Five Bites on Friday

Allan, author of CellarBlog, offers five favorite dishes from DC wine bars with accompanying wine.

1. Venison, bison and tuna sliders with Tamari Malbec Reserve at Vinoteca

2. Lasagnette al ragu with Miramonte Syrage at Dino

3. Lamb tenderloins with Couly-Dutheil Cabernet Franc at Bardeo

4. Salmon in potato crust, fresh grapes and ouzo grape sauce paired with Olivier Schlatter Pouilly Fume at Bistrot Lepic

5. "The cheese flights at just about any wine bar are a great way to explore different types of cheese with a glass of whatever the happy hour special is," Allan says.
