Ted's Bulletin
American | Capitol Hill
66 reviews

'This Capitol Hill diner (on Barracks Row near Eastern Market) is a clever nod to a bygone era. Owners Mark and Ty Neal--also behind D.C.'s Matchbox restaurants--named the joint after their father, a West Virginian who was the unofficial "cook of the neighborhood." The old-timey throwback feels like the real deal here; art deco details, like carved marble door frames and metal air vents, are salvaged from the Philadelphia Civic Center circa 1928. Tables--salvaged former doors--are set with folded dish rags and a newspaper-like menu that features comfort food classics such as milkshakes, meatloaf and grilled cheese with tomato soup. Breakfast items such as short stack pancakes and home-made pop tarts are served all day. '- Lauren Sloat at Citysearch

A set of turntables stand by the front door, as if waiting for a passing DJ to set them in motion.

Hawk was the venerable meeting place where both sides of our brain got together, politically. Since 1969 the arguments ebbed & flowed, and eventually everyone just moved on to drinking and laughing together. The quintessential American "dive bar". The next chapter was a ground up 15 month renovation under new owners in 2013. 45 years later, we honor the tradition of the original ethos and, even late at night, "dive" to that legacy. Yet we think that the Hawk is ready to move on from "69... make our own mark...honor the past...make it ours. The menu looks to our heritage, and celebrates it with Real Food. Our food comes from farms and ranches that do it old school, like Mother Nature intended. We serve free range birds from Fredricksburg, as well as hormone and antibiotic free beef from Creekstone Farms. Great ingredients like Duroc Pork allow us serve up true American Pub fare that satisfies without the fuss. Luncheon, Supper and Live Bluegrass Brunch on Sunday.

Trademark Drink + Eat
American | Alexandria
21 reviews

Trademark is the neighborhood bar for a remarkable neighborhood. With a nod to our close friends at the U.S. Patent and Trade Office, we take our inspiration from the innovators whose once daring ideas set the standard.

Then knowing exactly what the standard is, Trademark enjoys nothing better than tweaking it. Someone else had the brilliant idea to combine pork with beans, macaroni with cheese and gin with vermouth. We simply came up with a way to make you think you’re tasting them for the first time.

The mixologists behind our bar program understand that some drinks are made to forget a hard day, others to foster inspiration, and still others to toast old friends and instant acquaintances. We also noticed that good things happen when the atmosphere is properly stimulating. You’ll find the mood at Trademark as comfortable as it is inventive.
