Jake’s American Grille is the latest concept of the District Restaurant Group, the same team behind The Ugly Mug and District 2 Bar & Grill. As an upscale neighborhood restaurant in the Chevy Chase/Friendship Heights area, Jake’s serves American cuisine in a fun, yet relaxed atmosphere where guests can enjoy executive chef Michael Degginger’s regional favorites with an emphasis on fresh seafood, steak, and local produce. Golden fries are elevated to rich, aromatic new heights with white truffle oil and a side of sun-dried tomato aioli. The Samurai Burger isn’t your typical patty – it’s glazed with teriyaki sauce and topped with pineapple chutney and melted Swiss cheese. And the mussels sit in an Eastern-inspired broth infused with coconut, lemongrass and cilantro.
In addition, Jake’s offers an approachable wine selection for the novice while also appealing to the wine enthusiast. Craft cocktail extraordinaire and “mixtress”, Gina Chersevani, now with Hank’s Oyster Bar, lent her expertise to the creation of the cocktail menu. The extensive selection of signature craft cocktails, prepared by their seasoned mixologists, will keep your taste buds elated. Take your pick of 18 beers on draft, both domestic and imports. Happy hour specials will help you unwind at the end of the work day and their weekend brunch is a draw for guests looking for a leisurely and unique dining experience.
The design of Jake’s American Grille carries a Naval theme throughout the bar and the main and private dining rooms, paying homage to its namesake, Jake Jablonski, the owner’s grandfather, who was a chemist for the Navy. His seafaring past is honored throughout the restaurant such as the black and white pictures of aircraft carriers line the hallway to the bathrooms, a porthole-styled mirror adorns a wall by the bar and the specialty cocktail list is filled with options like the Shipwreck, the Starboard, and the Land Ho. Jake’s work as a scientist isn’t forgotten either; wine is served in chemistry beakers instead of carafes.
Sports fans (Go Skins!) can view their game on one of five flat screen televisions in the bar. Jake’s is fully wired with free wi-fi and power sources at every booth and in the private dining room. For a more festive and casual atmosphere, visit the lower level of Jake’s American Grille where Jake’s Boiler Room, a full on game room.
Dining in DC is asking that the winner make their dinner reservation to Jake’s through CityEats.com. If you’re not familiar with CityEats, not only was it created in partnership with Food Network, it was born out of the idea that a great dining experience can begin well before you arrive at a restaurant. I love it that restaurants are rolling out the red carpet before you even step in the door. When you win, you’ll make your reservation, then we’ll contact Jake’s and let them know that you were the winner and you will have your meal comped (up to $100 as mentioned).
