H Street C.C. to Mix Latin Tasting Menu with Wii

hpim2094_optGiven the rather tight conditions (and general mayhem) at H Street Country Club, the mini-golf/Mexican eatery has had trouble accommodating parties of eight or more. So the owners have devised what they're calling the Maxi Bar, which will be a private dining area where chef Pablo Cardoso can showcase his talents at creating South-of-the-Border  small plates.

The dining space, located on the ground floor near the kitchen, will accommodate small parties for a multi-course tasting menu not available anywhere else at H Street Country Club, says owner Joe Englert. Cardoso, who has worked previously at Cashion's Eat Place and Jackie's, will offer an ever-changing menu of Mexican and Latin American small plates, which the diners can pair with either wine or tequila.

And in keeping with H Street's concept, these private diners will also have access to their own Wii games of golf and tennis.

So when will the Maxi Bar open?

"June 2013," jokes Englert, a reference to H Street's endless delays.

Englert actually hopes to have the Maxi Bar open by September.
