Great place to grab a delicious meal and watch a game at the bar

I'm looking for ideas for restaurants that have a bar with a nice flat screen TV to be able to watch a game but still get a good meal. I'm not looking for a crowded and loud sports bar. Some places/examples that I can think of that might fit the bill would be DC Coast, Capital Grille, the bar at the Ritz in Georgetown....any other suggestions?

  1. Can't really think of anything other than Capitol Grille downtown. I watched some March Madness games there and had a good time.

    Central I think has TVs at the bar. Although I am not 100% sure on that I would call, but as I recall they have TVs. I know Poste has a large flat screen TV in the lounge, but I kind of doubt they play games on it, that would rock though. I know they played election night stuff on it.

      Central is definitely a good place. Sonoma might be like Poste where they have a TV but I'm not sure if they will show the game.

    2. I was at PS7s bar yesterday, pretty early, and as I was leaving some Caps fans had turned put on the hockey playoffs.

      1. Ok, so we have the following on the list:

        Capital Grille
        Central
        Poste
        Sonoma
        PS7
        Ritz Carlton bar
        DC Coast

        Any other suggestions?

          I do have to admit that I've never eaten there, but District Chophouse has a pretty cool little upstairs bar area.

        2. Ruth's Chris on Connecticut. I've eaten at the bar there a few times - really cool staff, and they def show sports on TV. Same with the one in Chinatown/Penn Quarter - I've always prefered the Dupont location though.

            I believe there's at least one TV at the bar at The Source

          2. Keep the suggestions coming. The Source does have some TVs but I think I remember them being really small and up pretty high. That's a good option though for a meal at the bar. DC Chophouse is also a good suggestion. I wil have to check out the bar at Ruth's Chris.

            I did try the Capital Grille a couple nights ago and there are 2 flat screens but they are to the side of the bar so if you are eating you have to constantly look up to the left.

            I also remembered Zola and they have both a great bar menu and their full menu available and a large TV where you can easily watch a game. So here's the updateed list:

            Capital Grille (TVs to the side)
            Central
            Poste
            Sonoma
            PS7
            Ritz Carlton bar
            DC Coast
            DC Chophouse
            The Source (small TVs)
            Ruth's Chris
            Zola
