From a press release:

“Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG), founded by restaurateur and industry leader Danny Meyer whose portfolio features some of New York’s most beloved restaurants, bars, and cafes, has announced ​Anchovy Social​, the accompanying rooftop bar set to open atop the forthcoming Thompson Washington D.C. hotel at The Yards. The bar will open this winter in tandem with Roman-style seafood restaurant Maialino Mare, USHG’s first foray into fine dining outside of New York.

In line with Maialino Mare’s Italian concept, Anchovy Social’s beverage menu will highlight classic cocktails such as ​Aperol Spritz​, with innovative and seasonal takes on favorites such as the ​Seadog (tequila, grapefruit soda, Old Bay salt) and the ​Juice Box​ (vodka, cranberry shrub, Vermouth di Torino, rosemary). Additionally, large format cocktails that serve up to four will be offered seasonally, while regional beers will be available bottled and on tap.

Snacks and bites are the focus on the food menu, which will showcase the best of local seafood and fun twists on Italian antipasti. Guests can choose from ​Potato Chips Cacio Pepe​ to dips and tins of ​Smoked Trout ​and ​Anchovy and Stracchino​, to name a few. ​Seafood Towers​, shareable plates like ​Clams Casino​, heartier plates and sliders such as the ​Porchetta Melt​, satisfy all appetites.
