    Brussels sprouts! One of the few places on 14th you can usually sneak into on a weekend evening

  • Colette S.

    I was going to say the filet mignon special was amazing and a must have...and then I had the shrimp and polenta....soooo good, one of the best things I've eaten in awhile. Skip the mac and cheese

    Quaint lounge right off of U St. The happy hour specials are decent and the drinks pack a punch.

    This place is so much fun! The 90's and 2000's music wasn't really doing it for me though.

    Thank you Beth!!

    Christina Ferreira · August 15, 2013

    Make sure to get the truffle grits! To die for...

    Truffle fries at happy hour are pretty good. Sadly neither the lentils nor the green beans are vegetarian, and the black bean hummus is disappointing.

    There is a great amazon local deal going on right now for this place. We loved every dish we tried. Especially like how vegan & gluten free friendly they are

    Becca McSweeney · July 21, 2013
  • Just W.

    Bottle service is worth it. No tanks, cut off tees, or sandals - damn shame. Fun playlist on weekends.

    The service is good the food average!!!!

    Perfect brunch portions. Get the short rib hash and truffle grits as a side.

    Some creepy chicks here.

  • Natalie S.

    Green beans are far too soy saucy but cooked very nicely!

    Natalie Sayth · March 30, 2013
  • Jason A.

    I like the decor - it's sort of a goth diner motif.

    Jason A · March 30, 2013
  • Cameron H.

    Order anything. All the food is damn good here.

    Cameron Hernandez · March 29, 2013

    Be sure to check out the dance floor upstairs after dinner. Awesome DJ's and awesome vibe!

    Tanner S · March 16, 2013
  • Tanner S.

    Get the brussel sprouts! Delish

    Tanner S · March 16, 2013
  • Dara F.

    Yes, the DJs here change the music every thirty seconds, but it's a fun place to go dancing with a great, graffiti-y vibe.

    Dara Fisher · December 26, 2012

    Awesome and great service!

    The bartenders are nice and make a delicious Moscow Mule!

    Shrimp and grits! Yummy! Minus ham. Still tres delicieux!

  • Shikha B.

    Pretty good brunch, but found the dark lounge decor & cramped booths not so appealing on a sunny Sunday morning. French toast benedict was delish, but may require an extra 2 hrs at gym afterwards!

    Old friends, drinks, nice atmosphere, and food; I enjoyed myself:)

    Try the Lunenburg Sausage & Mussels - In-freakin-crediable

    Darlene Powell · June 3, 2012
  • Darlene P.

    Try the Asiago And Truffle Grits - Mmmmmmm. Perfect companion for the Mussels!!

  • Anna J.

    The "Pearfect Martini" (Grey Goose Pear , Orchard Pear Cordial, St. Germaine, Champagne) was beautifully crafted. Very light + delicious. Highly recommend. Great DJs, too. Loved the old skool hip-hop.

    Duck salad to die for

    Great DJ on Fri. & Sat. Nights upstairs but get in the door before 11pm to make it worth it. Otherwise wait gets loooong.

    Tim Hyooeeedeweylouie · May 18, 2012

    Thursday open bar 9-10pm.

    Awesome short ribs

    Raphael David "Rico" · May 12, 2012
  • Rochelle

    Hmmm long ass line and over crowded upstairs...nice DJ but not worth it....don't bother on a Sat night
