Room 11, our venerable little cocktail spot at 11th and Lamont, is turning seven, and they're celebrating some of their classic cocktails for $7. I bet that would include favorites like the Burnt Sugar Old Fashioned, Rite of Spring and others they've had for a long time.
The spot, owned by Paul Ruppert and crew, originally was a cozy little cocktail, wine and small plates spot with a nice patio. It's since expanded to about twice the size, and they also offer brunch, breakfast and lunch, which is all pretty tasty. The food is great too, I'm a big fan of the risotto, grilled cheese, haloumi and other goodies -- though it always rotates so you'll find seasonal stuff.
I'm glad they're here, and I hope for 7 (or 70) more years.
Room 11 is at 3234 11th Street NW.
Below is their original sketch for the spot, which they posted on their Facebook page. It ended up being a bit different, but there are still the red stools and curving bar.
