A blog for the Bloomingdale neighborhood in Washington, DC.
Early reviewLet me start by saying I have been awaiting this opening for quite some time and hope they succeed. Good points: eclectic beer list, attentive staff, tasty food. Bad points: overpriced $8 for 6 very small wings and $10 foe a burger that could not have been more than 1/4 lb is excessive. Fries, while hand-cut, were underdone and less than 10 per plate. I am hoping that the value/price ratio is due to opening night and trying to recoup investment. I will try again in a month or so.
I went this Sunday on the earlier-side (5-ish) and it was pretty hoppin'! We followed a young couple in and their new-born who left shortly after realizing there was no booth seating available. Beer was good but not cold enough for my taste. I'll order food next time. It'll be nice to see some older neighbors there, though. This Sunday it was mostly younger new-comers which is great, but I'd love for it to have a real neighborhood feel.It's a great place with indoor and outdoor seating. Can't wait for it to become a real hangout.
