Good Happy Hour Food Special NOT in Penn Quarter/Downtown/Georgetown?

What are the best happy hour or certain day of the week food specials not located in the aforementioned areas (Penn Quarter/downtown/Georgetown)? Particularly interested in Golden Triangle/Dupont/Adams Morgan/U St/Cleveland Park/Columbia Heights areas. I'm not talking about really crappy wings or nachos at places that are more bar than restaurant, but something more along the lines of the 1/2 price Tuesday apps at Black Squirrel or the happy hour food specials at PS7, $4 tapas at Jaleo, or even the sushi happy hour at Tono, which is not an amazing sushi spot but decent for the happy hour prices.

PS7 Restaurant
777 I Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001

The Black Squirrel

  1. Taberna del Alabardero at 18th and I has half price tapas and sangria at happy hour that are excellent, much better than Jaleo. The bar area is small, though. FYI, the Golden Triangle is downtown.

      Taberna would be my recommendation as well. Just make sure to go there before 7pm for the 1/2 off deal. Excellent food!

      You can do the Happy Hour deal at the outside tables many times, just ask nicely first.

    2. Acadiana does some tasty happy hour specials, particularly on Fridays.

      1. Kushi usually has a few options, changing it up regularly.
