Single Shot is on the west slope of Capitol Hill, on Summit next to Top Pot, and the narrow, shotgun-style space looks great. It's where photographer Spike Mafford's studio used to be (you may know his evocative work from the walls of the two Mezcaleria Oaxacas and La Carta). His friend Rory McCormick, of Re:public, is running it; the chef is James Sherrill, formerly of Re:public, Crush, and Restaurant Zoe. Adam Fream is managing the bar; he's worked at Bathtub Gin and the Zig Zag. In charge of wine and service is Guy Kugel, formerly of the excellent Altura. It's an all-star cast working under the oversized wooden replica of a single-shot shotgun that hangs above the bar.
