Grilled Cheese & Wine Pair Unexpectedly Well at The Pursuit
My cheddar, dijon mustard, mixed greens, and sourdough grilled cheese proved a pleasant accompaniment to a glass of rosé. This is one of many variations you can select from the build your own grilled cheese portion of the dinner menu at The Pursuit (1421 H Street). The Pursuit is a recently opened wine bar that offers a setting both social and intimate.
There's a long bar and a few seats off to the side downstairs, but the upstairs portion is populated entirely with tables and couches.
In addition to an ample selection of wines, The Pursuit also has a full bar, and a cocktail menu that includes rotating specials. In the background of this photo you will notice the Moscow mule cups, and the jars of infused spirits and shrubs.
One thing you might not expect is that The Pursuit serves brunch. I have yet to sample the shrimp and grits, but one of the owners showed me a tempting photo of the dish. Brunch is every Saturday and Sunday from 11am-3pm.
The flights and featured wines change daily, so even frequent customers will find something to pique their interest on any given visit.
