Can't See the Forest for the Food?

New resto Cedar springs up in Penn Quarter



    Top 4 Reasons to Go to ZooLights
    No word on whether wobbly little fawns will hang out with you while you wait for a table.

    Upscale new dining spot Cedar has opened at 822 E St. N.W. (Oh, good, because Penn Quarter was really lacking pricy restaurants.)

    Cedar, which comes from the owners of Dupont Circle's Front Page, is going for a "field and stream kind of thing," reports Washington Business Journal. Wood accents and wall-sized photos of forests may make you feel like you're camping in the woods, except for the fancy-schmancy entree in front of you.

    The menu of hearty-yet-eclectic fare will change daily, focusing on goodies like wild king salmon and price-aged beef, plus seasonally inspired appetizers.

    Cedar's Mikias reports that the resto Web site should be up today for all your menu-browsing needs.
