The people behind Restaurant Zoe
created this Capitol Hill gastropub, offering (relatively) affordable, prettied-up versions of country foods people have been eating forever. The best thing about the space might be the bouquet-of-lightbulbs chandeliers, like a collection of good ideas glowing together; dark, plain furnishings set against the enormous windows anchor the space, leaving the limelight to the building's bones. Upstairs is like the hold of an old ship. People love the wild boar sloppy joe, and anything pate-ish or sausagey is bound to be great (vegetarians, beware).
