  • Biergarten Haus
    Standing beneath the German flags fluttering outside with the two-story timber structure of Biergarten Haus looming overhead, one might feel transported to the streets of a small Bavarian village. Inside, the head of an elk looks down at glasses full of more than 25 German lagers and weizens that draw from one of the largest selections of German beer in the area, while warm, doughy pretzels provide what the Washingtonian describes as an "excellent drinking snack" to pair with authentic German schnitzel, sausages, and potato pancakes. Old world meets new with 16 TVs airing sporting events inside the bar, which accommodates up to 400 patrons. Each day, wood burns within the large fireplace and the outdoor fire pits, warming visitors during the fall and winter. Climb the stairs to the rooftop beer garden?one of the largest German beer gardens in DC, and lauded as one of DC?s best by the Washington Post?where tables made of repurposed barrels cluster together underneath cool-water misters. Out back, a second beer garden populated by long, rustic tables is open for year-round Oktoberfest celebrations, and groups can clink glasses to celebrate birthdays or holidays.

  • Ulah Bistro
    Owner Med Lahlou took the U from U Street and combined it with the beginning of his last name and a restaurant he owned named Tunnicliff's to form Ulah Bistro, according to the Washington Post. Ulah's chefs, who have more than 20 years of culinary experience, handcraft American cuisine, pleasing palates from coast to coast to the pizza-laden streets of New York and back. Fresh seafood steers the menu ocean-side, with fresh shrimp, scallops, and calamari enlivening linguine, and seared tuna and Atlantic salmon sweeping up the hearty new york strip steak in their currents. In the eatery?s brick oven, golden-brown pizzas sport combinations such as Ulah?s signature medley of crab, tomatoes, olive oil, and parmesan. Alternatively, a make-your-own option lets pizza-lovers personalize pies with vine-ripened tomatoes to reflect their rosy cheeks, or sun-dried tomatoes to reflect their third-degree sunburns.
