If you’re willing to brave the college crowds to get there, this new three-floor spot, housed in the old Reef space, offers an experience far above Adams Morgan’s usual college-party feel. The smaller first-floor bar is great for a casual drink and bar snacks such as an andouille corn dog with house-made cheese Whiz, but it’s the second floor that’s the most striking, with floor-to-ceiling windows and a display of vintage coveralls hanging from one wall (once worn by roofers). Ripple chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley’s menu of small plates includes such playful offerings as a sweetbread po’ boy and a fudge sundae with pretzels; the choice of drinks runs from well-made cocktails to unusual wines to 22 draft beers, many of which are a reasonable $6. When it opens, the third level will be yet another option for drinking, as you take in sweeping views of the DC skyline.
