City Tap House DC is located in the former 901 Restaurant space. You can see their dinner menu here.
Lots of details rom a press release:
“Owner Frank Falesto is giving DC foodies one more reason to dine at the highly anticipated restaurant City Tap House DC at 901 9th Street, NW, Washington, DC, 20001, adjacent to the new City Center. The beer centric restaurant will serve refined American pub fare for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch on Saturday and Sunday. City Tap House has also tapped Andy Farrell as Beer Director of its enticing program. Guests can anticipate over 40 beer lines and two beer engines which will afford the new restaurant the opportunity to feature over 60 different local, domestic and European craft beers available by the draft and bottle. A variety of seasonal and special edition releases will be available throughout the year. Prices range from $6 to $10 for draft and will vary by the bottle based on format, and for wine and cocktail fans, an international and eclectic selection of wine and handcrafted libations will also be available.
The wealth of great local and regional breweries gives City Tap House great sourcing opportunities for creating outstanding events, and for putting its philosophy on craft beer into motion. “The beer program is at the heart of what we offers our valued guests,” says Andy Farrell. “We want it to be approachable, unpretentious and community driven. We strive for our guests to have a well-rounded dining experience using beer and food to elevate each other. Dining at City Tap House should be about discovery and good times shared with good people.” (more…)

“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has announced the DC Streetcar construction team will implement intermittent closures of the eastbound and westbound lanes of H Street, NE between North Capitol Street, NE and 5th Street, NE starting on Friday, December 6, 2013 through Thursday, December 19, 2013. The closures are needed for the installation of overhead catenary system (OCS) and to complete the permanent traffic barrier at the Western Turnaround.
To mitigate traffic impacts, crews will attempt to maintain one direction of traffic; however, there will be occasional simultaneous eastbound and westbound closures. With the exception of a two-day period for the installation of contact wire (1/2 day closure in each direction), crews will attempt to limit the closures to one direction per day.
For any combination of closures, local traffic will be permitted access to/from the Union Station garage and Kaiser loading dock entrance. Traffic Control Officers (TCO) will be present to assist with pedestrian movements, to direct vehicles in and out of the garage, and to control traffic at H Street, NE and North Capitol Street, NE.
