In addition, every night for dinner and every weekday for lunch, their world renowned chefs prepare several sumptuous specials. On Saturdays and Sundays, the restaurant serves an extensive all you can eat country brunch buffet. Their full bar has daily drink specials, making it the place to go for happy hours in DC.
Allison M, a recent visitor to The Front Page Restaurant, had this to say about her experience: “Well, let me assure you, at The Front Page, it is totally worth it. We made our way to the quick-moving front of the line, where we found that they had roasted a whole pig! The chef was pulling the pork to order, and loading up two flour tortillas per person with a generous amount of it. They also had chicken if you weren't feeling porky, and black beans for the vegetarians. There are two bars, a sit-down restaurant, a live DJ, and great deals. Though I didn't try anything but the happy hour/free fare, I would recommend this place to anyone who, like me, tries to D.C. on the cheap!”
About The Front Page Restaurant:
Dick Heidenberger along with partners "Pancho" Bates and "Micky" Tobin were opening a restaurant off DuPont Circle in Washington, D.C. Everything was set except for the name. Dick, having assembled a collection of two Front Pages, thought why not fill the restaurant with famous Front Pages, and name the restaurant The Front Page. The theory being that people love to read about famous events from the past including the Titanic, WWW II, Lindberg, Allen Sheppard, John Glenn, Al Capone and many more. With the help of his partners and friends, he was able to assemble a rather handsome collection of Front Pages as far back as 1892. The Restaurant opened in October 1986 with 120 framed historical Front Pages hung throughout the restaurant. After 20 years, the Front Page at DuPont Circle has been and continues to be, one of the best restaurants in the area.
