Mythology Restaurant & Lore Lounge

Open: Mid-September

Location: H Street

Lowdown: A dose of whimsy 

Owner Todd Luongo describes his new restaurant as “contemporary with a healthy dose of whimsy,” noting several favorite mythical libations on the menu including Mercury’s Vespa (vodka, gin, prosecco, grapefruit and Italian honey) and the perfect-for-autumn Blue Men of the Minch (Laphroaig 10 Year, English breakfast tea and condensed milk). Mythology’s eclectic menu features a dozen types of frite dishes – dusted or smothered – from sushi-flavored to bulgogi beef, kimchi and red chili aioli, plus a range of entrees. Luongo says But I’m A Vegetarian (curried chickpea ragout, stewed eggplant and lemon yogurt) has been a standout dish thus far for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Mythology Restaurant & Lore Lounge: 816 H St. NE, DC;www.mythology-lore.com
