Washington Post dining critic Tom Sietsema declares Toyland his favorite new bar. Saying "I dig the 60s vibe, mixed crowd, GREAT drinks." Toyland is in the process of rolling out their full dining menu. In the meantime, they are your go-to spot for a pre or post-dinner drink after a meal at Ethiopic (401 H St), which is the next spot to watch for critical acclaim.
Recently opened restaurants, Liberty Tree (1016 H St) and Ethiopic (401 H St) now have their own DonRockwell.com threads (Liberty Tree) and (Ethiopic) are receiving high marks from the extremely selective foodies over there. Foodie Extraordinaire Don Rockwell has them rated at the top of his area dining guide (subscription required), above all other prior H Street establishments.
Finally, Councilmember Tommy Wells kicked off his re-election campaign to a packed house at Sova on Saturday night. Wells touted his support for the coming-soon streetcars and other livable, walkable community efforts to a warm reception.
