Any good dinner options on H St NE?

I feel like H St NE is buzzing, but not for food. I've been to Granville Moores. Any other suggestions?

  1. I know people who plotz over Sticky Rice, but the one time I went there I was unimpressed. The only place on the H Street corridor I've been more than once is lunch at Horace & Dickey's for the best fish sandwich in the District.

      I agree with treetop tom about Sticky Rice. I had the same experience there.

      Horace and Dickey's I think is a great deal. The "fish sandwich" (a ton of fried fish plus a couple of slices of white bread and not nearly enough tartar sauce) is one massive meal or two normal sized ones for about $5.00. At that price I can't complain too much. However... for my taste, I thought the fish was pretty awful. It was super thin and hard as a rock: 90% breading and 10% fish. I like my fried fish to be a thick piece of fish with little breading. Still... it's one of the best bangs for the buck in DC and we need more of those.

        I actually prefer the thin, fried-hard style of fish sandwich. I've found that thicker cut fish sandwiches tend to absorb too much oil and end up really soggy.

          Anyone who likes that style should be very happy with Horace and Dickey's - especially when it comes time to pay!

        When I'm in the mood for a ton of fish on wheat, I go to Horace & Dickey's.

        H Street Country Club is cool, too. Great cocktails and appetizers. Try the Chicken Quesadillas on for size. They don't skimp on the chicken or cheese.

      3. Taylor Gourmet for the roast pork broccoli rabe sandwich.

        Ethiopic is pretty decent as well.

        Haven't had much luck on the more upscale sitdown places. Didn't care for Liberty Tree, but they might have had an off night. Food at H Street Country Club and Biergarten Haus has been a disappointment. I find myself spending more time at Sugar on West Virginia Avenue for soul food, Cap City Diner for diner fare, or getting the best crabcake in town at Sullivan's Seafood across the street.

        1. I love Taylor and also have enjoyed Dangerously Delicious pies though the wait can be insane. The apple crumb is awesome, and they have savory pies as well.

          I've read good things about the sandwiches at the Star and Shamrock but haven't tried it yet.

          1. I enjoy granville moore's. it can get pretty busy though. H street country club has been hit or miss for me but the guacamole is yummy and i like that they has fun games to play

            1. For a casual meal I think Biergarten Haus is great - they do not phone in the food, that's for sure. Really good sausages, kraut, poatoes, and homemade pretzel rolls. And the beer selection is great, too.

                I'll just say that my experience w/ the food at Biergartenhaus has not been similar to kathleen440's. They do have a good selection of beer, although it's kind of hard to screw up German beer.

                  I have to agree with Kathleen I stop by Biergarten Haus yesterday to watch the first half of the Steelers vs Ravens game. The selection of German Beer is unmatched any where in DC since the Brickstellar closed. The food was on point and the staff was very attentive its worth a visit.
