Annie’s Paramount Steak House, located at 1609 17th St NW, Washington, D.C. which is 12 minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is known for its steaks and American fare, plus a popular weekend brunch.

Annie’s Paramount Steak House dates back to 1948 when it was opened by George Katinas, the son of Greek immigrants. He ran the restaurant for many years alongside his five sisters, including Annie, who always remained devoted to the eatery. Later, he renamed the restaurant after her due to her endless support of the restaurant. In 2019, Annie’s was nominated to the James Beard Foundation’s America’s Classics Award.

Red Bear Brewing, located at 209 M St NE, Washington, D.C. which is 11 minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is an industrial spot offering brewed onsite beers as well as local cider and other spirits, plus pub grub.

It all started in summer of 2015 when founders Simon Bee and Bryan Van Den Oever were hanging out at an event called the Scottish Highland Games. Amidst the kilts and log throwing, a conversation was struck about wanting to open a brewery someday. Today, this independent craft brewery fights industrial beer giants and strives to win over the hearts of the community.
