW, 202-333-2912

2. The Blaguard

"Fun people. Large serving glasses. A jukebox. Enough said."

2003 18th St. NW, 202-232-9005

3. Marvin

"Soul food and a dose of D.C. history."

2007 14th St. NW, 202-797-7171

4.Teatro Goldoni

"Two reasons this place makes the list: One, Omar is one of my favorite bartenders in town, and two, I can't get enough of the lobster risotto."
