3. Little Red Fox (Chevy Chase)

4. Red Derby (North Columbia Heights/Petworth)
5. Black and Orange (U Street)
6. Blue 44 (Chevy Chase)
7. Black Salt (Palisades)
8. Black Jack (Logan Circle)
9. Red Rocks (Columbia Heights, H Street, NE)
10. Bluejacket Brewery (Navy Yard)
11. Sweetgreen (Georgetown, all over)
12. Orange Spoon (West End)
13. Yellow House (East of the River by Minnesota Ave Metro)
14. Silver Spork (closing soon in Capitol Hill)
15. Red Light (opening soon in Logan Circle.)

    I think that establishments with two colors (or more) in their name should be given preference over those with just one, but still rank below those with a color and an animal.

    Greene Turtle, Redline. The suburbs open up places like Green Pig and Indigo Landing.

  • On the Hill

    Black Finn? Pearl Dive? Pearl is technically the gem in this case, I think, but perhaps it gets bonus points for multiple definitions?

        I thought I double checked them all and there I go missing one! I just threw the closed ones in out of boredom.

    I submit Cobalt, if it hasn’t already been said.

    On another note, why is the Silver Spork closing?
