On Our Radar:
Proud To Be American
Posted by:  Rin-rin Yu

Situated across from Whole Foods, this neighborhood bar/eatery may be the most environmentally-friendly block in all DC. As a proud member of the Green Restaurant Association, it uses wind energy credits and furniture of recycled materials. The restaurant is also extremely proud to be American, or to be located in DC, judging by the number of American flags in the restaurant and Web site. Its menu lists the most American dishes possible, in a font simulating a very neat, fifth grader's handwriting for a very homestyle, fresh-from-the-farm sort of feel. The food is comforting and delicious, but as America goes, there's still a melting pot of cuisines on its menu: a croque monsieur, chicken dumplings, and huevos rancheros with beans and tortillas featuring a few of what makes up true American food. There's also a coffee and wine bar, and free Wifi to encourage people to linger. While the Web site conveys the image of amber waves of grain and purple mountains, the restaurant itself is not necessarily so bright and outdoorsy--more dark and lounge-like, with essence of Old Glory bearing down as you dine.
