Amidst the emerging culinary epicenter of diverse restaurants in the historic Penn Quarter neighborhood of Washington, DC, Penn Commons is a rough-hewn yet chic American tavern on 6th & H Streets.<br /><br />To craft its menu of food and drinks united by one common philosophy - American sensibility joined with American seasonality - Chef Jeff Tunks drew on his first name partnerships with the best local farmers and artisanal purveyors...or he just makes it himself.<br /><br />Burnished copper lighting, leather sling chairs and salvaged woods provide a warm footing for this showcase of American tavern food at its best.

"Our meals (trout and meatloaf) were quite good, but the noise level from the bar was incredible. We got that booth the farthest away from the bar, sat next to each other, and still had to raise our voices to hear each other. We had to ask our nice server to repeat herself several times. But we were there at 6 pm on a Friday....."
