RESTAURANT NEWS

Openings

Right in the vicinity of DC’s George Washington University and George Washington University Hospital, CIRCA at Foggy Bottom (one of five in the metro area) has indoor and outdoor seating; the former area has a complete bar, but good weather draws patrons to the latter. It’s large enough for a capacity mealtime crowd that gathers for the kitchen’s creative take on American favorites. CIRCA at Foggy Bottom, 2221 I St. NW, Washington, DC 20037, 202-506-5589.
 
As the name would imply, The Bird near Dupont Circle specializes in chicken, duck and turkey. Non-poultry dishes are available, too: a fried green tomato “club” with smoked bacon; corn-and-lima bean succotash with smoked bacon; and a veggie omelet. If you dine outdoors, take time to stroll through the interior decorated with bird artwork by local artists. The Bird, 1337 11th St. NW, Washington, DC 20001, 202-518-3609.
