Flock of Pizzas
Posted by:  Rachel Tepper

Thirsty Washingtonians, take heed! Chef Geoff’s has the best gosh darn Happy Hour this side of the Potomac. The downtown restaurant near Federal Triangle is an oasis in a city of often mundane and incongruously named Happy Hours. Unlike other Happy Hour menus, there's a lot of variety at Chef Geoff's. Long necks go for $2.95 and Estrella wines for $5.95, but the real boozy draw is the $7.95 Super Mug, a drink not for the faint of heart. These gargantuan glasses of cold beer weigh in at a whopping 33.8 oz. Come thirsty! Burgers go for $5.95 and personal pizza pies for $8.95. Happy Hour prices are available from 3 until 7 pm at the bar during the week, except on Mondays and Tuesdays and all day on weekends when the deals last all night. That's right, all night. (That's what she said? Maybe not, but it's still a steal.) Fair warning though; the bar area can get quite crowded. But then again, can you blame people for flocking here?

It is DC, and an election year, so I guess you have to forgive Chef Geoff's for its Ciroc O'Pama and McCane Mojito cocktails. Take it as an opportunity to raise your glass and support your candidate, or if you're tired of politics, just enjoy a Key Lime Pie Martini (it has pie crust around the rim!). Whether you're in the mood for drinks or a more substantial meal, Chef Geoff's is a nice stop before a show at National Theater or Warner Theater, both of which are just a few steps away (to the delight of the stiletto-wearing theatergoers). And there's something for all tastes, with dozens of dishes in every category on the menu. Have a burger (of the beef, salmon, or tuna variety), a pizza (Portobello, perhaps?), a satisfying salad, or one of their "Simple Meats and Fish." And if you're up for it, definitely grab a side of the sweet potato fries. Oh, there's always room for sweet potato fries.
