Bull Branch takes diners on a savory sojourn with an eclectic menu featuring flavors from around the world. Embark on the expedition with the chicken satay smothered with spicy peanut sauce and accompanied by cucumber salad ($10), or a panini kept warm by a topping of goat cheese, tapanade, and arugula ($7). Fish fans can nosh on the sesame soy-glazed salmon escorted by ginger-smashed sweet potatoes and lemony asparagus ($17), and beef eaters can chomp on the 10-ounce New York strip steak and hand-cut fries ($22). Concocted from fresh and local ingredients, the mouth-watering mélange of simple dishes and street classics allows voracious visitors to experience a variety of cultures without sneaking into the United Nations headquarters inside a cardboard box. Quaff a selection from the wine list or a seasonal drink at the lounge and bar area, which provides comfy seating and harmonious tunes for patrons looking to plan their next jewelry heist in an inviting setting.
The chefs at Bull Branch marry local and international ingredients in a menu of salads, shareable tapas, and entrees that strikes a balance between succinct and eclectic. Served in a intimately lit Bohemian setting that The Washington Post describes as "that perfect blend of casual and sophisticated, elegant and honky-tonk," dishes such as hummus, curries, and pulled pork harness the flavors of the Mediterranean and Middle East, Southeast Asia, and down-home America. Occasional live music in the evenings complements the pan-continental cuisine, as does a serving staff of UN delegates who, upon request, sprinkle borders of salt and pepper to delineate your entree and sides.
