Columbia Heights’ watering hole the Good Silver (3410 11th Street NW) is entering its second year in business with a new focus: serving more sandwiches, “super” smash burgers, all-day breakfast platters, and cheap beer.
The neighborhood bar, which replaced predecessor Kangaroo Boxing Club last spring, originally fed customers charcuterie plates, pickled vegetables, lentil salads, and baba ghanoush fritters. Co-founder Josh Saltzman said its one year anniversary got management thinking about how the Good Silver should proceed.
“After a year-long identity crisis (‘is it a cocktail bar, a sports bar, or a tinder spot?’), we’re tearing it all down and starting from scratch,” he announced in a release.
The revamped menu features: a quartet of all-day breakfast items including a two-egg breakfast with latkes, and pastrami over potatoes with Russian dressing (Reuben hash); a dozen specialty sandwiches ranging from BLTs and egg salad with Dijon mustard to a grilled ham and cheese with dill pickles, and a broccoli rabe creation paired with Velveeta; house cheeseburgers are available with a single patty, two patties, or super sized (double patties topped with bacon and fried egg); hush puppies, curly fries, and bacon mac and cheese are just some of the sides.
The Good Silver is now scheduled to operate from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., Tuesday through Thursday, from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Friday, from noon to 3 a.m. on Saturday, and from noon to 2 a.m. on Sunday. Happy hour runs from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday through Friday.
