Located near the center of the H Street Corridor, The Pursuit Wine Bar & Kitchen features an extensive by-the-glass wine list paired with contemporary American comfort foods, inspired by French and Italian cuisine.

The Pursuit Wine Bar opened in June 2014 and is the inaugural restaurant creation of Thomas Boisvert and Kathleen Davis. Since opening its doors, The Pursuit Wine Bar has become a favorite for locals and was named The Best Wine Bar in DC three years in a row by Washington City Paper (2015, 2016 and 2017).

Beginning in 2019, The Pursuit Wine Bar developed plans to relocate closer to the center of the H Street Corridor with a larger kitchen and patio space. Now known as The Pursuit Wine Bar & Kitchen, the new space includes ample seating, a single-floor layout with expansive natural light, and an interior/exterior concrete bar honoring our foundation. As with the initial space, the interior of 1025 H Street NE was designed by Boisvert and Davis, along with new partners to the venture, Adam Kelinsky and Shawn Ross.

The Pursuit Wine Bar & Kitchen will reopen in October 2019 at 1025 H Street NE.
