Alliance Forged: Alliance Tavern—Restaurant

A welcome change/addition has come to the corner of Macomb and Wisconsin Avenue NW—Alliance Tavern. The former Enology has reinvented itself into a cut–above neighborhood tavern. In a neighborhood that seems to fight business development at every turn, this is great news.

Alliance continues with the same wine offerings as Enology, but now has an extensive list of microbrews and full, varied menu as well. Although the current winter menu will be changing and expanding, present dishes are varied, ranging from salads to chili to sandwiches to burgers to steak to chicken strips to fish and chips to penne  to fries and more. There’s even a kids’ menu. Hungry yet? In my recent visit, I had a yummy  caprese sandwich  with basil pesto, mozzarella, roasted tomato served on delicious brioche (all sandwiches are served on brioche) and my friend dined on Potomac cioppino made of local fresh fish, shrimp and clams. We both shared the gigantic portion of tasty fries that came with my sandwich.

For you sports nuts, there’s plenty of flat-screens—seemingly as many as the eye can see. The bar looks ample and friendly. And the best news? Alliance will soon be open for lunch and brunch. Stay tune for more details. In the meantime, welcome to my ‘hood.
