The Rustico is a very nice restaurant with over 300 bottles and a large tap selection plus one cask conditioned tap (on my visit is was Troegs Dead Reckoning which was extremely good) that they say is rotated out every 4 days.

I had the mac & cheese which tasted excellent but took forever to eat as it came straight out of the oven and was boiling when it arrived at the table. The price was a little steep. Lots of people seemed to be enjoying pizzas which seemed more reasonably priced and of excellent quality as well.

The service was pretty good but a tad slow with the place being mostly full but not totally packed and our waitress admitting to being kind of new.

Overall I would definitely go back to Rustico next time I am in DC. They have an excellent beer selection and good food.

Side notes:

Any bottle they have you can pick up to take home which worked out very well when I had room for 2 more bottles and they had some 2007 Weyerbacher Insanity.

The owner stopped by out table and saw me taking notes on the beer I was drinking and had a nice little chat. He said they were about to open another location in DC that would have over 500 beers and 5 casks.

I've stopped by Rustico numerous times and always enjoy the beer and food. On my last visit they had De Ranke XX ($8), Blvd Saisonbrett ($7), Jade IPA ($5), Spacewalker ($4) and several others. Not bad for a draft list.

One of our beers came out with a bit of foreign material floating in it (probably something from the beer line that dislodged) and our waitress exchanged it immediately. I wouldn't ding Rustico just because it does happen occasionally. We also were brought a beer that we didn't order and were told to keep it on the house.

Food is above average and include pizzas, hummus and other better bar food.
