Beuchert’s Saloon, Washington DC

Extracted from Mister Lester Goes To Washington. Buy yours here.

A new place with an old look, a restaurant where the food and drink are too high grade for it to really be called a saloon, but ignore the conceit. Order the burger “all the way,” with fried egg, bacon and cheddar, and you’ll find their attention to every detail rewarding indeed. Cocktails are well-balanced and a sensible portion. A standout is the Beltway Boy, a rye drink with bitter appeal.
