Yard House Opening in Chinatown

Spicy raw tuna poke nachos, pork lumpia, gourmet tacos and an orange chicken and rice meal made out of gardein – but with a twist – all can be found at a beer-lovers restaurant. Yard House just opened up in downtown DC with over 110 beers on tap, and On Tap was invited to try some of the brews and several drool-worthy menu items. The beer menu is easy to read and easy to love – going from lightest/easiest-drinking beers to the heaviest, with knowledgeable staff on site to help you through the beer-picking process. With all the drink options, there’s sure to be one perfect beverage to help you wash down your amazing street tacos or incredible pizza you’re about to indulge in. We feasted on the Vampire Taco, full of carnitas and bacon chorizo, and wrapped in a crispy cheese-crusted flour tortilla shell, and the Baja Fish Taco, which was your classic fresh-tasting, pico and guac dripping taco with sriracha aioli and cilantro. Some other pictured favorites included the Nashville Hot Chicken – fried sage, sweet potato pancakes, pickles, ranch and hot sauce – and Shrimp & Calamari Diablo, featuring jump shrimp, calamari and black spaghetti in a mildly spicy tomato sauce. The huge selection of menu items doesn’t compare to the number of beers, but there’s still plenty of deliciously unique comfort food and something for everyone at this new American hot spot. Photos: Natalia Kolenko
