Would definitely return – We went to Againn on a Monday night at 7pm and the place was pretty empty. Monday nights all of their wine bottles are 1/2 off, so we splurged on a more expensive wine. The mushroom tart appetizers were great - three of us devoured two of them. One in our party ordered the whole fish special (which was sustainable - a plus in my book) which had a great presentation and was enjoyed by all. I loved the updated version of shepard's pie, and it was great to have the leftovers for lunch the next day!

My only complaint was that we had a bit of an overeager waiter who returned to check on us a bit too much for our taste while we tried to catch up.

I would love to return and try more on the menu, as well as sit at the bar to explore some of their beer and cocktails.

Pub Fare Taken to Another Level – I love the food at the Againn - it's got tastes of the UK but with a gourmet twist. The quality is on par with many of the nicer establishments in the city. Every time I've come here, I've ordered the Brussels sprouts, which I believe (and many others as I've heard) are reason enough to try Againn. They're roasted nicely in a mini Dutch oven with chunks of bacon and are perfect to start or accompany a meal. I've had their pork belly twice and liked it both times; it's a filling portion of pork, white grits (delish!) and a sauteed vegetable. Againn's mussels are top-notch as well. It's an appetizer but could easily be an entree for one - you get huge bowl of mussels steamed in a curry broth served with a chunk of crusty bread. I couldn't stop eating them even when I was full. The banoffee pie is also good reason to visit Againn. It's a perfectly small but not-too-small jar filled with a graham-cracker crust, sweet bananas, ganache and cream. As stated already, their drinks are also excellent. I'm a huge Pimms Cup fan so I only expected an excellent one from Againn and received just that. I've experienced great service here as well - I've been able to be seated immediately and the wait staff has always been kind and attentive. Againn is perfect for a special night or just an impromptu meal out in the neighborhood.

We love it- but why is the service so bad? – My husband and I recently stopped by on a Saturday afternoon and spent an afternoon at the bar drinking scotch, eating *yummy* food, and wondering if this was finally a local hangout (albeit pricey.) Alas, I walked in this evening and the host couldn't even be bothered to look up from the front desk as I walked in. Then, the tiny bar was packed with 3 seats reserved (and empty). And no one was going to make it easy to grab a drink and hang out. The host was kind enough to look up when I was *on my way out*! I'm new to DC (from New York) - what is the deal with DC's snobby-ness?!? I want to root for Againn- why do they make it hard?

Citysearch Editorial Review – With its soft lighting and chic British-industrial decor, Againn is a great downtown gastropub for a sophisticated happy hour or quiet dinner. Pork dishes--including several charcuterie plates, pork-and-garlic sausages and Tamworth pork belly--are menu standouts, as well as appetizers such as steamed mussels and lamb tongue. A raw bar of oysters, prawn, shellfish and salmon presents another sharable option. Attention to detail is evident in the specialty cocktails; the Dutch Courage tastes like Christmas with its high-end Genever gin and rosemary garnish, and the popular Bareknuckle Boxer mixes whiskey with a long list of exquisite ingredients, finished off with a flaming orange.
