The menu will feature fancy takes on typical beer bar food such as fried pig tails and Jucy Lucys (molten cheese filled burgers), as well as pastas made with spent brewing grains.

Uncommon in Brookland

The owner of Smith Commons is opening Smith Public Trust in late 2013 at 3514 12th Street NE (map), as reported by Washington City Paper. The new restaurant will be open all day and host local musicians in the evenings. It will serve small plates, 12 drafts, and a selection of wines and cocktails.
