Spaces and Places: Epiphany Open Pit

24 Jun


It is no secret at The Day Job we LOVE to eat.  Running is the only reason I have been able to maintain my shape (still holding down my size 8).  But this post is not about running, it is about the awesomeness that is Cheat Day and a new place I have fallen in love with called Epiphany Open Pit.  The restaurant is located at 4128 Georgia Avenue in Washington D.C. and they sell BBQ, seafood, and sandwiches.  I ordered the 1/2 slab of ribs with the baked beans and collard greens and I must say that I was impressed.

The Good

The ribs are made with a dry rub that had a peppery flavor to it.  You can get sauce on the ribs or on the side by request.  I am not a fan of dry rub so I asked for my ribs wet.  The sauce had a nice little kick to it and it was not too hot.  The ribs were tender and well seasoned and most importantly they were a good size.  If you are not a meat eater, they have an AWESOME fish sandwich as well.

The Bad

The sides…..Often when I visit BBQ restaurants I am often underwhelmed by the sides.  Though the focus is always the meat, the sides are important to me.  If the sides are nasty, them I am just eating pounds of meat and that is not balanced.  The baked beans were a little over cooked, and under seasoned and the collards were a little too spicy for my taste.  They reminded me of the Thanksgiving my mother let my sister make the greens and she put pepper flakes in them to the point we all were in tears.  Just too spicy.

The Verdict

I would certainly make another trip to Epiphany!
