Where To Eat Tonight: District Kitchen

DKslide
It's almost like District Kitchen, which opened earlier this month, went right down the checklist of things we love, crossing off every little to-do. Delicious dishes that take comforting flavors somewhere fancy? Check. A chic interior with exposed brick and flattering lighting? Check. Tasty craft cocktails and eco-friendly wine? You get where we're going with this. This totally date-worthy new restaurant in Woodley Park has us pegged.
The focus here is all about local, seasonal, sustainable cooking — but don't think hippies and hummus. Instead, expect fare like house-made black sea bass ravioli with spicy herb butter, duck leg confit with ginger-squash puree, and the amazing shirred eggs with potato-mushroom hash to appear on the rotating menu. The specialty cocktail list, overseen by a Room 11 alum, is concise but cool, designed to complement the restaurant's food. Our poison? Til' The Bitter End, made with aged dark rum, aperol, sweet vermouth, and mole bitters. This is definitely a go-to spot to hit up after a show at the Uptown or a when you're spending a weekend strolling around the National Zoo — sounds pretty perfect, right?
