Food Tweet of the Week: Senart’s

S 005

Senart’s Oyster & Chop House is officially one month (and a week) old. So far the verdict is: huge success – just try getting a seat at the bar during happy hour.

But on Twitter, where you can follow the restaurant at @SenartsDC, it sadly only has 15 followers and has only tweeted 6 times! I guess this goes to show that a restaurant really can do well sans Twitter these days.

Their tweets, though few, are neighborhood-ish, informative, and fun. I wonder what they could do if they Tweeted more.

The The raw bar happy hour runs from 3:00pm – 6:00pm & 11:00pm – 1:00am, and who doesn’t love half price? If not, like I wrote before, go for the Seafood Lasagna “Cippino Style” or Maine Lobster Roll Sliders.

Or go in for just a drink and admire the beauty of the restaurant you are in, as well as its history. If you didn’t already know this, the Senart family lived in the tw0-story building between 1913 and 1939 and served bar fare and fresh oysters on the first. As you can tell, it’s all now restored. So go check it out and follow Senart’s on Twitter!

Senart’s Oyster & Chop House is located at 520 Eighth St. SE. The closest metro stop is Eastern Market (Blue/Orange Lines). For more information, call 202-544-1168.
