Went on a Friday night prior to an event at the Kennedy Center. Friday appears to be for dining only during the dinner rush. Incredible and slightly overwhelming beer menu. Food was creative and tasty. We had the cauliflower which was amazing, the short rib which was rich and succulent, and the pork belly flat bread which had great flavors, but the flat bread itself could use more attention. Service and ambiance was great, middle of the road as far as value in DC.

We dined at Birch & Barley for New Years Eve and had a four course meal with beer pairing. Everything was OUTSTANDING. The food was incredible, portions were generous, and the beer pairings were thoughtfully selected and presented. Definitely will be returning for a normal dining experience!
