Olivia’s Diner opens on 19th Street today in the former G Street Food space just south of Dupont. Definitely looking forward to checking them out but note – at the moment they won’t be open 24 hours/day:
This is the spot from the owners of City Tap House coming to former Tuscana West space across from Franklin Square park. You can see their NYC location’s menus here. Looks like the designers are the same folks who built out Provision No. 14 on 14th Street:
“On Wednesday, July 1, DC’s truly authentic Spanish restaurant, Taberna Del Alabardero, will kick off a month long celebration of Paella. To kick off the celebration, Taberna’s executive chef Javier Romero, will show his mastery and technique to cook the Paella on the outdoors patio area and give free tastings to the first 200 people who join the celebration.
Paella, a traditional mainstay of Spanish culture, is one of the most popular dishes on the restaurant’s menu, and a favorite of DC food critics and foodies alike. The free tastings start at 5:00 pm until the last morsel of Paella is finished.
Throughout the summer, Taberna’s menu offerings include new approaches and techniques to classic tapas and recipes that are fresh, organic and vegetarian. New creations that are incorporated into menus seasonally showcase the range of authentic Spanish cuisine and provide an opportunity to share Spanish culture.
WHEN: Wednesday, July 1, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
WHAT: Free Paella Tastings (for the first 200 people)
WHERE: Taberna Del Alabardero, 1776 I St., NW, (18th St. btwn H & I)”
