The owners of Tom Tom in Adams Morgan have repositioned the restaurant as Carriage House. They've been open for about a week, and owner Jonathan Askarinam shared a few details with Eater about the revamped restaurant.

· The owners want Carriage House to be the quintessential neighborhood restaurant. The upstairs has more of a bar feel, while the downstairs is more of a sit-down restaurant. Askarinam thought Adams Morgan was missing that kind of restaurant, with American food and affordable prices.

· The restaurant has a brick oven that they're using heavily for the cooking. Dishes include individual, eight-inch pizzas, as well as meats and fish cooked in the oven.

· The restaurant owners also own Spaghetti Garden. Askarinam's uncle handled the design of Carriage House, which features hand-built tables, exposed brick walls and lots of wood. "We tried to give it a classic feel, but at the same time, make it modern," he said. There's an outdoor patio, too.

· Two must-try items, according to Askarinam: the salmon with brown sugar glaze, and the Carriage bread, which is priced at $6 and features a feta spread.

· The restaurant will eventually introduce a half-priced wine night, and hopes to rent up the upstairs for large private parties.
