    Pork pasties? Surely some mistake...
    Pork pies or Cornish pasties.

      I'd definitely eat either a Porkish Pastie or a Corn Pie if I'd had enough pints of bitter.

      Sounds promising, especially with an outdoor patio area.

      Metrocurean didn't mention anything about what beers they will be offering though.

        I'd imagine it would be the standard Bass/Harp/Guinness/Boddingtons with some local microbrews and ESBs in the mix. I really hope they carry Beamish as I much prefer it Guinness, the Budweiser of stouts. From the map, it looks like it's right on top of the Columbia Heights Metro. An excellent location, I'm sure they'll draw a lot of customers from U Street and Mount Pleasant.
