The Pegu Blog: Agraria Farmers & Fishers

Doug of The Pegu Blog recently brought his family to DC for a visit. Prior to his arrival, he’d pinged me and the guys from Scofflaw’s Den about family friendly restaurants in Washington that have good cocktail programs. This was a tough nut to crack, as most of DC’s best cocktail establishments are either exclusively focused on cocktails (The Gibson & PX) or are very much bars with good food (Bourbon, Bar Pilar). PS7s and Tabard Inn are both great restaurants with great bars, but I don’t know how suitable they are for families with young kids, as I don’t have either. I did suggest that Doug try Agraria Farmers & Fishers in Georgetown. I haven’t been there but I’ve heard good things about their head bartender Jon Arroyo and their recently-launched bar program that includes a heavy emphasis on Tiki drinks.

It turns out that Doug thought Agraria was the best choice of the options the DC cocktail bloggers presented him. It was so nice, he went there twice. He’s posted a review of it on his site and it’s definitely worth a read. In fact, it sounds so good that I now think I need to stop procrastinating and make a trip there to enjoy it myself. In the mean time, I recommend you go read Doug’s review.
