American Ice Company

The exposed brick in this bar sets the mood for barbecue (on paper plates) and beer (in mason jars). Prepare for a packed room and a good time.

The Fainting Goat

Good for both brunch and dinner, this is a the perfect U Street spot when you’re looking for a tavern-like setting—whether you’re in the mood for nibbles, or grazing.

Right Proper Brewing Company

This is the hoppin’ place for hops in Shaw. As they say, they have beer for the soul and food for the belly. What more could you want?

Chaplin’s Restaurant

Inspired by the silent film star, this is far from a silent spot. With a unique menu, you can have anything from a classic cocktail to ramen and other Asian-inspired food.
