Don't be fooled: it's on H Street

Futilely trying to live up to the ingenuity of the building's former tenant, Hair Force One, Boundary Road's mod'ing up American bistro fare in a steampunk-y tavern with lights welded to exposed I-beams, and a giant wire mattress chandelier, which'll serve as a solid reminder for your dinner date that you're just trying to Sealy the dealy.

Relying on his experience at Proof and Fiola, the chef's curated a "simple" menu that actually isn't at all. To wit: grilled venison washed with juniper sauce & chestnut mashed potatoes, and a roasted steak w/ butternut squash & spätzle dubbed "Pork Blade", aka a movie were Wesley Snipes combats the ultimate bloodsuckers, Congress!

You can also test the boundaries of your palate with cocktails like the "Praha City Represent" (Becherovka/ vodka/ fresh rosemary/ ginger beer), the "Five & Dime" (Root liquor/ maple syrup/ egg white, all topped w/ a black IPA), and the Aperol/ Cocchi Americano/ sparkling wine "I'm Thinking About Buying a Vespa", aka a movie where Wesley Snipes wears a scarf, directed by Wes Anderson.

And for filthy foodie voyeurs, they've set up a three-stool tasting window by the kitchen where diners can watch their meal being prepared -- it's first come, first served though, so expect things to get pretty hairy. Then cop a really sweet fade.
