More About Againn:

Lads (and lassies) take note: a man must protect what's his, especially if that thing is a perfectly-aged bottle of scotch. D.C.'s gastropub, Againn, understands.

Rent one of 130 private Scotch lockers and that aged Macallan or Glenfiddich is yours and yours alone -- unless, of course, you choose to share. The year-long locker rentals come complete with a chic nameplate so that everyone knows just how spectacularly selective you can be. But it's never good to drink on an empty stomach; cozy into a deep leather booth or pony up to the 19-seat bar and order a hearty meal to match your peaty precious. From savory meat pies to a "roast of the day," these British isles-inspired dishes remind you of the cozy pubs in London or Dublin. Let exec chef Wesley Morton prepare Loch Duart salmon tartare with smoked paprika, preserve lemons and toast to start, followed by a hearty, house-made corned beef with horseradish creme, brown bread and pickles, or Scottish highland beef burger on house-made bun with caramelized onions, farmstead cheddar and chips. Aren't one of the lucky few with private bottle service? Never fear: Scott Baird and Josh Harris of San Francisco's Bon Vivants, a beverage consulting firm, have crafted an extensive artisanal cocktail list plus beer and wine sure to pair well with your picks.
