DC: H Street

I spent most of last week on Capitol Hill for meetings and a USAID training, luckily surrounded by DC-savvy locals that knew their way around the restaurant/bar scene. H street was a healthy walk from Capitol Hill but well worth it. From what they said, the area has really transformed over the last year. Now, it's re-paved, revamped, and revitalized. We started with a dinner at Sticky Rice, a Japanese sushi joint that even serves tater tots. My favorite was the Sticky Balls, a combo sushi roll with everything on it. Sooo good.


Then we headed down the street and passed a lot of places I want to eventually check out, like Fruit Bat (a central/south american cocktail bar), The Rock and Roll Hotel (Warpaint was playing but I missed it), and the Country Club (an astro-turf decorated bar with indoor mini golf). We landed at the Biergarten Haus. To a Milwaukeean, this seemed like a home away from home. I thought it was a great hangout, it had more of a Bavarian feel and better beer selection than Old German Beer Hall in Milwaukee. They had hammerschlagen, but no, I did not see a shot-ski.
