And we’re not even talking about relief pitchers. Just a sexy new bar with picklebacks, spicy-sausage pizzas and flat iron steaks.
You’ll find them at Scarlet Oak, a sleeker-than-expected new spot a couple blocks north of Nats Park, opening tomorrow.
There’s a pair of big TVs over the long, curved bar here, but this isn’t a sports bar. You’ll know it once you see the tufted booths, pendant lights and gray wood paneling in this slideshow.
If you’re just coming out of a day game and looking to make a night of things, grab a red booth inside (or soon, one of the 85 seats on the patio). You’ll be in store for grilled octopus with mango salad, four different pizzas and pastas like brisket ravioli and squid-ink tagliatelle with shellfish.
If you’re making a quick pit stop before the first pitch, grab some bar snacks like hush puppies and meatballs, and decide between the 10 taps and a mojito made with strawberry-infused vodka. Or maybe just their 909 Triple Play, aka a PBR, a shot of whiskey and a pickleback.
There’s always a pickleback on deck.
