The Many Lives of Dupont’s Iron Gate, One of D.C.’s Oldest Restaurants

Chef Tony Chittum wasn’t looking for history, just fresh ingredients. Before reopening the Iron Gate in Dupont Circle, Chittum found a grapevine on the restaurant’s back patio. He started pickling the leaves and using the grapes in an Italian mustard sauce. Which means he’s now doing the same thing that Nabih Saah was doing at […]

It’s been closed for three years, but the Iron Gate—one of Washington’s oldest restaurants—reopens tonight for dinner.

Brew Hub: New Brewery Bluejacket Is a Laboratory for Food-Centric Beers

The folks behind Bluejacket want to make one thing clear: It’s not a brewpub.

Brewpubs, Engert says, have long […]
