Traveling to Germany right now might not be practical, but raising a pint at Prost is the next best thing. The “Bavarian food hall” just opened in Mount Vernon Triangle, and it’s already garnering buzz for its European suds and German grub. You’re welcome to sit down and dine—social-distancing is observed, as is mask-wearing, and there’s a two-hour maximum for reservations. But you can also pick up some of the food and drink to take home to your apartments near Seward Square DC.
If you’re ordering the food to-go, start with some popular noshes like the Bavarian pretzel deviled eggs, and poutine. For the main course, don’t miss the short rib spaetzle or the schnitzel. A wurst platter is also a solid option. And of course, sides like German potato salad and sauerkraut are a must! For those who sit down to dine, add a German-brewed lager or Kolsch to the mix.
