Au Pied is long gone. It’s now a Five Guys. Can you believe that? One of the few places where you could go and have a beer next to people from all walks of life. My father lived here in DC in the mid 1960’s and a couple of the bartenders were from his hometown in West Virginia.
Billy Martin’s Tavern is great for bar food and it’s also okay for brunch. They have a hot brown which was good but far too rich for me. I opt for the Welsh Rarebit in the winter.
