5 Places to Pair Your Drink With Lobster in DC

5 Places to Pair Your Drink With Lobster in DC

It’s lobster season and with it comes a new opportunity for pairing summer beverages. From sea-inspired cocktails to classic wine and New England brews, there’s an adult beverage fit for every lobster occasion at these five spots.

Hank’s Oyster Bar: Gina Chersevani’s cocktail list at Eddy Bar is reason enough to visit Hank’s Capitol Hill outpost, but the lobster roll with Old Bay fries wins rave reviews, too. This won’t be the first time someone’s had seafood with a side of Hanky Panky near the Capitol — but this one comes with citrus sage soda (633 Pennsylvania Ave. SE; 202-733-1971).

Luke’s Lobster: Experience a taste of New England in Penn Quarter at Luke’s, where the lobsters aren’t the only thing from Maine: the eatery also offers microbrews from Allagash, Peak, Geary’s, Atlantic Brewing and Maine Beer Company (624 E St. NW; 202-347-3355).

Red Hook Lobster Pound: The Lobster Truck” — as it’s known around the District — is perhaps Washington’s most popular food truck. If you dare brave the line, you’ll want to grab a lobster roll (Maine style is served with homemade lemon mayo; Connecticut style is poached in butter) and BYOB.

Founding Farmers: With gouda-cheddar gratin, the lobster macaroni and cheese is a popular pick at this Foggy Bottom restaurant. Luckily, there’s no shortage of drinks with which to pair it: the beverage program includes three different cocktail lists, housemade sodas and a nice selection of brews (1924 Pennsylvania Ave.; 202-822-8783).

The Palm: Go old school at this Dupont establishment, which is offering a summer lobster dinner for two for $79.95 through the end of August. The deal includes a four-pound Nova Scotia lobster and a choice of two starters and two individual sides. Keep it classy with a bottle of wine to go along(1225 19th St. NW; 202-293-9091).
