Dickson Wine Bar (DC)

We are not really hip enough for Dickson (903 U Street) but we hit it anyway before a recent 9:30 Club show.  Pleasantly surprised by the food, pretty good flatbread overall — excellent toppings (e.g. mushroom, arugula/prosciutto) and okay bread, kind of chewy and dry for my taste.  Small but unusual beer and wine selection, everything some degree of organic or “biodynamic.” Excellent pork banh mi, non-traditional in its rich barbecued pork and barely any pickled veggies or pate, but delicious anyway and that’s what matters.  Good and large salads. Excellent service, though I gather this may vary depending on how busy they are.  Overall a place I would visit more if I visited that neighborhood more.
