Cork Wine Bar is the creation of Logan Circle residents Diane Gross and Khalid Pitts. Their dream in creating Cork was to open a welcoming space in their neighborhood for people to come with their friends and family to try outstanding wines, often from unexplored regions of the world, paired with good, simple, local food. Cork offers at least 50 wines by the glass and 250 bottles from small producers around the world. Cork is an affordable, casually elegant place that demystifies the world of wine by giving you real descriptions of what you are drinking, flights of wine so you can explore different regions and varietals, and suggestions for pairing our wines with our offerings of small plates and plates to share. We created Cork because we wanted to share our love of delicious food and wine with our community in a comfortable atmosphere where the wine and food can be appreciated by everyone.

AGGIO features a menu inspired by authentic Italian classics that utilize sustainable, domestic ingredients treated with classic and progressive techniques, a trademark of all the Voltaggio restaurants. Voltaggio sourced ingredients such as oak-smoked pecorino cheese from Wisconsin, Tennessee hams cured in the style of prosciutto di Parma, specialty flours from South Carolina for handmade pastas and more to transform his dishes into exceptional modern Italian cuisine.

"This was our first time dining at Aggio, although I've eaten at Range a number of times. None of the entrees spoke to me as much as the tasting menu, so I decided to go for it. I had already ordered wine, so I didn't get the pairings, but I'm sure that would have made the experience even more special. I ordered the Tolani Tuscany Cabernet 2010, which was outstanding! Every course was delightful and the portions were generous for a tasting menu. I was able to spare a few bites for my dining companion, who opted for the pork tenderloin entree. I did like her dessert better - the blueberry cheesecake which included an intensely flavored blueberry sorbet. A great special occasion dinner!"

DBGB is Chef Daniel Boulud's casual restaurant specializing in house-made sausages, burgers and seasonal Lyonnais-inspired bistro cuisine. Located at CityCenter in the Penn Quarter, DBGB is a short walk to the Convention Center, Verizon Center, and The White House. We serve dinner seven nights a week, lunch Monday to Friday, and brunch on the weekends in a casual yet comfortable setting. Bar and lounge seating is always available and walk-ins are encouraged. Two spacious private rooms accommodating from 12-50 people are located on our second floor. We look forward to serving you!

"We ate an early dinner before a show at Verizon. The menu options were so good it was hard to decide what to order. My friend had the salmon, which she raved about and I had the duck, which was outstanding. Our server was attentive but didn't hover or rush us. It was a great meal and a nice ambiance. It was starting to get busy as we left for the show about 7:30pm (on a Sunday night). Not too far from Verizon, but far enough that it wasn't crowded with pre-show patrons. Marriott Hotel parking is nearby."
