Make Sure to Order the Crinkly Fries

Jack Brown's Beer and Burger Joint is a chain, but feels a bit like a hole-in-the-wall place. It's mainly bar and barstools with an emphasis on craft beer (they also have Bold Rock Cider, which I imbibed). The fact that it is "On the Avenues" is amusing, too.

The wagyu burgers are straightforward with none of that lettuce/tomato/onion stuff. Choose from a plain hamburger or cheeseburger or go for one of their own concoctions, such as The Elvis - a bacon, peanut butter, and banana offering. The burgers were tasty and the inside of the buns were griddled. If you don't want a burger, they offer a grilled cheese; otherwise, go someplace down the street.

Cheeseburger

Fries are the crinkly kind. I don't see the crinkle variety too often and they fit the bill as we watched the Redskins lose another game on the TV above the bar.

Crinkly Fries

Laid back with lots of beer and decent burgers. Don't forget to order the crinkly fries.

Amuse Serves Up French Bistro Offerings for Rodin Exhibit

And, c'est si bon. Deceptively simple and just in time for the Fall/Winter season, Amuse serves up some yummy, hearty entrees along with kick-ass cocktails and Absinthe service (if you dare).

The Age of Bronze cocktail features scotch.

I am in love with the Cassoulet. The white beans were thoroughly cooked (a must) and the duck leg almost made me swoon.

Hubby raved about the steak frites. Herbed butter permeated the plate.

No need to ponder where to eat. Treat yourself to Amuse.
