Welcome to BYT’s newest “hot damn, how could I live without this” column, Eating Out. We’ll be highlighting one food or booze special event every night of the week. From the best happy hours in the city to the uber expensive $500 per person tasting menus, there is something good to eat or drink every single night in this city and we want to help you find it. And yes, we get the joke.
For the low low price of $35, Brookland’s Finest is serving up a menu jam packed with delicious foods and paired beer cocktails from Republic Restoratives and Denizens Brewing. Expect foie gras and prime rib to make an experience. For the price, it’s an insane steal. When was the last time you went out and ordered three drinks, three courses and only paid $35?

Restaurant Week might be over, but EatWell is still doing it up with a happy hour special that is going to save you some sweet cash. Head over to any of their restaurants to grab two cocktails and a small plate for $13. Grab a friend or go alone, regardless you’re getting a pretty sweet deal.
A gypsy brewery doesn’t own its own facilities; it contract brews on other people’s systems. (That’s the short explanation.) One place that Stillwater brews is Two Roads Brewing’s baller state-of-the-art facility in Connecticut. Two Roads also contract brews for other gypsy brewers, like Evil Twin, in addition to making its own very solid Two Roads beer.
On Friday, City Tap House will pour beer from all three of these brands as part of their Gypsy Brewer Night. I have no idea what particular beers they will be, but you can’t go wrong with this trio. – Phil Runco
Last year, DC Beer Week kicked off with BrewHaha. This year, it brings up the rear of DC Beer Week. Times change, man! (Just kidding, I read no significance into this.)
Whenever they host it, the Old Ebbitt event is just a good, old-fashioned craft beer and tasty food festival. $75 gets you all you can drink (from over ten different breweries) and eat (from an impressive line-up of restaurants that includes Red Apron, Red Hen, Sixth Engine, Smoke and Barrel, and Right Proper). In other words, you will be uncomfortably full in the best possible way within one hour (if you’re anything like me). – Phil Runco
We love Short Eats Ten Tigers pop up, but more often that not, we don’t have time to stop over and grab some roti during the week. The restrictive hours make it hard for us to get our fill, which is why we were excited to find out that Short Eats will be taking over Qualia Coffee on Sunday. We’re big fans of the sausage and vegetarian versions, but feel free to follow your heart.
Your week looks delicious.
