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.

Pros: great food, decent price

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.

Pros: Unique twists on English food

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?

Pros: Great bar, good food, great location

Cons: Service is *way* too snobby for downtown DC!
