The Alibi, formerly My Brothers’ Place, Finally Opens near Union Station/The Capitol

237 2nd Street, NW

After a slight delay The Alibi has opened in the My Brothers’ Place space not far from Union Station. Their website says:


Come try the new food on the block. Fish and Chips, Meat Pies, Crab Cakes, Banoffee Pie and More.

You can see their full menu here.

As a nod to the history of Capital Hill, “The Alibi” is inspired by British traditions and influenced by local American products. The menu features slow roasts, fresh meat pies, fried fish, and other comfort foods made in house with age old techniques including braising, smoking, baking and pickling.

With restored exposed brick, wood floors and stained glass chandeliers, “The Alibi” provides an escape from the hectic, fast paced world right outside its doors. Simple honest products as well as personable and stellar service give everyone from Senators to maintenance workers a reason to find a good alibi.”

A reader says the liquor license is still pending but should go through in May.
