The origins of the British Carving Trolley date back to the 1820s, where cuisine was served in London chess clubs silently so as not to disturb players. At Washington, DC’s new British brasserie, the tradition lives on as Scotts introduces The Knights of F Street: Chess + Scotch at Scotts DC. A new weekly gathering where chess boards come out, friendly competition is waged over fine cask spirits and decadent roasted meats served tableside, the new Knights of F Street, brings time-honored British traditions to this side of the pond.
Chess games are complimentary, and a $10 reservation fee is required to hold a table.
The optional carving trolley menu ranges from $36-$42 per guest and features:
– Succulent roasted beef, roasted lamb, or pork
– Served witha fresh daily vegetable, gravy, creamed horeseradish, mint jelly or apple sauce
– Complimentary Yorkshire pudding
