Best Bar to Get an Education

ANXO Cidery & Pintxos Bar
300 Florida Ave. NW, (202) 986-3795
At some bars, servers balk if you ask them questions like, “What the hell is falernum?” Not so at Basque-inspired ANXO Cidery & Pintxos Bar, where the staff is itching to educate the clientele about their star beverage—cider. My husband once asked so many questions at the Truxton Circle restaurant that I was already plotting my revenge involving Kool-Aid and the shower head. But Cerrissa Fitz happily waxed poetic about what makes some ciders “structured,” and others “bright.” Others should freely do the same.
