The Movers and Shakers
DC Harvest is well known on H Street for being innovative and creative as well as healthy and environmentally conscious. The restaurant is literally farm-to-table, sourcing everything on the menu from independent farms and producers. Even the herbs in the cocktails are local. All of the mixers and cocktails are locally sourced! They based their seasonal cocktails off of simple, spring, and unique themes. Every drink is really well thought out.
This cozy yet upscale locale is perfect for brunch, dinner, or cocktails. We love the Asiago bacon doughnuts and S’mores chocolate pot du creme. They go perfectly with the funky and different cocktails–great for sharing, or not.
Is This Seat Taken?
The bar area is large but not overwhelming. There’s a long, beautiful marble bar with memorable light fixtures—the restaurant lies behind. The talented bartenders will craft you one of their signature cocktails while you enjoy the ambience. Take advantage of their daily specials every night from happy hour to date night deals.
Thanks to our booklets from The Passport Program, we got 2-for-1 signature cocktails. This is a bargain, folks.
We tried four drinks while drinking at DC Harvest. Our picks were the Chesapeake Storm, the Smokey Robinson, the Strawberry Field, and the BWB Blood Orange Fizz. All of these beverages were delicious, fresh, well mixed, and strong.
Our signature cocktail, the BWB Fizz is delicious, sweet, bubbly cocktail that goes down easily. It’s made with aperitivo, blood orange juice, rosemary syrup, and Cava bubbly.
I was finished before I knew it—it was just that good. I also loved the Strawberry Field. This cocktail is made with Ivy City gin, fennel liqueur, lemon juice, and roasted strawberry puree. It was sweet but had notes of herbal flavors which kept it interesting and not too sugary.
My date enjoyed the Chesapeake Storm cocktail, which is made with rum, Curacao, ginger syrup, lime juice, salt, and candied ginger lime. It was sweeter than we expected, but we enjoyed the surprise sweetness. We think most would enjoy this drink even if you don’t love rum.
He also tried the Smokey Robinson with Kentucky Gentleman Bourbon, Mezcal, five-spice syrup, lemon juice, and smoked lemon. This drink was smooth, smokey, and strong—an innovative take on a Bourbon cocktail.
