We got there as soon as the restaurant opened because we had evening plans and there were already people waiting. It had a very lively bar scene. We had salmon, meat loaf and "brick" chicken dishes. The salmon and meat loaf were very good. The...More

Decided last minute to meet some friends in DC on a Friday night, and this place had good reviews and...options for reservations on Open Table! Large dining room so it makes sense. Food was good, had to pay for bread which is not very American...More
