Foggy Bottom institution Tonic at Quigley’s has recently seen a serious upgrade that makes us want to tiki. They’ve opened a garden patio in addition to a new awning with fans and heat lamps to cover its existing outdoor sidewalk space.

The summer garden patio is removed from the street and offers more of a peaceful setting with wooden picnic tables and a view of actual, real life grass. It’s a nice space to enjoy the beautiful weather (when that actually happens) without sitting right on a sidewalk.


The patio includes a full bar and will be featuring Tiki Tuesdays in the summertime. If you’re hungry, you can look for typical bar food—coconut fried shrimp, pot stickers, fried spring rolls, etc. Bacon wrapped pineapple might even make an appearance. And don’t forget about Tonic’s tater tots. Those tots make us oh so happy.

They loved their lunch so much they bought the restaurant. Three decades later, there are 1,200 Nando’s PERi-PERi restaurants spread across five continents—including more than 30 U.S. locations in and around Washington, DC, and Chicago, with many more U.S. cities to come. PERi-PERi is the hero in each of our restaurants, where millions of Nando’s fans feast on our PERi-PERi chicken, marinated for 24 hours and grilled over an open flame. So now you can get the flavor, fire and passion of PERi-PERi in our restaurants or take it wherever you go with our sauces available in your local grocery store.
