new wrap around bar nearly completed at The Good Silver on 11th between Park and Monroe
From a press release:
“The team behind Ivy and Coney (Josh Saltzman, Chris Powers, and Adam Fry) and partner Carrie Dzwil, are excited to announce their newest bar, The Good Silver (@goodsilverdc on twitter), at 3410 11th St. NW in Columbia Heights.
While we still believe hotdogs are a primary food group, The Good Silver will focus on simple seasonal ingredients, pickled veggies, cured meats and a certain banquet beer combo. Think local heirloom tomatoes in August, or strawberries in June, but when Winter arrives a BLT featuring tomato jam or rum punch spiked with a best-of-the-season strawberry shrub will be on the menu. We will also be adding some cutting-edge technology such as credit card machines, bar spoons, and level floors. What a time to be alive!
The Good Silver is all about getting the best out of life without having to pay an arm and a leg for it. Remember when you were a kid, and mom would break out the “good” plates, or grandma would take the plastic off the sofa and let you sit on the “good” part? It pays homage to a time when the everyday was elevated, simply by caring a little bit more. Don’t expect the finest forks or vintage China, but instead, a focus on customer service and quality ingredients for both drink and food. No need to dress up here; we welcome anyone who’d like to have a Manhattan in their footie-jammies.
The Good Silver was designed by The Knights Who Say Ni architecture firm and features a large reclaimed oak bar, wallpaper, and two shrubberies (one slightly higher than the other, with a little path between, and not too expensive). The space will feature 18 bar seats, a few tables, and a 16 person patio.
We look forward to welcoming everyone into our new home in the coming months.”
