In the past seven months, Ethan Stowell’s Capitol Hill seafood restaurant Anchovies and Olives has seen the arrival of a new chef, a remodel, and now an expanded happy hour menu. The so-called power hour that runs from 5 to 6pm daily, and again from 10 till 11 now has a few more food and drink items to accompany those $1 oysters.
Now on the menu: the bigoli. Stowell has said before that this thick spaghetti-resembling noodle tossed with anchovies, chili, garlic and toasted breadcrumbs would be his choice as a last meal. Granted, he meant the final meal of a lifetime, but the $10 portion now offered up during happy hour means it can be your last meal of the night.
Power hour also means $5 wine and prosecco, and $2 Peronis. And now the entire selection of bottled beers is half off. On Friday and Saturdays, all this happy hour action goes down in the bar area only.
