1117 V St, NW
It’s been a while since we checked in on the new Japanese restaurant, Izakaya Seki, coming to 1117 V St, NW in the former Spotts Barbershop now located at 809 Florida Ave, NW. I met with the owner yesterday to take a look at the progress. Considering this was a barbershop my mind was blown. While it may not look like much from the outside the inside was gutted to the studs and completely rebuilt. On the first floor there is a huge bar and brand new kitchen equipment behind it. There will be room for 10 to sit and eat at this first floor bar:
If you walk upstairs you’ll see an exposed brick wall and eventually seating for 30.
On the menu you’ll find 30-40 items. There will be no sushi but you will find many seafood options – think braised, grilled and roasted fish. In addition to seafood you’ll find some chicken and pork dishes as well as many vegetable dishes. There will also be udon and soba noodles.
For drinks you’ll find one or two beer on tap plus numerous offerings in cans and bottles. While there will be many Japanese beers (I was told every prefecture has its own microbrew) there will also be some from Korea, Taiwan and some good stuff from the States.
If all goes well they are looking to open in early July.
And they are hiring! They are looking for servers, line cooks, prep cooks, and dishwashers. If you know anyone who’d be interested have them email sekidc(at)gmail(dot)com.
