After a friend suggested we meet at Blackbyrd last night before a show at the 9:30 Club, I dutifully checked the dining guide and discovered that this place seems to have been overlooked. I can't comment much on the food, other than to say the menu focuses on small plates of seafood and it has a raw bar with 4-5 kinds of oysters, shrimp, crab legs, etc. My friend liked his salmon rueben a lot, but it was gone before I arrived so I didn't even get to see it (let alone try it). The reason I didn't order from the menu is that they offer a $1 oyster happy hour from 5:30-7:30, and the oysters are very good. Last night, the special featured oysters from the James River that were good-sized, clean, and well shucked (served with mignonette and straight-from-the-bottle cocktail sauce). The beer list was decent too (I had a Rhino Chasers Pils), and there was nobody in there (on a Monday). You can find Blackbyrd at: 2005 14th St NW (near U St.) Washington, DC 20009 Telephone: (202) 747-2377 Facebook Twitter All of the online menus I found are outdated.

Grand Trunk "Grand Trunk Opens In Penn Quarter - Breakfast Foods, Curries, Naan, Burgers, Salads, Tea, Smoothies, All In A Night-Club Atmosphere With Techno Music, Chandeliers, Flat-Screens ...." on popville.com Something looks fishy about the Yelp reviews. Many have similar format and comments.
"We do what we want at The Rockwell, and so do the distillers of the craft liquors we carry at The Rockwell. They are infusing their vodka with real Maine blueberries instead of artificial flavoring. They are distilling their spirits in Chicago and Vermont and California instead of abroad - as American as rock music. And we're offering them to you at the same prices as the mainstream competitors." I mean ... just ... go. The Rockwell
