Food.Fun.Stuff: Newbies

[ 0 ] October 27, 2009 |

“Everyday a Star is Born!” Well, here in the District everyday a restaurant is born. For us to be some pretty health conscience people, we sure do love to eat all that is good…and sometimes bad. Well, during the month of October, we are ushering in two newbies to the D.C. restaurant scene with many other openings on the calendar as the winter and spring months approach. Check it:

>Birch & Barley and Churchkey are now open and it’s all the buzz in the Districts Logan Circle. The newest members to the Virginia based Neighborhood Restaurant Group, B&B/Churchkey is the first of the popular restaurant group to cross that bridge into the District. You know the drill (*Primarily because we already told you…): The restaurant will be serving up tasty bites such as Vialone Nano Risotto with beets, beet greens and whipped goat cheese and Loin of Venison, with wild rice, “popped” cranberries and squash. Upstairs you can indulge in all the beer that your heart desires (*Not really our thing but hey, if you like it, we love it!). With over 555 different beers being served, you will not get bored with the options. It’s so funny that this is the first venture of the NRG in the District considering their presence is so conspicuous here, but that could be due to the fact that they dominate the Northern Virginia restaurant scene with over eight restaurants…

Birch & Barley and Churchkey
1337 14th st. NW

>The BGR The Burger Joint is now in Dupont. Good stuff. The BGR Joint in Maryland gained a lot of popularity due to its grill style burgers which tastes like they just came off your backyard grill. Just looking at the website has us salivating at the fact that we finally have one in the District (*Not that we were opposed to venturing to Bethesda, this is definitely one of our foodie stomping grounds…). We are going for the Wellington…what about you??
