There are so many little gems in the Shaw neighborhood of D.C. It’s quickly becoming my favorite place to eat, drink and play.

On a HOT 90 degree day last week, my original dinner plans fell through and I found myself wandering the streets looking for an alternative. Luckily, I spotted Right Proper’s Shaw Brewpub.


Right Proper

RIGHT PROPER BREWING CO – SHAW BREWPUB & KITCHEN

624 T STREET, NW
WASHINGTON, DC 20001

The brewpub is easy to miss if you’re not looking. It’s located on a small side street off a main road and next to the iconic Howard Theater. From the entrance, it seems small but inside is a large bar and tons of seating space. You can choose from a more bar-standup-table feel in the back, or sit in the restaurant and enjoy both private and communal dining.

Right Proper’s Shaw Brewpub feels very much like a neighborhood bar/restaurant, where staff is chill and laid back, welcoming you into their “home” and hosting you as an esteemed guest. The “southern hospitality” vibe is real here, which pairs well with their southern comfort inspired dishes.

Led by Executive Chef Jonatan Bohr, expect to see many southern staples coming out of his right properkitchen like Fried Okra, Fried Chicken, Fried Green Tomatoes & Grits and of course Baked Mac & Cheese. The dessert was the only slightly disappointing part of the menu, except for the “Messy Ice Cream Sandwich.” I’ll definitely come back for that.

Lastly, of course since it doubles as a brewery, make sure to try one of their craft beers! Right Proper has a 5-barrel brewing system, which is small enough to allow them to experiment with new beers, so expect the beer offerings to change almost daily.

CHEESE PLATE

You can order a plate with 3 or 5 cheeses and choose from a list of 15-20 options.

BAKED SIX CHEESE MAC & CHEESE

It should be a rule of thumb that you never pass up Mac & Cheese when it’s on a menu. This Mac & Cheese was a bowl of ooey gooey cheese-y perfection and the perfect portion for one.

HOUSEMADE HOT WINGS

Made with their house wing sauce, these were crack!

SOUTHERN FRIED CHICK-FILET

Of course no southern inspired meal would be complete without fried chicken. The chicken was moist on the inside and extra crunchy on the outside, just like I like it. The addition of Boursin cheese created a mouthful of flavor.

    Hi Cupcakes & Caviar!

    Thanks for sharing, I would definitely visit this place, (hopefully I will find it), but would really like to visit a new place and enjoy good food and drink. I have read that they have a 5-barrel brewing system and can create different tasting beers. What flavored beer did you try?
