I experienced one of the happiest hours of the twenty four in my day at the National Harbor in Fort Washington, MD a few nights ago. Nicely situated at the end of one of their massive bars at Cadillac Ranch, my fellow FPICs and I quickly organized the group selections over the next 20 min of the rapidly ending happy hour. Despite the fact that of one of its oppositions competing for the HHOOTW crown, had probably one of the most innovative and healthy pizza combos known to man, it lacked one thing – Jarryd. Cadillac Ranch not only has excellent food and a decent wine selection for the price, it also has a very charming bartender. The super savvy and clever Jarryd possessed the kind of charisma, and unobtrusive yet timely presence to keep you coming back to that same spot at the bar over and over again.
Mini Fish Tacos – Blackened tilapia in mini tortillas with shredded cheese, lime-cilantro cabbage, tomatoes and chipotle ranch drizzle $5
The fish tacos were some kind of amazing. I have to say. I couldn’t stop raving over them and they seemed to inevitably segue into every other conversation. The Sweet Chili Boneless Wings $5 were a pretty good choice as well. They also had a relatively generous offering of flatbreads in the happy hour deal. We tried the Buffalo Chicken Flatbread $5 with grilled buffalo chicken, mozzarella, julienned celery, scallions and bleu cheese. It was pretty awesome.
With the well balanced quantity vs quality factor of the menu items, the recession-proof pricing, the interesting selection, and the superb customer service, you’d either be a fool or in recession denial to ignore this place. I my friend am neither..
