In the often upscale DC restaurant scene, a place like BOE feels like sweet relief for many local diners. This restaurant’s rustic, unpretentious decor is built around an impressive stone fireplace with lots of dark wood and leather, giving it a feeling that's more like a hunting lodge than a H Street lounge.
The menu, too, has changed to accomodate the food scene's return to simplicity, with a new emphasis on creative interpretations of American comfort foods. Yelp reviewers insist you try the pulled chicken on a bed of crispy golden fries, as well as the brisket with espresso gravy and roasted potatoes and the salmon lacquered in Carolina sweet tea. Gluten free and vegetarian options abound on the menu, too, so you should be able to find something that suits both your tastes and lifestyle.
