    The restaurant is known for its wine list, and the rotating, curated flights are a good opportunity to sample some of the more usual selections from it. [Eater 38 Member]

    The Domaine Billard Père et Fils, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune 2009 (Pinot Noir) is the best I've ever had. I had three glasses, just to be sure. Pair with cheese and charcuterie and leave happy.

    Great wine and food. The Duck Confit is the best thing on the menu. After that I'd say the Brioche and Sea Bream/Orata are tied for second. Change of pace? Pete is one of the best mixologists in DC

    über-trendy Logan Circle wine bar, “a huge array of wines by the glass without an outrageous markup” is paired with “delightful” New American small plates with an “extra edge of creativity”

    The selection of wines, cheese and charcuterie is so well edited you always leave with a winner. Their wine fundamentals classes are great for the novice and expert wine lover. Read more

    You must try the Citrus Mimosa Flight. The food is all amazing, esp the pan-crisped brioche sandwich with prosciutto, fontina and a sunny-side up egg and the avocado with toasted pistachio oil Read more

    Who knew that pistachios and avocado was a match made in heaven? Get a little bit of everything and trust the waiter's suggestions. Good for groups of 4-6 as well as dates.

    Bitches say B+! a tasty meal at a reasonable price. I would go again to experience the avocado toast and cinnamon rolls—as well to check out some other items on the menu

    Delicious small plates and well thought out wine list. Be bold and ask for something interesting, the bar tender will oblige.

    Cork matches its wine selection with an equally impressive cheese menu. It's fairly economical, as well, at three for $12, five for $18, and seven for $24.

    Must: Avocado & pistachio toast. The small/large size of calamari are comparable. Travis (server w/the amazing arm artwork) gives the best recommendations!

    It's a nice atmosphere. They keep the music low to allow conversation. Also, I enjoyed the flatbread.

    They really need to see there's a world full of wine out there, beyond France, Italy and Spain. Friendly staff and good taste, but portions are tiny...

    Definitely try the avocado w/ the pistachios on grilled bread. It's fantastic! For wine I recommend the La Montesa, Rioja, Palacios Remondo 2004 from Spain. Potent!
