Brickside Opens On Cordell Avenue


  Brickside Food & Drink, the bar and restaurant with a prohibition-era theme and diverse menu from the owners of Adams Morgan's Grand Central, opened last night on Cordell Avenue. The 4,000-square-foot space at 4866 Cordell Ave. (some have called it cursed) has seen high turnover in recent years. But the team behind Grand Central feels its partnership with Virginia chef Andrea Pace and his partner Reem Arbid can be successful in a stretch of Woodmont Triangle that is seeing a rejuvenation of sorts. Smoke BBQ (4858 Cordell Ave.) opened earlier this month a few doors down and Tommy Joe's owner Alan Poho is building a 6,200-square-foot, two-floor restaurant complete with an upstairs patio on the corner of Cordell and Norfolk Avenues. The flagship franchise of California Tortilla moved across the street in October for a roomier location at 4871 Cordell Ave. Pace, a fine dining chef at Villa Mozart in Fairfax, brings a different type of bar food than you'll find at Cordell Avenue sports bars Maggie's and Caddie's on Cordell. Appetizers include a salumi dish ($15.95), assorted marinated olives ($3.95), roasted cauliflower with tahini sauce ($6.95) and polenta fries with blue cheese dip ($3.95). Entrees include pastas, hamburgers, pizzas, paninis and a selection of meat and fish dishes starting at $9.95. Co-owner Brian Vasille said he sees Brickside as a sports bar also, so he outfitted the place with a giant projection screen. The drink menu includes some exclusive $8 cocktails and martinis, but also standards such as $3 cans of National Bohemian and Pabst Blue Ribbon.
