After an afternoon of ballet at the Kennedy Center, we came here for an early dinner. Started at the bar. While I visited the rest room my friend and the bartender got into an increasingly off-putting political discussion, which according to my friend included his estimate that she was 5 years older than she is, and that our generation was to blame for every ill in the world. The bartender was poorly informed, not willing or able to be deflected, and for whatever reason unaware or unwilling to accept that he was aggravating us. I would have walked out, but instead we simply adjourned to our table. The food was good but not great, the service ok but they forgot to return my credit card with the check. We'd been here before and liked it, but are unlikely to go back anytime soon. The ratings reflect an effort to merge judgments on the bar experience and the restaurant experience.
