A new gastropub, The Gryphon, is set to open just off of Dupont Circle on Connecticut Ave.

The menu will include gator bites (made with Sriracha mayo), grilled cheese and tomato soup, crawfish mac-n-cheese and barbacoa tator tots con queso (made with jack cheese, cotija, green onions, radishes, crema & pickled jalapeños). The bar offers over 30 bottled beers, and a few wines as well.

It’s aiming for a “pub-meets-posh” vibe with its wooden floors and furniture, animal heads, and engraved plate metal ceiling tiles.  And by the way, the Gryphon opens its doors just in time for one of Washington’s preeminent spring sports crazes: March Madness 2013. The Gryphon’s fully-integrated media system – including 31 televisions – ensures that sports fans catch every game possible.
