Cleveland Park’s Ardeo+Bardeo Gets A Facelift


Ashok Bajaj is one of my favorite restaurateurs in DC, and his more casual neighborhood spot of Ardeo/Bardeo has always been one of my choice picks within his delicious empire. So when I heard that the Cleveland Park eat place and wine bar were merging to get a new look, I was excited to see what it was all about.

Last night, Ashley and I attended a media unveiling of the new merged space “Ardeo+Bardeo”. The most noticeable change is the GIANT zinc bar floating in the middle of the space. For visuals, POP has a good peek into the space. What was once a wall is now a gorgeously-lit bar space with 24 seats, and the walls are decorated with blown-up black and white photographs from the early 1900s.

The concrete floors keep the feel modern, and an addition of a woodfire pizza grill makes flatbreads possible (I recommend the olive, onion and goat cheese flatbread, delicious). Small plates and savory snacks are priced between $3-$15 and entrées are offered between $12-$25. Check out the new Ardeo+Bardeo at 3311 Connecticut Ave, right down the block from the Cleveland Park metro station.
