PoP Preview – Mockingbird Hill Opening this Friday in Shaw

1843 7th Street, NW

Back in February we learned of Derek Brown’s (Passenger, Columbia Room, Hogo) plans to open Mockingbird Hill in the renovated storefront at 1843 7th Street, NW. This is the sherry and ham bar. I was fortunate to be invited to a preview party and sip some sherries and taste some ham. And take some photos of course:


It’s a relatively narrow space dominated by a huge bar that runs nearly the length of the space. Though there was one table in the very back. When you visit, it’ll be important to remember that this is def. a bar and not a restaurant. Having said that, the hams were so freaking good.

Jerry Zawacki carves off a slice from one aged two and a half years.

Lots more photos after the jump.

Ham hangs like a piece of art

Long bar

I’m salivating just looking at this and remembering how it tasted

Also delicious

Did I mention it comes from a keg?
