This is mainly a social event and I organize it with my other Meetups. There would be a lot of people and you get to network with many insanely friendly people. The Gryphon is a new addition to DC's trendy restaurants & bars. Let us check it out! We have specials and an extended happy hour, just for our group. Gryphon also make me feel loved and honored, by serving, one of my favorite cocktails, which is named after me - MerTini:) It will be one of the featured cocktails. Gryphon is a Meat & Raw Bar Social House. These words encompass the entire dining experience presented at the Gryphon. The Meat & Raw Bar Food Experience The food experience is meat-centric with a heavy emphasis on beef. But the menu includes a variety of options for pork, lamb, seafood and, of course, an outstanding oyster based raw bar that includes shrimp, lobster and clams. The philosophy, is to bring out the experience of enjoying the meats and other food on the menu through two things: The Preparation - such as curing, grilling, broiling, roasting and aging; and The Presentation - EVERYTHING is plated to share or “pre-cut.” We encourage all of our guests to order with that in mind. Social House In a nutshell social dining provides our guests with exceptional food and drink (specially crafted cocktails, selected beers and wine) and puts them together in a lively, fun, and energetic atmosphere at the Gryphon. I organize this with my other Meetups and you will get to mingle with many insanely friendly socialites. METRO INFO : Gryphon is half a block from DuPont Circle Metro Station P Street exit. PARKING : Street parking might be difficult. However, if you plan to drive, there are parking garages around.
How about a weekend Happy Hour over unbeatable prices.
