Brookland gets a boost from this French wine bar and bistro from wife-and-husband team Lauren Winter and Sebastian Zutant. Zutant is a former partner in The Red Hen, and Winter is a designer. The duo partnered with the team of chef Nathan Beauchamp and Greg Algie, behind spots such as The Fainting Goat and Tiger Fork. In other words, the space is beautiful, the food is excellent, and the drinks selection is superb. Expect a deep list of French natural wines, including many pours by the glass.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: There are 20 wines by the glass, all at $14 or less and spanning a broad stylistic range of reds, whites and bubbles. Choose wisely.
