Honeysuckle Slays New Bar Menu Debut

Honeysuckle in DuPont Circle debuts fantastic new bar menu by Chef Hamilton Johnson

Nestled underground on the bustling M St. NW in DC, Honeysuckle boasts bright murals upon entering the intimate space.  Smiling staff greet me in the candlelit entryway and I’m filled with pleasantries, giddy to taste the new creations from chef Hamilton Johnson, formerly of Vidalia.

A glass of bubbly whets my appetite, and what follows is a symphony of new and amusing dishes that are currently featured on Honeysuckle’s new bar menu.  Take a look at some of the highlights of my evening below, including some of the chef’s favorites from the regular menu, and add Honeysuckle to your list of “must-try” spots in DC.
