The Pursuit Wine Bar & Kitchen stood out even in the midst of a difficult year for the hospitality industry, earning the title of Best Wine Bar and a spot on The Washington City Paper’s Best Wine List in 2020. A big part of the draw is, of course, the impressive list of globally sourced wines by the glass—but the upscale tapas and entrees certainly don’t hurt. Neither do the stunning city views visible through tall windows wrapping around the bar.
Whether you feel more comfortable enjoying your vino outside or inside, The Pursuit has an option for you. On a warm D.C. evening, grab a spot on the large patio and sip on your chosen pour. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, feel free to snag one of the limited number of socially distanced tables inside. With the panoramic windows, you’ll still have a beautiful view of the city to enjoy as you nosh on cheese and charcuterie or garlic jumbo shrimp.
