Copycat Co.

Copycat Co. located on H. St NE offers Northern Chinese street fare such as skewers and steamed bao along with creative drinks upstairs created by Barmini veteran Devin Gong.  In addition to a permanent cocktail menu loaded with the classics, bartenders rotate through weekly (hand-drawn!) specialty menus featuring toddys, daiquiris, juleps, and more.  Closest Metro is Union Station.

 

I tried the June Daisy made with lemon, green chartreuse, and singani - a Bolivian spirit made from old muscat grapes.  It was like lemonade and right up my alley.


Keith ordered a Gin Smash made with muddled lemon, mint, sugar, and gin.  It was served in a cute copper mug and has a nice slushy consistency. It reminded me of a lemon mojito.


For a snack, we ordered the Chicken & Mushroom Potstickers.  They were pan fried and had nice flavor, served with a soy vinegar dipping sauce.

Overall, the vibe at Copycat Co. was laid back and fun.  It was very crowded in the upstairs bar, while the take-out counter downstairs looked empty.  But this bar is a perfect stop during your H St NE bar crawl.
