While you're taking in the sites of D.C., stop in to Halfsmoke for a bite and to replenish your stores.

The immense, cool hangout space has a homey and comfortable vibe. It uses an assembly-line business model and features imaginative sausage dishes as well as small plates and shareables. Make your selections from the inventive menu -- during happy hour you'll find nibbles like crab fries, pigs in a blanket, and vegan cauliflower nachos that pair nicely with one of their specialty cocktails or mocktails.

Brunch is available all day, every day (yay!) and features free bottomless mimosas with purchase of a signature entree.

Dinner includes offers shareable dishes like shepherd's pie and shrimp n' grits as well as mains like brisket meatballs and wood-grilled quesadillas. Or try one of their signature sausage dishes -- they have Italian, lamb, chicken andouille, and a 100% plant-based sausage as well as a seasonal option to choose from.

You can pick your perch from one of the many different seating sections, be it at a picnic table, a cushioned barstool at the wrapround bar, watching tv in the semi-private room, or at one of the cozy armchairs or couches. Snuggle up by the fire and play some board games while you enjoy a hand-spun boozy milkshake -- yum! The fun, trendy vibe is the perfect spot to catch up with friends or to book for your next event.

They also offer delivery and takeout for those nights you prefer to stay in.
