Sonoma Restaurant + Wine Bar
At Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar, our culinary mission is straightforward - use the best local ingredients as simply as possible. New American Cuisine places an emphasis on seasonal ingredients that are regionally available, and our menu changes frequently to reflect the Mid-Atlantic's offerings. The first floor, a bustling, "upscale-casual" bistro and wine bar, offers superior moderately-priced cuisine by using the best local, organic, and naturally raised ingredients. The menu bears a southern European influence, and is comprised of four groups: cheese and charcuterie, handmade pasta and pizzas, wood-grilled meats and fish, and organic salads and produce. The second floor features a lounge and reserve wine bar along with a dining room for private events. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be taken by telephone or through OpenTable. $20/bottle corkage fee (2 bottle maximum) $3/person cake fee (including cupcakes)
Wine country meets Washington in this lively spot just steps away from the Capitol. A casual yet refined menu with options to please meat lovers, vegetarians and even vegans. The burgers are particularly delicious as are the imaginative pasta dishes. Sit back with a glass of one of their many vinos and escape to wine country for a few precious moments.
I have to tell you, if you are looking for a $12 burger and pretentious surroundings then this is the place for you. I (personally) did not appreciate the d�cor, but I could see where it could be appealing to someone looking to impress.
This is may not be my kind of place, but if you need to make someone think you like the �finer things�, hey � go for it.
Amongst all of the smoky bars on the Penn Ave strip, Capitol Hill finally has an upscale casual restaraunt that is perfect for having a quick drink after work with friends, a first date, a celebration gathering, or romantic dinner.
The food is fresh and delicious, and the selection of 30+ wines are each unique.
The staff is very professional and friendly, and always go out of thier way to make sure each visit is excellent.
