I literally just returned from my first dining experience at Redline, located in Penn Quarter/Chinatown/Verizon Center area.Â It’s found right next to Proof and in the space where the defunct “popular in the hay day” indebleu was stationed.Â While I have not yet had the opportunity to do the beer tap tables, which are quite the thing, I hear, in fact it’s not an easy feat to book a table, I did get to eat some of their really tasty lunch items.Â And no, this not a restaurant review, this is just an “oh hey, I like to actually eat at new and different places and oh hey, I actually did.”Â So as an FYI, the bruschetta was a hit, with melted mozzarella di bufala, making it a more exciting (who doesn’t love melted cheese) version of the original, however, it’s packed full of garlic bits, so remember that should you be on a date.Â I chose the fish tacos (with tilapia) and they are out of this world. If you don’t like BBQ, ask for the sauce on the side, which I did and the whole grilled filets fit right inside both soft shells with sour cream, pico de gallo, avocado and cabbage.Â One was filling enough so I bagged the other one for later.
I will be back for sure with friends. Meanwhile, I was informed of a fun summer promotion they are doing, called Jazz in the Garden After Hours:
Redline invites jazz enthusiasts to cool off and indulge in a free glass of champagne or draft beer after attending the National Gallery of Artâ€™s Jazz in the Garden concert series on Fridays. Â In order to receive the complimentary drink, concert attendees only need to tell the bartender who performed at Jazz in the Garden. After enjoying a drink, attendees are encouraged to stay, sip and dance the night away as the DJ spins today’s top 40 hits. This seasonal celebration of art and nightlife will last until September 10.
Redline is located at 707 G St., NW, in the heart of D.C.â€™s Penn Quarter neighborhood. For more information about Redline, please visit http://www.dcredline.com.
