RFD's Mission Statement
RFD is code for B-E-E-R and no place in town has a beer list quite like it. In fact, WASHINGTON CITY PAPER proclaimed RFD’s tap lineup the "Best Draft Beer Selection" in all of DC.

RFD is the sister bar to DC’s legendary 53 year old Brickskeller and offers over 30 beers on tap, including a cask-conditioned ale and constantly rotating selection of rare beers and specialty handcrafts. That extensive list is further expanded by RFD's 300-plus inventory of bottled beers from around the world. At the full-service bar, premium liquors and wines are also available, including an impressive list of single-malts and small-batch bourbons.

Beyond that, the kitchen puts out a diverse, beer-centric menu, from RFD's Hoegaarden Witbier-Steamed Mussels and NY Strip marinated in Sam Smith Taddy Porter, to the pan seared Crab Cakes in Rodenbach reduction, and a Kostritzer Black Lager-marinated Brew Burger. A great selection of fresh salads and sandwiches is also available and delicious. Got a sweet tooth? The house-made Bieramisu or Fudge Stout Brownie will easily satisfy that urge to splurge. The spacious setting is lively and relaxed, creating an atmosphere that celebrates the restaurant's beer-loving roots.

Best of all, RFD is central to everything, including Mount Vernon Square, Washington Convention Center and Verizon Center, home to the Washington Capitals, Wizards and Georgetown Hoyas. With 21 flat-screens, 2 projection screens, subscriptions to all the best sports packages, RFD plays host to some of Washington's most spirited game-day excitement. Business-friendly by day, this destination is dynamic and casual by night, with ample facilities for private parties and an outdoor patio perfect during the warm-weather months.

Cooking with Beer
There is a growing trend in the culinary arts. Noted chefs are beginning to use beer in the preparation of their menu items. We’ve seen it in brewpub fare for a while now, but sadly too often on all fronts beer is relegated to a dipping batter or flavored mustard, vanquished to a minor supporting role. Here at Regional Food and Drink that is not the case.

Many of our menu items use world class brews as major flavoring components in the formulation of our recipes, producing taste sensations here-to-fore unexplored. We urge home gourmets to experiment in their own kitchen!

It’s a whole brew world out there!
