Before the wine-bar craze hit Washington, this tiny lounge in upper Georgetown was drawing crowds. Opened in 2002—seven years after the French restaurant downstairs—Bistrot Lepic’s wine bar feels both cozy and cosmopolitan. The crowd is mostly neighborhood residents who drop by to chat with the owner, sample the “appeteasers,” and enjoy a glass of wine. The list has 17 French wines by the glass and half glass as well as hundreds of bottles. For wine-loving workaholics, there’s free wi-fi.
