Reading Room DC of Petworth Citizen
Washington, DC 20011United States
The Reading Room is a small library bar that is open on Fridays & Saturdays, and sometimes for special events. We have a weekly changing cocktail menu that consistently features sherry cocktails as well as a sherry list of 20+. Our bartender who curates the menu is Chantal Tseng, also a Certified Sherry Educator.
Our recommended Sherry pairing
Valdespino's Tio Diego Amontillado is one of our most popular sherries by the glass, as well as the C.P. Viejo Palo Cortado. While the food menu updates weekly, a current recommended pairing are the charred carrots with honey, labne, bee pollen & mint. The amontillado tastes lovely with it.
