Social Shareables @ Bell20

If you’re looking for a culinary adventure, Bell20 is a modern American Tavern in the tradition of the European Gastro Pub. Located in the lobby of the Crystal City Marriott at Reagan National Airport, the restaurant is open from 6:30 AM to midnight and offers an array of delectable bites to satiate both weary travelers and workers after a long day at the office. Bell20 recently launched a new menu with a focus on shareable plates.

Bell20’s Executive Chef Pernell Morton believes that using four to five key ingredients and simple, yet well-done techniques are the cornerstone to every great meal. His inspiration for cooking is that he envisions his mother sampling the food, which is fitting since Mother’s Day is this weekend.
