The Petworth Citizen Washington DC
Laura Hayes

From the folks behind The Passenger and Room 11, Petworth Citizen and Reading Room is the kind of classic-drink-slinging bar your father's father's father's brother's uncle's lawyer would've drank at... AND eaten at 'cause they've got S'mores Waffles!!!

Mixologist The Petworth Citizen Washington DC
Laura Hayes

The drink menu's overseen by a chick who's made stops at Firefly and Vinoteca, and includes under-$10 tipples and -- 2009 Legarrette Blount's gonna love this!! -- a daily punch selection.

Cocktails The Petworth Citizen Washington DC
Laura Hayes

And while the drinks all lean pretty classic, the names? Not so much. The Kill Bill Vol. 1 features Old Overholt Rye, sesame and ginger simple syrup, and orange bitters, plus you can sip on a tequila-based Boo Radley, a name nod to the bar's mini free public library. Oh yeah, they've got a mini free public library.

Time to order. Specifically, the fried chicken sausage sandwich, dreamed up by a world-class Mandarin Oriental chef. Naturally.

Wings The Petworth Citizen Washington DC

Another winner? The wings, which you can get doused in soy, ginger, and garlic. World-class Mandarin Oriental chef, remember?

And then, of course, there's the S’maffle: chocolate and 'mallows melted all up on a half waffle.
