There must be something in the (tonic) water.

Perhaps it’s the friendly competition. Maybe it’s the draw of a trendy, up-and-coming neighborhood. But if you’re a bar and you’re on 14th Street, you’re probably doing something right.

Last night at the Rammys — the awards gala honoring the best and brightest in the D.C. culinary scene — all of the drink-related categories were taken by 14th Street haunts. But we’re calling it a coincidence: the four establishments taking top marks, highlighted below, could likely stand on their own anywhere in the city.
