Kitty's Saloon Now Open on H Street
I recently stopped by the newly opened Kitty's Saloon (1208 H Street) to find out a bit about the place. They didn't have the kitchen open when I visited, but they are serving food now. They currently have six beers on tap (Shiner Bock $6, Atlas Rowdy $6, Abita Amber $6, Dogfishhead 90 Minute $7, Goose Island $7, and Allagash Curieux $12). All taps will rotate. They also have a selection of bottled beers ($3-9) and beers in cans ($3-6). Fans of craft cocktails can enjoy one of their house creations. I tried the refreshing Autumn for Rickey ($10), which consists of Green Hat Gin, fresh juice, and blackberry jam. The whisky/bourbon focused upstairs bar isn't open yet (give it a month), but they have a nice list of bourbon, whisky, rye, and scotch that you can enjoy downstairs.
The Autumn for Rickey
Kitty's has previously described their food as "contemporary redneck cuisine." Their menu reveals this in offerings such as house pickled egg and fried bologna sliders ($7) and bourbon braised bison shortribs ($19).
They do not have a set kids menu, but can accommodate children (no highchairs).
The Washington Post has a write-up on Kitty's.
