Very Good Food at Bar Pilar

Bar Pilar, located on Washington, D.C.'s 14th Street, gives bar food a whole new image. Halibut ceviche, slow-roasted pork shoulder and grilled octopus were some of the small plates that I shared with friends there last night. Each one was excellent.

The bar is cozy and intimiate without giving one a claustrophic feel.

Their website pictures Ernest Hemingway, and at first I was stumped at the connection between the author and Bar Pilar. But it turns out that Hemingway had a boat that he named "Bar Pilar."
