WP: Star and Shamrock Review


The Post writes up the Star and Shamrock, which is about to celebrate its first birthday (look for lots of great specials). Speaking of which, check out the menu for the Anniversary Stout Dinner (from the website):

The only part of the review with which I take issue is the characterization of lunch options on H Street. Yes, not every place is open for lunch. But, as we discussed a few times last month (and H Street Great Street pointed out again yesterday) there is a growing number of places willing to open up during the weekday lunch hour. I also need to point out that both the short lists tossed about in the comments here, and the one that appears on HSGS are vastly incomplete. There are tons of additional carryouts on H Street that are open for lunch. These would include quality offerings like Tony's and Major's (and who doesn't get a Popeye's craving on occasion?). Or, you can head over to Bladensburg Road and snag a po'boy from Sullivan's, or a club sandwich from the Capital City Diner.
