The Mayflower(R) Renaissance(R) Washington, DC Hotel Announces Edgar Bar & Kitchen

New Bar and Restaurant Concept Opened December 21, 2012

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/04/13 -- The Washington, DC luxury hotel that has a long history of serving DC's locals and visitors alike over power lunches and after work cocktails brought this tradition back on December 21st with the opening of Edgar Bar & Kitchen. Located in the footprint of the original restaurant space with entrances in the lobby and on Connecticut Ave., Edgar replaces the former Town & Country and Café Promenade and promises a contemporary twist to the iconic hotel. Bringing the spirit of the grand bar back to Connecticut Ave., Edgar embraces the history of its legendary location and is poised to become an iconic yet modern fixture within DC's social and cultural scene.

Designed by award-winning New York firm AvroKo, responsible for popular New York restaurants such as Beauty & Essex, The Hurricane Club and Saxon & Parole, Edgar encompasses dark woods, leathers and antique mirrors to set the mood while incorporating key features such as the original 1920's floors in areas throughout the restaurant. The dining room accommodates up to 166 people with a private dining room also available with seating for 50. The setting is ideal for individuals who want a quick bite before a meeting to couples who want to share plates and small bites before a night out in DC as well as larger parties who want to celebrate over a great meal.

An upscale, modern eatery, Edgar features traditional American brasserie cuisine and authentically crafted cocktails. Handcrafted "cocktail couture" marks The Mayflower Renaissance's return to the iconic bar scene. Like the much-loved Town & Country Bar, Edgar is the place to toast with a classic beverage, but a creative and artisanal cocktail menu is the new star. Ingredients like house-made syrups, infused Vodkas, aged-Bourbons and a selection of crafted bitters dominate the list. Cocktails include Pom-Blackberry Balsamic Bourbon with Robbins Family Farm Aged Blackberry Balsamic, Earl the Pearl featuring earl grey tea-infused Belvedere vodka, Rosemary Citrus-tini with house made syrup and rosemary herbs and Bluecoat Cucumber Collins featuring Bluecoat American Dry Gin, among others.

Chef Andrew Morrison, formerly of the Fairmont Pittsburgh and Maison Blanche and Le Mistral in DC, is making his return to the District as the new executive chef. In developing a menu focusing on small plates and innovative twists on American comfort foods, Chef Morrison has focused on serving dishes that have long been a favorite of The Mayflower Renaissance's diners, but with more local ingredients and trend-driven flavors. Dinner options include entrees like Eberly Farm Roasted Chicken and shared plates such as Beer Steamed Blue Hill Mussels. The new bar menu includes sandwiches like the Maryland Crab Cake BLT and Dupont Circle Farmers Market Ciabatta, but flatbreads, small and shared plates take center stage. Graton Village Cheddar and Potato Croquettes, Grilled Artisanal Country Bread with Fresh Ricotta and Homemade Meatballs are among the varied selections.

Edgar also serves Sunday Brunch from 12:00pm - 3:00pm and puts a creative spin on brunch favorites like Strawberry Mascarpone Stuffed Black Cherry Bourbon French Toast, Raspberry Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, Braised Short Rib Sheppard's Pie and a Sweet Potato Skillet with Chicken Apple Sausage. The popular afternoon tea is still served every Saturday from 2:00 - 4:00pm.

Edgar Bar & Kitchen is open every morning for breakfast starting at 6:30am, lunch starting at 11:00am Monday - Friday and noon on Saturdays, dinner starting at 5:00pm each day and the Bar Menu is offered every day from 11:00am - Midnight. Accessible from the street on Connecticut Ave, Edgar is the ultimate stop for hotels guests and non-guests alike.

The 4 star Mayflower® Renaissance® hotel is located at 1127 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20036 near the National Mall, the White House, and numerous other DC attractions.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner is Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., will discuss the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conduct a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply...
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
