When I visited: Late September 2014.
What I had: Draft pint of Schlafly Kölsch, orange juice, coffee, and the Healthy Start breakfast for me; Mimosa, grapefruit juice, and the Scion Sunrise breakfast for my fiancé.
What I liked: No trouble getting seats despite an insanely busy brunch service, very good food at fair prices, efficient service (though not exactly welcoming), was happy to find one of the best North American-brewed Kolschs on tap, above average bottle list.
What I disliked: Extremely underwhelming atmosphere as the place was full of snooty and narcissistic Kardashian types at brunch, servers had an equally inflated sense of self importance, lack of space between tables made things feel a bit cramped, draft selection was decent but not even close to what I expected, unless they had something really special on tap I couldn’t see myself returning.
Would I go back? Probably not.
Overall Rating: 62
I’ve been here for a beer event as well as brunch on a weekend (not beer related, gasp). Nice small restaurant, with a nice little patio area that was pleasant in the late spring and summer. Food was tasty, beer selection is small, but usually has a few good taps. They do beer events, sometimes in conjunction with their sister restaurant Crios next door, from time to time that are worth checking out.
Pleasant few hours on the patio here recently, in the company of some old friends. Not the biggest selection in the world, but what’s here is fairly varied and one can also avail oneself of D.C.’s quirky distro loopholes (hello, Coffee Bender!).
Been here a few times and have enjoyed the bar area. Small bar area with some small tables in the bar area, can get a bit crowded during happy hour events but not as bad as more popular bars. Quality selection of drafts with some great gems frequently. Bartenders are attentive and quick. Food is pretty tasty from what I’ve tried.
