Amazing New American Cuisine. After hearing numerous good reviews on Birch & Barley from critics, food bloggers and everyday reviewers, I was very excited when I finally got to try this place. And the restaurant didn't disappoint. B&B's ever-changing menu relies on seasonal ingredients and chef's mastery: it's filled with beautiful, fresh dishes that use new spins on American cuisine. I've had poussin here, which was perfectly cooked: crispy skin on the outside, tender flesh on the inside, and some of the meat was rolled around a stuffing that brought me back to memories of Thanksgiving. B&B also offers complimentary amuse bouches and breads (at least they do for Restaurant Week), like arrancini with a pea puree and a sweet cornbread that goes well with their soft butter. I didn't sample one of their beers, but they have a huge selection that you're bound to find a favorite from. Also, don't skip dessert - I tried a plate of small goodies (i.e. homemade Hostess cupcake, mint chip ice cream, s'more brownie, oatmeal cookie sandwich) that was to die for.
Citysearch Editorial Review. This trendy Logan Circle hot spot serves posh, upscale-American dishes in a setting that feels both new and old; trunk-like wood columns and single lights that descend from the ceiling like stars create a modern Midsummer Night's Dream.
