“We are opening a restaurant in the neighborhood part of Georgetown. The restaurant’s main focus is high quality tea and coffee service with plated desserts and light fares.

“On Wednesday, March 12, The Partisan debuts its reincarnation of the meat-centric restaurants that long dominated the dining scene in Washington. The Partisan is both physically and conceptually joined at the hip to Red Apron butcher shop, which opened just two weeks ago in Penn Quarter. The 100-seat restaurant and bar is a collaboration between Nathan Anda and Chef Ed Witt, who blend a whole-animal butcher sensibility and old world techniques with modern American cooking.
Underpinning The Partisan’s menu is a tireless commitment to sourcing that is at the core of Red Apron’s operation. All of the meats served at The Partisan are sustainably raised –many by local farmers that work with Red Apron exclusively and are Animal Welfare Approved.
Guests are encouraged to begin with a sampling of Nathan Anda’s handmade charcuterie products presented in the form of a check-the-box, a la carte menu. The rotating selection of approximately 30 items are broken in to flavor categories such as bright, spicy hot, smoky, rich & smooth, herbal & floral, etc. and cover a wide variety from dried salamis, pates, and rillettes to smoked sausages and 15 month-aged culatello. All charcuterie boards are served with freshly baked tigelles and accompaniments.
The Partisan’s main menu eschews traditional order-by-course offerings and is instead broken up by source or animal (beef, poultry, pork, and fish). Each section is composed of dishes in a range of portion sizes, aimed at encouraging sampling and exploration. The opening menu includes dishes such as Bolognese, with housemade pasta, guanciale and heart ragout, and lard toasted breadcrumbs; Braised Spanish Octopus with tomato, oregano, and fingerling potatoes; 120 Day Dry Aged Beef Carpaccio; and Corned Beef Belly with braised cabbage, grated pumpernickel, and pickled mustard seeds.The dishes range in size from small to medium and can be complemented with salads, slaws and vegetable sides.
Some select items are designed for the table to share, such as the Roasted Pig Head served with salsa verde, pickled peppers, and arugula & pig ear salad; the Rotissi-Fried Chicken, a brined and rotisseried chicken that is deep fried and served with honey hot sauce; and the Bollito Misto, a stew of cotechino, smoked heart, belly, pickled tongue, pork bone marrow and tenderloin with calabrian aioli.
To offer a touch of sweetness to the meal, Pastry Chef Tiffany MacIsaac has prepared creative twists on nostalgic favorites like the Snicker’s Terrine with peanut butter cheesecake, peanut caramel and chocolate glaze; Lemon Meringue Pie, a meyer lemon eclair, with torched swiss meringue and graham cracker crumbles and Fried Apple Pie with bacon, caramel, graham crumble, candied pecans and vanilla bean ice cream. A chef’s favorite the Fernet Ice Cream Float with ginger beer, lime zest, Fernet Branca ice cream and ginger molasses cookies is also a tempting finish.
On the beverage side, The Partisan is tapping the talents of a dream team of talented beverage experts: Brent Kroll, Jeff Faile and Greg Engert, making the 20+ seat bar a destination for wine, spirit and beer drinkers alike. (more…)
“Top Chef All-Stars Runner-Up Mike Isabella is opening a G location at Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals, in Southeast Washington, D.C. this season.

“People in this town are passionate about their food and passionate about their baseball. G at Nationals Park is a perfect fit,” said Chef Mike Isabella. “We’ll be serving our sandwiches made with the same top quality ingredients and freshly baked bread as our 14th Street location. I’m really excited to bring my best sandwiches to baseball fans. I think the G Chicken Parm is the perfect thing to enjoy while watching a game. ”
Isabella opened the original 14th Street location, G by Mike Isabella, a sandwich shop by day and tasting menu by night, in July 2013. G features classic Italian-American sandwiches along with pressed paninis, wood roasted sandwiches and specials created by prominent D.C. chefs. The menu at the newest addition to the G family will include Isabella’s take on the Italian deli classics, the Chicken Parm and Italian Hero, as well as his meatless Roasted Cauliflower sandwich and The Drewno, The Source executive chef Scott Drewno’s house made kielbasa sandwich created especially for G. Lamb Chili and peanut brittle will round out the menu.
G at Nationals Park will open for the Nationals Exhibition Game against the Detroit Tigers on March 29, and remain open throughout the season.”
You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
“As some of you have now heard, we want to confirm that the Pour House and Top of the Hill are closing at the end of April. We couldn’t have asked for a better ride and we want to express our sincere gratitude to the neighbors, patrons and staff who have become our extended family over the past 11 years. While our decision was a difficult one, we look forward to remaining a part of the Capitol Hill and DC community through Trusty’s and Star & Shamrock, and the soon-to-open Barrel and Compass Rose.
With that being said, we’ll save the goodbyes and salutations for a bit later—we still have a month and half left and we’re looking forward to one last March Madness and a great sendoff in April. More details about upcoming events will follow shortly.
Mark and Mike”
Ed. Note: The most recent long time Capitol Hill watering hole to close was Li’l Pub on Jan. 6th.
