Roofer's Union launches new summer menu

Chef Jenn Flynn's new menu adds local produce to summer dishes

New and exciting things are coming to Roofer’s Union, a local restaurant in Adam’s Morgan serving classic American dishes by Executive Chef Jenn Flynn. Since its debut on July 20, guests can enjoy a brand new menu that combines both classic and unique mid-Atlantic dishes using local produce.

Flynn wants to work with local products and farmers to supply what she needs at Roofer’s Union. She sources ingredients from producers, including the Adams Morgan Farmers Market and Pennsylvania’s Path Valley Farms Amish collective.

For dinner, starters include classic dishes such as mixed greens ($8), grilled asparagus ($8) and mac and cheese ($9). Other starters, such as chicken liver mousse ($10), garden gazpacho ($9) and burrata ($10) can be found for those who want something a bit more unique. Guests can also enjoy stuffed sausages on a pretzel roll ($12) and stacked sandwiches ($13-$15), both served with the option of either hand-cut fries or mixed greens.

Dinner includes a variety of options. Guests can choose from classic dishes such as the hanger steak ($24), Smoked St. Louis style ribs ($26) and the pan-roasted wild Alaskan halibut ($24), or more unique ones, such as the smoked Peruvian half chicken ($22), beer-steamed PEI mussels ($19) and the housemade spring pea ricotta ravioli ($24). Beer, house cocktails and wine by the glass are served along with starters and supper.

Roofer’s Union has three levels to dine and drink with friends and family. A new rooftop area creates an urban and chic look. Dinner runs from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturdays and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday. Brunch is served bright and early on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
