New Beer Garden: Anything but Standard

The Ultimate in Picnic Dining

standard restaurant!

We’ve got some news: This is not your everyday restaurant opening.

The new Standard, a minimalist beer and barbecue joint, is totally uncommon.

The former Garden District nursery space now has adorable indoor bar seating for ten; outside is a huge German-style beer garden with picnic tables and patio heaters (it’s so comfy and laid-back you’ll want to spend your whole weekend there).

Köstritzer Schwarzbier and Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier are on draft, and bratwurst and kraut share menu space with pulled pork, ribs, fries, beans, and slaw. Any combo hits the spot when you’re dining under the stars — especially when pretty much everything is under seven bucks.

It’s definitely above average.

Standard, 1801 14th Street NW, at S Street (standarddc.com).
