Boss Shepherd’s is Penn Quarter’s hottest farm-to-table restaurant, where guests can enjoy a fresh approach to traditional American cuisine. Named after DC’s original governor, who was often referred to as the Father of Modern Washington, Boss Shepherd was one of the most powerful city bosses in his day and was responsible for creating DC’s infrastructure, ultimately convincing Congress to continue to operate in the District of Columbia. A statue of Boss Shepherd reigns half a block away, in front of the John A. Wilson Building.<br /><br />Instilled with Chef Jeremy Waybright’s southern inspiration, the menu boasts fresh takes on time-honored, rustic classics that can please the palate of any guest. Chef Waybright’s use of farm-to-table ingredients is evident in innovative starters such as the Maine blue mussels with sausage, cider beer, vermouth and pickled chili, or delectable bone marrow served with herbs, pickled egg, breakfast radish and toast.

"Two reasons to go: fried chicken and bourbon. The chicken is without fault, and they give you plenty of it (albeit at $24 a plate). The anticipated green beans accompaniment did not show, and grilled, flavorless eggplant was substituted. A side of greens ($8) was not edible, but notation of that to the bartender only brought a chortle and no offer to take it off the bill. The "biscuit," which really is more like a roll, has great prospects if it were just warm. Good offerings of bourbons, friendly and capable bar staff. If you get just the fried chicken and bourbon, you'll likely leave satisfied."
