Pursuit Wine Bar Debuts Pasta

10 Nov

Two weeks ago, Pursuit Wine Bar (1421 H Street, NE) debuted housemade pasta on its menu.  Initially, they offered fettucini with lamb and pork ragu and have since added both butternut squash and goat cheese ravioli and rabbit sugo pappardelle.  The owners tell us that the pasta dishes will be a permanent feature on the menu and that they plan on adding an additional pasta dish every week or two.

H Street has a great wine bar?  Most people would answer no to this question.  However, venture east of 14th street, past the many vacant storefronts and you will quickly learn that Pursuit Wine Bar (1421 H Street, NE) opened quietly this summer and is subtly filling an important void in the Atlas District.  For many people, the H Street Corridor ends at 14th street because there are not many establishments east of there besides the Argonaut.  Yet, Pursuit is well worth your time.

On any given night, there are well over 40 wines available by the glass as well as beer and cocktails for the non-vino drinkers.  Not sure what you want or want to experiment?  Try their flight of five wines for the very reasonable $15.  The downstairs bar has over a dozen seats and a front table in the window; if the bar is full, checkout upstairs for tables.  Their menu features a cheeseboard and a charcuterie board as well as several salads and a make-your-own grilled cheese menu.
