Diners familiar with the original Dupont Circle location will find a lot in common, except this location is bigger. Like, a lot bigger. At 12,000 square-feet, it’s nearly double the size of the original outpost. The massive space includes 600 feet of balcony, a patio, and four bars on multiple levels (one of which is 150 feet around, making it the largest in DC, the owners say).
“We’re almost more excited for Navy Yard than Nats Park,” says restaurateur Fritz Brogan, who owns the restaurant and Hawthorne on U Street with Reed Landry. It doesn’t hurt that the restaurant will have a built-in clientele. On top of baseball game crowd, the 1221 Van Street apartment complex is right above them.
