The Commodore Public House & Kitchen

Washington DC

The Commodore has prime patio seating, and a solid menu from chef Travis Weiss, who’s serving up calorically questionable options like "county fair poutine," a potato funnel cake topped with duck confit, Virginia curds, and brandy gravy. You can pair one of these delicious entrees with one of their craft cocktails, like the Scotch-based Unpaid Intern, or the cachaça-based Diver Down, then try the dish combining duck confit, smoked lamb, pork belly, vegetables, and grilled bread... if you dare.
