I Endorse: Veritas Wine Bar

Last night Mike and I had another great dinner at Bistro Du Coin. We ate early at around 7pm, so afterwards decided to go have some wine at Veritas, a cozy wine bar right on Florida Avenue which is a hop, skip, and a jump away from Bistro Du Coin. It was a cool night, so we chose to sit outside and enjoy the nice breeze. It felt lovely!

The Veritas wine list is extensive but not daunting like some wine lists are. There are many great reds and whites to choose from. You can have wine by the glass or of course, by the bottle. They also have a great variety of red, white, and dessert wine flights.

We had wine by the glass. Mike started off with the Hullabaloo Zinfandel from Napa Valley, CA which was very tasty. I had the Matchbook "Tinto Rey" from Dunnigan Hills, CA which was a blend of syrah, tempranillo, malbec, petit verdot, and graciano. It was great. Smooth, a little spicy, with a nice finish.

The couple sitting next to us got some munchies which looked good, but we were stuffed from dinner, so didn't order any food. The food on their menu sounds great, so we will definitely go back to have drinks and bites next time. They offer a nice selection of cheeses, charcuterie, dips, and chocolate. Yummy.

The servers were very attentive and down to earth, which we both appreciated. The seating inside was nice as well. Dark with some light music and a nice hum from people chatting. I liked the crowd too. It was a good mix of people. No rowdy annoying GW grads or anything like that.

I can say with certainty that we will return to Veritas again soon for some tasty wine and a good time. You should try it too! Check it out for yourself here.
