I forget who told me that the menu at Science Club was fully vegetarian/heavily vegan, but my initial reaction was “They serve food?” I’ve only known Science Club as a great bar in Dupont, but never even thought about ordering a meal. Once I found out though, I was itching to go.
I recruited Drew and she seemed equally excited…
They take the science theme pretty far with posters (periodic table of elements, anyone?), props (think the microscope you used in 8th grade science) and chalkboards. Housed in a what appears to be a converted row house, you can’t help but think the Munsters may have been former tenants – in a good way! With dimly lit chandeliers and dark wood furniture, the overall ambiance is retro geek chic done well.
Snapping us back to the present, twitter showed up again in our meal, this time from the friendly account handlers of Science Club giving a great recommendation:
The fries were amazing! Whatever they season them with was downright addicting. Drew and I polished them off, possibly giving the waitress side-eye when she tried to take the plate when it still had a few stragglers.
We didn’t just get fries though. We also ordered the Green Garden Roll which was made up of avocado, cucumbers, tofu and carrots wrapped in rice paper. The peanut dressing served on the side was so good I may have also dipped fries in it, too.
Lastly we got an order of the Tofu Skewers to share. Topped with a basil spread, they were delicious. We ate well!
Science Club will always hold a special place in my heart for the time I spent there in my early 20′s, but now that I know I can get a great meal there, I’m sure there’s more of it in my future.
