    Vegetarians: limited options. They say farm to table but that's mostly meat (they butcher meat on premise). You can eat: mushroom risotto with capers, spring pea flatbread and all the great desserts.

    Not sure what the big deal is. Like the concept but the static menu bores me. Unsure of the freshness of the produce or food handling. I have always felt ill after eating there.

    Washingtonian says don't miss: Arctic-char tartare; charcuterie board; fig-and-prosciutto flatbread; bratwurst burger; honey-roasted duck breast; peanut-butter cheesecake; fried chicken and waffles.

    Following an overnight cooling, the mac and cheese sticks are cut info 3-1/4-inch-by-1-inch bricks, coated with garlic-infused panko bread crumbs, fired and served with a sweet tomato relish. Read more

    If you are a beer enthusiast you should select your own beers rather than go with the beer menu that is offered to go with the food.

    This is the most pretentious and over-priced place I've ever been to. The food was tasteless. The have an "ethos" that takes 15 mins to explain. Go upstairs to Churchkey instead.

    Inauguration drinking games! Sure the truffle mac & cheese and honey-glazed duck breast are also worth Instagramming, but it's mostly the 555 beers that keeps Birch & Barley a DC best. Read more

    One of my favorite brunches in the city. Reserve a table in advance and if space is tight call and ask to be placed at the Chef's bar overlooking the kitchen. The homemade donuts are a must.
