What sets Bantam King apart from the rest of DC's quick-casual eateries? Well, ask a few regulars at this newly opened restaurant and they'll probably have a lot to say.
To start with, Bantam King focuses on serving a couple of very different specialties: hot, steaming bowls of traditional Japanese ramen, as well as plates of Southern-style crispy-golden fried chicken with buttermilk biscuits, mac and cheese, and mashed potatoes with gravy. If either of these options sounds good to you, consider grabbing a couple of friends and heading on over next time you're hungry. The restaurant itself is sleek, casual, and brightly decorated, with both bar and communal table seating available, and based on the numerous rave reviews in the short time it's been open, it seems that Bantam King is here to stay.
