Because Cityships require their own police department and non-power-sharing governments, Township's the new all-American bistro opening tonight in the District space from the dude behind reliable standbys like Mercantile, The Delancey, and Rosewood Tavern, in a spot that definitely looks like it's sponsored by the color red, with red-stooled tables, a red-white-and-blue outside awning, and exposed brick walls that're... yellow! Oh, wait, no, they're also red.
Food's from an enormo-menu stuffed with choices you'd expect to find at a gastronome's picnic including a pork slider trio (belly & slaw, tasso ham, cheddar & egg, BLT); Louisiana gumbo w/ sausage, chicken, and okra topped w/ soft-shell crab; and herb roasted potato-enhanced Cincinnati Meatloaf, which will do anything for Cincinnati (but it won't do that... especially if "that" involves "going to Cincinnati").
If you prefer to use the word tipple, there's a massive, restaurant-wide wooden bar, serving up whiskey and rye as well as American classics like Texas Tea, Mint Juleps, and an alcoholic NY Egg Cream; they've also got USA! USA! craft beers on tap like Idaho's Sweetgrass APA, Montana's Moose Drool Brown Ale, and an Imperial Porter from Maryland's Gonzo, which you should really only try if you're an Animal. Or Skeeter.
And because that can't possibly be enough, they've also got a geographically themed gourmet hot dog menu, with options including NY (sauerkraut & mustard), Chicago (mustard, sweet relish, onion, tomato, pickle spear, and celery salt), and the LA-style, which is obviously wrapped with bacon and topped with grilled onions, like you'd usually find outside the Staples Center, which only needs its own police department after raucous Sparks wins over the hated Atlanta Dream.
