A tree separates the dining room from the bar and lounge at this cozy Dupont Circle spot, where much of the decor—disks cut from a tree trunk, a rough-cut bar top—has a natural feel. A carefully crafted cocktail list (most drinks are $12.50) boasts creative choices such as the Salsa Verde, made with poblano-pepper-infused tequila. Small snacks include chicken-fried oysters ($14) and portobello fritters ($8). During happy hour—weekdays 4 to 6—select beer bottles are $3, wine $4, and rail drinks $5.
