The owners of this U Street wine bar have looked to the old country for their inspiration. There’s a cozy dining room as well as a backyard plaza with a covered bar and two bocce courts. Sample some of the 50 wines by glass or bottle and divvy up small plates among friends. Brunch is a mimosa bonanza: unlimited pours for $15, ideally paired with a duck confit Benedict.
