Excellent choice across the street from the National Portrait Gallery. Their take on Cobb salad with crispy chicken, egg, red onion, etc. was very good. Decent choices of wine by the glass. Comfy chairs in the lounge watching the world walk by. Quite good.

We hit this bar before a concert at the Capital One Arena. It was a swanky place with upscale and delicious bar bites and a nice drink menu. But not too ostentatious. Would definitely recommend for food and drinks when in the area.

We had no reservation and didn't have to wait at all. And our table was spectacular. Luck? Maybe.
