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 […]

Iron Gate Reopens Tonight With Chef Anthony Chittum at the Helm

It’s been closed for three years, but the Iron Gate—one of Washington’s oldest restaurants—reopens tonight for dinner. It took new owner Neighborhood Restaurant Group, which also owns Bluejacket, Birch & Barley, GBD, and others, a few months longer than expected to restore the shuttered space. But dining veterans should immediately recognize the wrought iron gates […]

Wine Drinkers Welcome at The Arsenal at Bluejacket, Opening Today

Putting together the wine list at a brewery might seem like a futile task. After all, who orders a glass of chardonnay when there are more than 20 craft beers made onsite?

Eating Viral: How Doughnuts, Ramen, Tacos, and Other Food Trends Sweep D.C. Restaurants

Three years ago, two groups of people in the same place had the same idea at the same time: Hey, why don’t we open a gourmet doughnut shop? The owners of Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken and Neighborhood Restaurant Group’s GBD (Golden Brown Delicious) knew nothing of each other’s plans, or that people would be […]

Erik Bruner-Yang has earned plenty of praise for his Taiwanese-style ramen since opening Toki Underground in 2011, but if you linger long enough at the bar of his hip noodle shop on H Street NE, you begin to notice how the chef relies on much more than broth to blur the senses. Foreign songs in […]
