Biergarten Haus brings a German beer garden to H Street

Biergarten Haus, the city's largest -- and only -- German-style beer garden, is poised to bring bratwurst, hefeweizen and strolling accordion players to 1355 H St. NE in about three weeks. (There's still some construction to be done, says co-owner Aaron McGovern, and the target date is "early-to-mid April.")

Got Plans? We're chatting at 1

Today was my first day in 2010 that I ventured forth into the city without any form of outerwear, not even a hoodie. I almost did cartwheels down the street. Many of you are feeling the same way so we'll...

Againn expands to Rockville; Casa Nonna hires a chef

There are lots of intriguing developments on the food front this week, but you'll have to be patient to taste them all. Most of the changes won't take place until this summer. Here's a sneak peek.

Looking forward to Tim's

It may not feel much like boating weather today, but really its right around the corner. For boat-owning locals in the know that means its almost time for a trip to Tim's Rivershore Restaurant & Crabhouse. The Prince William County seafood spot serves generous baskets of shellfish right on the water. Tim's patrons arrive by boat, car and bike and clearly care more about the quality of their beer and steamer baskets than they do about the size of their cabin-cruiser -- it's the anti-Georgetown Waterfront.

Area gardens spring to life

Gardens across the area are getting into the spring spirit with tours, festivals and workshops. I've chosen a few gardens worth checking out because, after all, 'tis the season to stop and smell the roses -- or the orchids, forsythia and rhododendrons.
