I just want to note Ezra’s misuse of “the IFA” below in his endorsement of Tonic. I do NOT endorse until I see this “reworking”. I reserve special dislike for Tonic due to the following reasons:
Slow. slow. sloooooow. (-10)
Mediocre food. (-5)
So.much.attitude. from the servers (-5)
Uncomfortable seating. (-1)
Tater Tots!!!! (+8 )
Did they get rid of the tots now? It might not even be worth visiting for a follow up.
Also, in response to verplanck colvin’s question about what counts as good beer selection in DC: it depends? I don’t know of anywhere that has cask beer. Does anyone else? I count good beer selection as at least 7 on tap that are not exclusively Belgian (hmm..it appears I’m easy to please.)
That being said, one thing I really dislike about DC is the lack of a local brew universally on tap. You can usually find Yuengling, but: it’s not really local (from PA), not very cheap (usually about $6), and not that good. I’m totally spoiled by Kansas City, home to the extremely excellent Boulevard Brewing Co. Their Wheat and Pale Ale are on tap at most every bar for about $3.50.
But I can’t find it in DC. Still broken up over that…
