Husband-and-wife team Anastasia Mori and Dave Bloom opened La Jambe to feed their passion for French wine and cheese. Having no prior bar and restaurant experience between them didn’t stop it from quickly becoming the Shaw neighborhood’s latest smash hit. Find a carefully curated lineup of whites and reds from small-batch producers, and cocktails made entirely from French or D.C. spirits and ingredients.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: The cocktail menu changes seasonally, but never feel bashful to ask for La Surprise and have the bartender work up a special concoction just for you.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Come for the drinks, stay for the cheese. Ask about the latest unique finds and build a loaded plate to go along with all of that wine.
