We love the idea of supporting local restaurants that offer tasty sustainable cuisine and cheap happy hour deals.  Here are our top picks:

CommonWealth Gastropub

It's bloody cold out. Shake off the icicles and get yourself over to the happy hour (4-7 p.m.) at CommonWealth which includes a selection of local beer, 1/2 price selections of wine, and 1/2 off grassfed burgers (Wednesdays) that are out of this world.

For a complete rundown of what's available, check out the review written by our friends over at Sustainable in the City.

Dino

A menu planned around weekly finds at the Dupont Farmers Market and meats and seafood from all natural and sustainable sources. Those are just a few reasons to love Dino in Cleveland Park.

Want more? How about an amazing happy hour from 5:30-7 p.m. (Sunday-Fridays) featuring free antipasti and 25 percent off drinks. Oh, and bartender Scott is a master mixologist and will help you find the perfect glass to accompany your meal.

Poste Brasserie

We've written about Poste's sustainable practices before. This time, we're all about the deal. Next time you find yourself killing time before an event at the Verizon Center, stop by from 4 to 7 p.m. (Monday-Friday) and enjoy $5 glasses of red and white wine, $5 beer, and truffled frites for just $5.

Radius Pizza

This Mount Pleasant eatery was recently bought by former Poste Brasserie employees Todd and Nicole Wiss. Although they still serve pizza, the menu now focuses on local and organic ingredients and more upscale fare. Happy hour is 5-7 p.m. and on Wednesdays you get a free bottle of vino with the purchase of a large pizza and appetizer or two entrees and an appetizer.

Redwood

Tucked away in Bethesda Row, Redwood serves a seasonal menu that showcases the best mid-Atlantic ingredients. Meats, cheeses, produce, and seafood are naturally-raised, organic, or sustainable whenever possible and are sourced from local growers.

A thoughtful wine list features some organic wines and small production vintners who practice sustainable viticulture. Belly up to the 75-seat white-marble bar and treat yourself to $4-$5 food and drink specials Monday - Friday from 4 to 7 p.m.
