Out of a field of 10, Bourbon Steak emerged the winner, just edging out Morton's.
"We take our cocktail program here at BOURBON STEAK very seriously and it means a lot to us that our neighborhood residents appreciate what we do. We're honored to have won this award and are committed to providing our guests the best cocktails in Georgetown and in DC," wrote Bourbon Steak spokesperson
Sangeetha Sarma in an email to Patch.
In Arlington, readers recommend Uncle Julio's Rio Grande Cafe for the best place to celebrate a happy or special occasion and Liberty Tavern took home the prize for "distinctly Arlington" restaurant to take out-of-town guests.
In Alexandria, the choice was La Strada for best Italian food.
Next week we'll be doing another reader's choice contest. We need your input before Monday to decide which places to include on our list of "Best Places to Take an Out-of-Towner/Most Quintessential Georgetown." What are the must-see, must-eat places you go back to again and again with visitors?
Voting starts Monday, Mar. 5 at 5 a.m. and ends next Friday, Mar. 9 at 9 a.m.
