D Bar Reopens Friday, Spotlighting Dining, Drinks and Desserts in New Uptown Home

There are two things that restaurateur and Food Network chef Keegan Gerhard wants you to know about the new incarnation of D Bar: the new location at 19th and Pennsylvania is finally opening this Friday after a couple of months of delays, and it's not a dessert bar. Or more accurately, D Bar is not just a dessert bar. The new restaurant features a larger dining room with more than twice the seating of the old location and an ample bar stocked with beer, wine and liquor. There's still a dessert bar -- Gerhard's magic with pastries gaurantees a spotlight on sweets -- but the move to bigger digs means the restaurant can finally become what he and co-owner (and wife) Lisa Bailey intended all along.
