Welcome!<br /><br />Brickside Food & Drink was built on a single vision: create a fun, relaxed environment to enjoy delicious eclectic food, creative drinks and neighborly service. The fun starts at an energized Happy Hour, continues through dinner and when late night rolls around the music gets a little louder, the lights a little lower, and the drinks flow a little faster. Our open and airy bar and dining room areas offer you four 50" plasma TVs and a 12' HD projector so you never miss a game or event. Our climate controlled elevated terrace allows you to be outside year round to eat, drink and people watch.

"Staff was attentive without being overbearing. Restaurant was crowded, but it didn't impact service. And they made me a special, off the menu, cocktail. The on-menu drinks were good, but a little sweet for my taste. So, I asked for a spicy vodka drink & they put something together for me - without charging an arm and a leg!
We enjoyed the food - however, we happened to order to rounds of appetizers and didn't actually order and try any of the main courses. I don't know how that happened...
I would definitely be up for going back again to sample a burger, or try the Happy Hour."

"this place is huge and well decorated, they certainly have a good environment. The service was good as well, the bartender made me a drink that wasn't on the menu & they let me order off of the HH menu, even though it was a few minutes past 7, when HH ends - that really goes a long way to convincing me to come back.
The food was okay, not great, but good enough to pair with their collection of cocktails and rum drinks. The Latin/Cuban menu is a change up to the ordinary. I do wish they had more TVs, though, at least in the bar area."

"Rasika hits it on the service level - every person is attentive to diner's small details. You will be well cared for at Rasika. They have a creative & flexible bartender because my friend ordered a not-so-common cocktail with a few, minor modifications & there was no issue at all.
The food is okay, but I can't say its the best Indian food around. The chef is creative, no doubt, this just might be a case where they are becoming too creative. The Lamb Roganjosh was a bit too much like Lamb Kashmiri.
Still, this is a nice restaurant for when you are celebrating or just in the mood for a nice night out."

This grand Victorian saloon is on two levels, with four distinctive bars, including an oyster bar, and six dining rooms. Open for dinner til late in the evening, it is the perfect spot before or after a Verizon Center event, movie or the theatre, and is open for lunch and dinner daily, as well as Saturday and Sunday brunch.

"Went for lunch with a colleague who needed to vent - and we got a booth at the 1st floor bar. We had the necessary privacy.
Clyde's is always reliable, service was good, food was good. This is just a solid restaurant. Not Amazing, but reliable solid. They had taken the beef enchiladas off of the menu since the last time I had gone, apparently - I wish they hadn't. Nothing last forever, and I had a turkey burger. Clyde's, though, can get expensive, so you really only want to go when you need the space and privacy. Otherwise, there are plenty of Good burger joints around Penn Quarter now."

"This restaurant markets itself as serving farm fresh food. Honestly, I can't tell if the food is or isn't, but the menu is different from the normal with several unique items (the Popcorn is a must try, as is the Corn bread - and they have a lot of bread options if corn isn't the one for you).
The food is good, and, again, you'll enjoy the reading the menu. The restaurant is lively, almost loud and was crowded when we went. We made reservations, and they couldn't seat us early, because of the rush, even early on a Sunday. I didn't mind, however, because all of the staff really was running around - not one lazy person on the floor! Nice to see.
This is a good place, fun. Not the best food, but not the usual fare either."
