Beuchert’s Saloon is a neighborhood restaurant and bar serving up a ‘farm American’ dining experience in the historically rich Eastern Market neighborhood of Washington, DC. With ingredients sourced from our family farm, Executive Chef Andrew Markert translates local, fresh produce into playful American fare with a creative twist.

The Chef: Andrew Markert

A true rogue in the kitchen, Markert is known for cooking with an edge and attitude all his own, bringing a new energy to fine dining. He has gained national recognition for his talents, showcasing his skills on the Food Network’s hit TV show Chopped in 2011.

Markert is a graduate of Johnson and Wales University in Providence, RI. He has worked at critically acclaimed Washington, DC area restaurants Citronelle, Notti Bianche, Vermilion, Tallula, Hook, and most recently as the Chef de Cuisine at PS7s in Chinatown.

The Original

The original Beuchert’s Saloon was founded in this same location in 1880 by John Ignatius Beuchert, a German immigrant and prominent Capitol Hill businessman. Legend has it that throughout Prohibition, Beuchert’s operated as a speakeasy, behind such fronts as a Singer sewing machine store and a gramophone shop.

In resurrecting this neighborhood mainstay, the new owners have gone to great lengths to maintain the incredible history of the building, handling most of the build-out themselves. Partner and designer August Paro meticulously recreated period-appropriate fixtures and finishes, inspired by the amazing history of this long-standing Capitol Hill establishment.
