Owner Gregg Holcomb and chef Jesse Elliott of Capitol Hill's Southern-inspired craft cocktail spot Witness have opened this new restaurant in the space of the late, legendary LGBTQ hangout and bar/restaurant/venue Broadway Grill, which closed after 22 years in 2013. (Back then, The Stranger's Dominic Holden mourned the loss of the spot's "racy menu of grilled chicken with whipped yams," "glass chandelier that looked like Carmen Miranda's headgear on steroids," and "plastic clientele that looked like Carmen Miranda's backup dancers on Social Security.") The new spot is named in tribute to both the notorious Capitol Hill bootlegger Roy Olmstead and to the Olmsted brothers, who designed Volunteer Park, and features tropical cocktails and New American comfort fare. Also: gold owl-shaped goblets.
