Sous chef Troy Coan offers small bites on the bar menu at Occidental Grill & Seafood, the restaurant next to the Forbes Travel Guide recommended Willard InterContinental in Washington, D.C. In addition to specialty and classic cocktails, diners at the bar can choose from small bites from $7 to $14, including a large date stuffed with goat cheese, truffled French fries with garlic-lemon aioli, a tuna slider with ginger mayo, or near-meal fare like the fried buttermilk quail breast. The menu also offers an antipasto board and a cheese selection, including a goat cheese, two cow cheeses and a sheep variety for $15. Our Forbes Travel Guide editors were taken with the delicious drum cheddar and Manchego, a zesty Spanish sheep’s milk cheese.
