THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED J. Paul's Dining Saloon Restaurant Review

: A self-styled dining saloon, D.C.-based J. Paul's is meant to evoke Prohibition-era dining rooms, a burnished wood and polished brass kind of thing. And it is handsome. But the real glory is in the view out to the Inner Harbor, where you can watch the world meander by or admire the refurbished U.S.S. Constellation, happy to be back in her proper berth. The raw bar (half price Thursdays after 5 p.m.) is a big draw, and the menu offers a basic American roundup --- nachos, fish ā€˜nā€™ chips, crab cakes, baby-back ribs, New York strip and big, juicy burgers --- along with a thematic house brew, called 1889 Amber Ale.
