Scallops at DC Harvest

DC Harvest (517 H Street) recently celebrated its first anniversary on H Street (see our review here).  We caught up with co-owners Arthur and Jared Ringel to discuss the first year and what is on the horizon.

District Cuisine: What has surprised you most in the first year?

DC Harvest: Many things, especially how successful Saturday Brunch has been.  Most onlookers told us we should stick to just Sunday, but both days have been extremely successful.  We have also just been thrilled by how patrons have taken to our menu and approach to offering a healthy take on upscale dining.

District Cuisine: What’s been your best selling item?

DC Harvest: Our locally sourced Scallop entrees.  We have done many preparations that have reflected the changing seasons and the seasonal produce available throughout the year.

District Cuisine: Any consideration of lunch in the future?

DC Harvest: We are considering lunch in the future, but it is not in our immediate plans.

District Cuisine: Anything coming up that we should be on the lookout for?

DC Harvest: Continued expansion of our craft cocktail program. We’re working on packaging and pricing to offer our house made pastas for take and cook at home. We will be partnering with Catoctin Creek for weekly tastings every Wednesday starting in October.  We’re currently researching products and recipes for our fall menu as well as our New Year’s Eve Celebration.
