Located on bustling Washington Circle in the West End, District Commons is anchored by a monumental raw bar and an open hearth oven for flatbreads and savory tarts. A 'Pig Board' of ham and biscuits will showcase a selection of America's finest hams. Chef/Owner Jeff Tunks serves up classic American cuisine in this gorgeous setting. Chili Glazed Duck, Brick Pressed Chicken, Classic Hanger Steak - these choices and more! Freshly baked breads and desserts round out your meal. Try one of our regional American drafts or exquisite wines, or sample from the 99 Beers on the Wall!

"This is a vibrant and lovely restaurant with tons of promise in the menu but it failed to deliver in terms of food. We dined there preceding theater at the Kennedy Center and at 6 on a Saturday, it was hopping. The menu is moderately priced and we were told that the meatloaf was great and large enough for 2+ so we shared that plus 2 salads. The salads were fine but uninspiring and the meatloaf, which arrived only lukewarm, was just ok - too sweet and not particularly tasty. The pretzel baguette was definitely the highlight of our meal so make sure that you try that with it's tasty butter spread. I would return but mostly because of proximity and vibe - food wise, it needs to do more to entice me back."
