Epic Smokehouse Wafting Into Pentagon City Soon

Epic Smokehouse
Barbecue will get an urban upgrade at Epic Smokehouse slated to open in Pentagon City, Arlington on September 10. This ambitious venture will pair fancy cocktails and steakhouse quality wines with moderately priced, globally accented meat and seafood in a clubby setting targeting business and happy hour crowds.

The Food: Bacon will flavor everything from its signature burger to a candied bacon cupcake dessert.  Prime rib and sea bass will be featured as well as ‘cue classics. The bar menu melds BBQ with tacos, Asian dumplings and a Hawaiian-style pig wrap.

The Drink: Classic cocktails will be on the menu featuring a few twists, such as bacon infused bourbon, and seasonal produce will add punch to handcrafted drinks. The wine list will skew American, and the bar will also be well-stocked with draft and bottled beer.

The Decor: Repurposed barn wood and brushed concrete creates a feel of upscale rusticity with a decidedly masculine edge. There will be an dining bar facing the open kitchen, and for those who like to dine alfresco, an outdoor patio looks like it will be a primo gathering spot in an area lacking many such options.
