  • Great Shoals Winery
    All crafted from local ingredients sourced from a handful of nearby farms, the ciders and wines at Great Shoals Winery are firmly rooted in the region. And folks have taken notice. Their collection has earned a number of ribbons, which have accumulated since the very first year the hard cider went into production. The more than 20 wines made there appear in a range of styles, including dry and sweet sippers made from apples, pears, and cherries. At the tasting room, visitors can sip samples of many of these, as well as purchase bottles and gifts, or enjoy the frequent events that are hosted on-site.

  • Fire and Sage
    Though the design in Fire & Sage’s dining room exudes modern elegance, the eatery’s kitchen relies on a decidedly more Old-World device: a wood-fired brick oven. Serving as the kitchen’s cornerstone, the oven bakes signature flatbread pizzas whose flavors range from the classic pairing of mozzarella and basil to an eclectic mélange of sopressa, pepperoni, chorizo, and goat cheese. These upscale twists on finger food represent Executive Chef Stephen Malfatti’s entire menu of refined American classics such as crab-cake sliders on potato rolls, sage-marinated organic chicken over sweet-potato risotto, and sea scallops topped with wild-mushroom ragout. As a starter, the gooey artichoke dip was described as “so generous with lump crab, we imagine it comes from the recipe files of Daddy Warbucks,” by the Washington Post. Regional microbrews join domestic and international beers on the drink menu, which also boasts eight signature cocktails ranging from a tiramisu martini to a cucumber-based concoction with Skinnygirl vodka. Inside the Washington Marriott at Metro Center, diners sit at high-top tables in the bar area or in plush, lime-green booths with giraffe-print accents in the dining room. The colorful booths and chairs play elegantly against the golden-hued wood of the walls and floors, all of which are illuminated by oversize hanging lamps.

  • Wisdom
    It seems counterintuitive that a bar called Wisdom would feature a huge selection of absinthe—that notorious precursor to risky decision-making. If you manage to keep your wits about you, you might recognize that the Wealthy Missionary, a signature cocktail, gets its name from a J. D. Salinger novel.

  • Mama Ayesha's
    By the 1940s, Mama Ayesha Abraham had already established herself as a successful young farmer in Jerusalem. But instead of adding to her more than 20 farms, she decided to move to the United States, where she found work in the kitchen of the Syrian Embassy. After many years and countless orders for Capital Hill’s elite, she opened a restaurant called Calvert Café. Today, her nephews and great nephews manage the restaurant, which has been renamed Mama Ayesha's and has been family-owned-and-operated for more than five decades. But her presence is still felt. Her recipes are used to make the eatery’s kebabs and Middle Eastern dishes, and her image appears outside the restaurant on a large mural that also features several recent presidents.

  • Sona Creamery
    How much cheese can a human being eat? A plate's worth? A board? Or maybe an entire cave full of it? Sona Creamery is one of the only places in the world where a person can answer all of those important questions. More than a hundred different cheeses cool and develop complex flavors inside the onsite aging caves, which are the result of cheesemonger Matt O'Herron's tireless work ethic. He searches the world to find intriguing cheese varieties, such as sharp cheddars from Vermont and Stinking Bishop from Britain. Others, including the home-made chevre, come from right in-house. The cheese isn't the whole story at Sona, however. The venue serves its signature cheeseboards alongside breads, fruits, charcuterie, and wine and beer. On-staff experts even teach pairing classes to help guests determine what wine tastes best poured over which cheese. Sona Creamery's cheese reservoirs further benefit its onsite restaurant, where chefs incorporate the gourmet ingredients into mac and cheese, grilled cheese, and other familiar comfort foods.
