I stopped by Ari’s Diner (2003 Fenwick St.) in Ivy City on a recent weekend. Ari's opened in December for breakfast and lunch, but now also serves dinner. It's a cute place with booths, and plenty of seats at the counter. It definitely has a retro vibe, and I'm happy to report that they did include bag hangers under the counter. The booths have a coat rack style hanger mounted on the side for your jacket.
I would definitely order the eggs benedict again. The potato hash was good, but it's not a crispy style hash. Honestly, I preferred the flavoring on the fries that came with the crab cake.We both gave a thumbs up on the crab cake sandwich. They were running chicken and waffles as a special that day, and told me it will likely appear on the regular menu soon.
