While we’re waiting to enjoy the 2023 crop of new food and drink venues popping up around Capitol Hill and the Central District, it’s a great time to explore the favorites we already have. Some of those favorites also are doing something new.
Up north on Broadway, the Corvus and Co. bar is ready for the full reveal on its new kitchen partners as Big Dumpling Energy is celebrating its grand opening this week.
The new menu from BDE’s Dali Yu is built around Chinese dumplings along with some other shareables like Oko or Furikake Fries. You can get the classic dumplings with pork and chives steamed or fried. They’re served with house pickles and dumpling sauce, of course. There are also things to try like the fried Seoul Chicken or Prawn Lotus Sliders.
Corvus hasn’t left its past food and drink spirit completely behind with the change. Big Dumpling Energy has vegan dumpling options as well as treats like the deep fried Seoul Shrooms.
Corvus and Co. debuted on North Broadway in the spring of 2016 with the transformation of the former Byzantion restaurant into a “slightly mystical” dark and boozy hangout.
Seven years later, the old bird is adding a few new tricks and a new energy.
Corvus and Co. and Big Dumpling Energy are located at 601 Broadway E. Learn more at corvusandcompany.com.

The old menu was fantastic, especially for brunch. I guess they must have lost their chef – a shame. Dumplings seem like an odd direction for the space but maybe that’s just me
The dumplings now are INSANE!! I liked the old menu but think the old chef left. Definitely not mad at these dumplings, I can cry thinking about how good they were the other night.
