Brisket sandwich at Standard

Standard, the upstart Logan Circle barbecue spot and beer garden that earned two stars and a place in WaPo critic Tom Sietsema‘s Fall Dining Guide, is closed for the Thanksgiving holiday for most of this week. On Friday, however, proprietors Tad Curtz and David Rosner are “firing up the smoker and the patio heaters again” for a final “10 days of FUN before our last hurrah of the year on sunday, december 4th,” according to an email from management. The (mostly) outdoor venue is shutting its gates for the winter but is expected to return on Mar. 1.
