It seems quite easy to make grilled kebabs?all you need is skewers, an open flame, and hunks of meats. However, it?s remarkable how well the chefs at Kabob Bazaar prepare their tasty, charred chunks of swordfish, salmon, lamb, and ground sirloin year after year, as they celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2014. Alongside their namesake cuisine, other Persian eats, such as stuffed grape leaves and beef-tongue sandwiches, which are served on baguettes from the eatery?s tandoor oven, meet diners for lunch or dinner. For dessert, guests might sample the housemade baklava or two scoops of housemade ice cream?flavored with rose water and saffron. All of the food is served in a casual dining area that features yellow walls, caf? chairs, exposed brick, and a bar adorned with three shiny, silver samovars filled with steaming Persian tea.
Though devoutly British in name, Union Jack's British Pub is actually a transatlantic blend of both English and American conventions. Inside the expansive space, stone walls and a fireplace bear a distinctly European feel, though HD plasma TVs and projection screens broadcast games of hockey and American football. The food menu retains a similar dichotomy, offering up options such as Maryland crab cakes, fish and chips, and Caribbean jerk chicken sandwiches. The two nations fully unite at the handsome wooden bar, where guests can sip on one of 16 drafts, ranging from Fuller's London Porter to state-sourced Samuel Adams. Should cultural clashes persist, patrons can retire to the billiards room after their meal to settle disputes over the proper pronunciation of "aluminum."
With two elevated plasma televisions, sleek beige furniture, and a dining room doused in golden light, Potomac Restaurant is not just a place to grab a quick bite to eat. It's a sophisticated setting for sticking around and enjoying the company of family and friends. Whether staying upstairs at the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel or breezing in for an elegant breakfast, visitors can savor the New American flavors conjured up by the restaurant's award-winning chef, who keeps plates parading out of the kitchen until the late evening. Sidle up to the full-service bar for a burger while watching the game, or share a touching moment with your stomach by devouring a romantic, heart-shaped omelet.

We were named the Best Sports Bar in Washington DC by InTheCapital in April 2014.
A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.
While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.
Inside The Salsa Room, Latin artists such as Marc Anthony, Oscar D'León, and Gilberto Santa Rosa croon to diners pouring over a menu of steak and seafood dishes. Drawing on influences from Latin America and the Caribbean, the club's chefs construct a menu bursting with spicy, flavorful ingredients like a piñata full of jalapeños. Chorizo adds a splash of flavor to breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes, creating taste-bud-tempting fare such as the house specialty guiso de garbanzos con chorizo—a blend of chickpeas, beef, and spanish chorizo in a tomato-based creole sauce. On Wednesday at 8 p.m., salsa and bachata dance instructors take to the floor to lead patrons in the rhythmic steps and sly glances that compose Latin choreography.
