City Tap Room Philly’s Kitchen and Dining Room
In this week’s Top 5 Bites, find out what new Philly import is moving to D.C. as well as the location of a potential new steak frites corridor.
Tapping into Mt. Vernon
Another Philly export is joining the D.C. ranks. City Tap House will be opening at 901 I Street NW in mid-November, according to Barred in DC. The Philly location features 60 beers on tap, and the D.C. menu, courtesy of PoPville, shows that it will be serving a variety of brick oven pizzas, mussels, sandwiches, and forward looking comfort foods like monkfish osso bucco and duroc pork collar.
A Steakout in Barracks Row
Steak frites specialist Medium Rare is opening a second location at 515 8th Street SE, according to a tweet from Barracks Row Main St. It replaces Szechuan restaurant Fusion Grill, which is relocating to a new undisclosed spot. Medium Rare serves only steak frites and a selection of desserts. The restaurant will be coming into close competition with the recent Spike Mendelsohn’s steak frites spot, Bearnaise. No opening date has been announced.
Kalbi and pork belly at Honey Pig
Pigging Out in Germantown
Twenty-four hour Korean BBQ spot Honey Pig has opened a third location in Germantown at 19727 Frederick Road. It’s a go-to among many who want an extreme fix of beef and pork. A particular favorite among many diners is the chul pan, which can be requested with rice for a crusty fried rice of meat, seafood, and kimchee.
Moving to New Heights
Columbia Heights’ The Heights will be closing for five days and reopening on November 1 with a new food menu from new chef Kerry Tate and new beverage menu, according to Washingtonian. In preparation, it will be hosting a “closing” event with 50% off all day on October 27.
