EatBar Opens Today on Barracks Row

It's an effort from the folks behind Red Apron.

EatBar, a meat-heavy watering hole from Nathan Anda and Neighborhood Restaurant Group, opens today on Barracks Row. It's a new iteration of the bar that Anda opened in Arlington. While the focus is on meat — consciously sourced beef, port and poultry — there will be plenty of vegetables included, too. On the meaty side, there's charcuterie, animal-centric snacks like dates wrapped in guanciale, bread-heavy things like burgers and johnnycakes with lardo. Vegetable-focused dishes include a dandelion greens Caesar salad and pea shoots with almond hummus. But to be sure, this is an eatery and bar fully focused on meat: there will be a rotating beef, port and sausage of the week, which will showcase different breeds, cuts and recipes.

On the drinking side, the main attraction is the 100-bottle (30 by-the-glass) wine list, in which old world wines will be well-represented. For the cocktails, the spirit focus is on amaro, bitters and vermouth. Beers round out the boozy offerings, with 18 draft lines and over 30 bottles.

Music lovers rejoice: the decor is inspired by Anda's love of tunes — a full wall is decorated with a mosaic of over 7,000 cassette tapes. It's not just for show, though. There's also a 100-disc CD jukebox in residence.

EatBar opens today (and everyday) at 4pm, at 415 8th St. SE.
