Boundary Road is one of the newest additions to the burgeoning H Street corridor, but it didn't take long for local bloggers—or President Barack Obama, who visited the cozy American bistro and tavern with his wife Michelle in March—to sit up and take notice. The restaurant, which opened its doors in February and has been called a "huge score" by Prince of Petworth, is creating an exclusive experience with today's Gourmet offer: a three-course prix-fixe dinner with wine pairings, available Sunday through Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. ($50). Gratuity and other fees are not included.
Owner/chef Brad Walker is no stranger to a sauté pan—he's cooked at a quiver's worth of well-respected Washington restaurants, including Fiola, Cashion's Eat Place, Proof, and Central Michel Richard. Walker, ever the proponent of using the best available seasonal ingredients from local purveyors, likes to change his menu very frequently. A sampling of menu items include an appetizer of foie gras torchon PB&J with grilled country bread, homemade peanut butter, and peach-vanilla jelly; and an entrée of duck confit with house-made kielbasa and braised fennel, served over a lush bed of polenta.
The 72-seat dining room exudes an ultra-hip steampunk aesthetic; brick walls soar high above wood-topped tables, a retrofitted box-spring chandelier adds a low-powered glow, and a sturdy ash-wood bar serves as an anchor for the cocktail-mixing bartenders. In a neighborhood known for harboring Washington DC's "cool factor," Boundary Road crosses all kinds of borders—making the restaurant the coolest kid on the block.
