MVT in the News: Bar Chinois Makes Washington Post’s “2022 Fall Dining Guide”

Friday October 7, 2022

Hot off the press: Washington Post food super-critic Tom Sietsema just served up his “2022 Fall Dining Guide” and Bar Chinois has made the list! Paying extra attention to restaurants that “offer distinctive value,” Sietsema was thoroughly impressed by Bar Chinois’ robust happy hour and capable staff with smiles “as broad as Dwayne Johnson’s” (his words, not ours!). Check out an excerpt of the review below, and experience what all the buzz is about at Bar Chinois’ happy hour Tuesday-Saturdays from 5-7pm.

From the article: “The industrial setting in Mount Vernon Triangle is warmed up with red lights and splashes of teal in the bar, but also Chinese finger food, enlightened riffs on orange chicken, embedded in a nest of spiky greens; crisp pork belly jolted with hot mustard and nestled in tender bao; and wontons slicked with red chile oil. The snack-y menu seems to suit the pre-dinner, post-club crowds that routinely gather in what feels like a hub for the cool kids.”
