City Paper highlights Liberty Tree as one of top 50 for 2010 Dining Guide

The City Paper recently issued their 2010 Dining Guide of the 50 Most Fascinating Restaurants of the Year. Popular new H Street addition, Liberty Tree (1016 H St) was included. City Paper Food Columnist Tim Carman especially recommends the lobster roll, the lobster and scallop pot pie, the roasted littleneck clams, and the fried Chatham cod sandwich. You can't go wrong with any of those items.

H Street neighbor Capital City Diner (1050 Bladensburg Rd) was also included in the feature. Carman explains his affection for Capital City Diner as "Sometimes I love a place just because of its history or its significance to a neighborhood or its atmosphere."

Look for Liberty Tree to begin construction on their summer garden patio alongside the east wall of the property soon. They are also in the process of rolling out a newly expanded wine list with some additional higher end offerings.

Update: Taylor Gourmet is also featured and highlighted for their awesome roast pork sandwiches.


  1. What is the deal with Bier Garten? I have been there twice on two different weekends and they only have two beers on tap!

    For a venue looking to style themselves after famed german drinking establishments, this is unacceptable.

    Has anyone heard anything about why this is? Are they having troubles importing other beers?

  2. @5:12 I am not sure when you visited Biergarten Haus, but it's not accurate to say they only have a couple of beers on tap. They had a dozen beers available on tap this past weekend.
