829 Upshur Street, NW

From a craigslist ad:

“We focus on welcoming neighbors and guests from around the city with an increasingly vegetable-forward menu as well as a craft cocktail program.

Lead Bartender:

1) Minimum two years bar experience in a craft cocktail environment
2) Ability to work with and manage colleagues to anticipate guest’s needs
3) Basic understanding of spirits and cocktails
4) Must desire to learn more about restaurant operations and leadership
5) Must be available full time
6) Interest in literature is a plus

Also interesting to note the “increasingly vegetable-forward menu”.

    This is one of my favorite places for drinks in the neighborhood. What a great spot! Hope they are successful in recruiting more awesome bartenders.

    Looking forward to lots more good places on Upshur!

    Love this place. Would really really love it if they had slightly better food. Looking forward to the new menu!!

    • Does that mean that their menu is a) too vegetable forward or b) not vegetable forward enough?

        there’s like two green things on it… :( but i love the location and the drinks are great….but every time I go there it’s always something….

    Did they fix their ventilation issue? The last time I was in it seemed like they were operating without a vent hood in the kitchen. The place was full of acrid smoke that would burn your eyes after a while.

    I like that they do classic cocktails really well, and unlike a lot of bars in town, they aren’t trying to out-nerd each other with weird concoctions. I hope that doesn’t change.

    Nice! Back in Sept I had the squash dish they added with the recent menu tweak, and it was amazing. I am not a vegetarian but I will get it every single time I go now. Whomever crafted that has some goooooood veggie mojo.
