DC is becoming home to many new beer gardens, but DC's newest beer house just opened up right in the heart of DuPont. Located at 1216 18th Street, next to Public Bar, Sauf Haus Bier Hall is a fantastic place to go with friends or coworkers for happy hour or even a fun dinner before heading out for a night on the town.

Dupont Circle's La Tomate recently introduced a new casual concept adjacent to its current space. It is surprising to admit that this was the first time I visited the establishment that originally opened in 1987.
