Happy Hour @ 901

[ 0 ] January 11, 2013 |

photo 2The DC happy hour scene is massive.  Visiting a restaurant and hearing that they do not have a happy hour is analogous to visiting a place that is still Cash Only.  Who does that anymore?!?  Restaurant 901 joined the Renaissance Hotel in the summer of 2011 with a patio that was obviously born for happy hour.  Now I know what your thinking: why am I talking about a restaurant that opened in 2011 and its patio in the middle of winter??  JKGF is a blog about my adventures in dining and cooking so I stay true to the roots by sharing these experiences.

photo 3901 is one of my favorite happy hour destinations in the city because of three reasons: (1.) Plenty of space to sit and order drinks from the bar.  As I get older, fighting for elbow room is so not attractive after working 10 hour days. (2.) The drinks specials fit nicely with my budget.  The $5 red or white wine or $7 Brut is a deal in this town.  (3.)  The restaurant offers happy hour bites that actually taste good.  Often times I am disappointed by happy hour small plates because they are overcooked pieces of spring rolls but 901 does a good job at making the bites worth the calories.  My picks are the Hoisin Duck Rolls and Crab Cake Sliders.
