Big, brassy, and teeming with life, District Commons is a casual, contemporary, American tavern that anchors Foggy Bottom. Its open floor plan encompasses a cozy lounge area, massive bar and a multitude of dining tables strung along soaring windows. At its heart, just beyond the icy swath of raw bar and glowing open oven, is the exposed kitchen where chef Jeff Tunks creates innovative fare from organic, local ingredients. Favorites like Brick Pressed Chicken and Mussels share the menu with rotating selections of Domestic Hams with Biscuits. Other all-American treats like Pretzel Bread served with Beer Mustard Butter, Root Beer Floats and Funnel Cakes add to the fun. In keeping with its bustling style, District Commons offers late night “Staff Meals” of classic favorites like Nana Sue’s Meatloaf and Chicken Fried Steak. Nearly one hundred different small batch beers, twenty on tap, offer something refreshing for everyone.
