Policy Launches New Dinner and Cocktail Menus at 14th and T St, NW

1904 14th Street, NW

From a press release:

“Four years ago when Policy opened its doors at the corner of 14th and T Streets, NW, there weren’t a lot of other dining or nightlife choices on the street. Today it’s a very different scene, with a flourish of new cafes, restaurants and bars that add to the critical mass and strong draw to 14th street in mid-city. To capture the attention of the legions of diners and nightlife seekers, Policy has revamped its dinner and cocktail menus. The new offerings set the tone for a new attitude that embraces the creativity and excitement of 14th street as a dining destination, with new appeal for guests from all over the city, and the region.

“Feedback from our guests is always very valuable, and we know it’s important to evolve our concept and improve on every part of the guest experience. That’s what has truly inspired our new food and cocktail menus,” offered General Manager Tiffany Penn. “I’m really pleased with what our culinary team has done and look forward to sharing the new menu with DC diners.”

At center is a new dinner-minded menu, prepared with only fresh and authentic ingredients, scratch made sauces and original recipes that bring together vibrant and diverse flavors. The culinary team at Policy has increased the number of plates overall, adding more vegetarian options, with a couple new vegan dishes as well.

The signature and popular Lamb and Brisket Slider items remain on the menu, and are the foundational dishes in this expanded category, which now includes five new options with something for every palate. These include: a Maryland inspired Crab Cake; Sambuca Blackened Red Fish; a “Not so Traditional” BLT; an Argentinean inspired version and Lobster Slider. A variety of seasonal salads have also debuted, with choices like the Triple Fried Brie and Grilled Peach Salad, and the Stacked Heirloom Tomato Salad – each of which is ‘must try’ items while the bounty of the season is available for the kitchen. The salads are also nice complimentary dishes to new larger meat and seafood share plate dishes, like Marinated Skirt Steak with Mexican Street Corn and Black Pepper-Garlic Lamb Ribs drizzled with a Sweet-Soy Glaze.

Behind the bar, Policy tapped the talent and noted skill of top DC Mixologist and consultant, JP Caceres. Caceres enhanced the existing cocktail program and bar menus with pre-prohibition style offerings, using classic craft bar techniques to bring out the best of fresh ingredients, hand-squeezed juices, unique garnishes, as well as house made syrups and bitters. Working from the signature favorites like the Kentucky Ninja, the Fuego and the Black Manhattan cocktails that Policy guests love, the list now includes a wider variety of spirits and uncomplicated drinks that will appeal to more guests. The seasonal summer cocktail list also features signature punches, which will change regularly.

The menu is available Tuesday –Saturday starting at 5pm daily, for enjoyment in the dining room, at the bar or multiple outdoor patios. Happy Hour specials are also offered Tuesday – Saturday, 5-7pm.”
