There is a lot of new development happening in our area, and that is especially true at the National Harbor. Hyatt Place National Harbor is the latest new construction to open its doors and sits at the gateway of DC’s quickest getaway. The Hyatt Place bar and restaurant is called Bar Harbor, and it is a comfortable refuge where fresh dough, artisan pizza, and exceptional tacos highlight a fun menu that easily pairs with their handcrafted cocktails (starting at $10.90), microbrews (starts at $6) or various glasses of wine (starts at $9).
Highlights of the menu are crispy calamari, tavern wings with Gochujang barbecue, and ultimate “Tote-chos.” They have a classic Cobb salad with Romain, avocado, tomato and the usual toppings. There are many different topping selections for their pizzas. A stand out is their chicken bacon ranch pizza. They have Korean pork tacos as well as rockfish tacos. Dinner mains like ribeye and Panko-crusted rockfish are also good. There is a classic hotel burger or a crispy chicken sandwich.
Cocktails like the HarborRita, the Smokestack (featured in the video). A must is the Miami inspired Orange Crush Martini with mandarin vodka, Midori liqueur, cranberry juice, and sour is just the drink you need to escape the hustle and bustle, you deserve it.
Bar Harbor. Address: 123 Waterfront St, Oxon Hill, MD 20745. Opens at 4 PM. Phone: (301) 686-1120.
