Check out The Heights. Just opened up in Columbia Heights; same owners as Merkado, Logan Tavern, and Grillfish. Great food, pretty nice chill place.

What's a good bbq place in the area? I'm tempted to try Old Glory in Georgetown, but I don't want to fall into a tourist trap.

No 2 Amy's references? Used to go to the CP one all the time, but haven't been there in a while. Like the pizza a lot, but I'm more of a PP fan myself.

The pizza is entirely secondary, to me.

I know, I know, beer snobs are just fat bored white guys, but still...

Also, abc, you need to get out of georgetown once in awhile.

A little old, but I just caught this post. If you're on U Street, try The Saloon, easily my favorite bar in DC. Great for conversation, friendly staff, decent pub-style food (try the turkey reuben), and completely without pretense aesthetically. Which is good, because it's a great place for beer snobs (they advertise on the menus that they don't serve martinis). Mostly a German selection, which is great, because everywhere else seems to be so Belgian heavy. The Urbock is their signature beer--one per customer, since it is so difficult to brew. Be warned, the bar closes for the month of August because the owner goes out of the country to build houses for Habitat for Humanity.

Another awesome bar further toward Adams-Morgan is Russia House, which is the only place I've ever been to that serves Baltika beer from St. Petersburg. #8 is a wheat that is a really fantastic summer drink. The food looked great there as well.

From the guy who suggested ignoring ghulkhan earlier in the thread, I think that he nailed this one. Rocklands smells wonderful, and I've given it numerous chances, but I've never had anything there that was beter than ok.

I haven't found really good BBQ in DC, but the least bad has been Capitol Q down by the MCI Center.

chill out, guys.

I tried Bangkok Joe's the other day...wasn't very impressed...I just had the pad thai and it was terribly bland. The portion size was good for what I paid ($23ish for the dish). The appetizers which were about $12 IIRC were TINY. Overall, not worth it.

I've been to Old Glory once...IMO, it wasn't spectacular, but it was good enough. Plus, it's not that far from where the OP lives
