Local reporters and bloggers aren’t the only ones who’ve covered H Street’s Argonaut Tavern lately.

“It’s really the only place in the Atlas district we could find to get dinner before a show,” reports a Washington City Paper Restaurant Rater who visited the Tavern earlier this month, “but the place was freezing (both of us with coats and scarves on and still shivering), service [was] on the slow side, and the food, while okay for bar food, is still just okay.” The “warm” chips were a highlight, even if the accompanying salsa tasted “bitter.” “Next time,” the rater concludes, “we’ll plan to eat before getting to the area.” (To read the rater’s full report and to get other perspectives, click here.)
