From an email:

“The Pub & The People has just hired rising star sous chef Ben Schramm from one of DC’s top restaurants, Proof!

Schramm studied culinary arts at L’Academie de Cuisine in Gaithersburg, MD, and launched his culinary career at Proof, rising from salad station worker to executive sous in that time, working closely under executive chef Haidar Karoum. Schramm is thrilled to join the P&P team, and has big plans for the Pub’s menu, adding inventive food while still continuing the inclusive, neighborhood atmosphere. Schramm is excited to pair his love for his own local watering hole with his passion for creativity in cooking.”

    Exciting. That menu doesn’t look all that different though. Many of those items were definitely already on there.

      The menu will be changing slowly over time. Baby steps, Tsar!

        Excellent. I love you guys, so I didn’t mean that in a negative way. It was just more an observation. I am excited to see what the new chef comes up with!

    GREAT NEWS! The guys who own the place are super nice and there have been a few good things on the menu but to be honest with you the menu was getting a bit old. Looking forward to trying the new stuff…
