I went to Eat Bar with a buddy after catching a concert in DC. We got there a little before the kitchen was to close, but unlike some other places I've been to, there was no attitude or issue with ordering so late. We kicked it off with some great fries that came with a dipping sauce that tasted like sour cream and onion potato chips (in a yummy way). We ordered the mushroom risotto balls, which were very good, but I wouldn't spend the time at Eat Bar ordering them again. Nothing wrong with them, mind you, just other items on the menu were more memorable. My buddy got the catfish sub, which he said was outstanding, and I got the lamb burger, which was killer. The lamb was perfectly seasoned and cooked, with a tasty tzatziki sauce along with an unusual feta/curry combo that I was dubious about but won me over. House made drinks were excellent, including an infused bourbon of the day (this one was infused with apple and cardamom - just a hint). The charcuterie/cheese plate was "make your own", with four choices (price per choice) of meat, four for cheese, and I think four for "garnishes." The pork terrine was excellent, and the housemade strawberry jam garnish had nice depth and complemented the meat and cheese perfectly. I was seriously tempted to just spoon the jam right out of the ramekin, but I controlled myself.
We ate at the bar, and the bartender (Steve) provided great service and stimulating conversation. There was generally a good buzz inside, and even though by the time we left there were only around 12 people still there, the energy level was still high. We definitely had a great night hanging out at Eat Bar, and I'll definitely be coming back to try more of the menu.
