1324 H Street, NE

Last week we learned that Ocopa had closed for renovations. As predicted it was simply another “closed for renovations” claim. Frozen Tropics has learned:

“I reached out to one of the owners, and he confirmed that Ocopa has closed. He also passed along information about the new restaurant that will take over the space. It’s called Stable, and it’s a Swiss-American concept from chefs David Fritsche and Silvan Kramer.

The projected opening of Stable D.C. is March 2017.”


Stable’s Facebook confirms:

“It’s official. Stable DC is moving to the H street corridor NE in Washington DC. We can’t wait to welcome all of you.

Stable DC,
the first Swiss – American inspired Restaurant in the Nations Capital”

After the jump you can see a menu from a pop up they had at EatsPlace last February. (more…)

From a press release:

“Cousins and fourth generation Washingtonians Nick and David Wiseman will open Hill Prince, a neighborhood bar, early this winter in the Atlas District, located at 1337 H Street NE, between the iconic Atlas Theatre and Rock and Roll Hotel.

Hill Prince will feature a list of classic cocktails, beers and wines, plus a selection of small bites. All drinks on the menu will be $10 or less. Longtime DGS barman Tony Lawson, also a lifelong Washingtonian, will helm the bar as General Manager and Beverage Director. The focus will be on quality ingredients and classic preparations, riding the wave of highly talented beer, wine and spirit producers emerging across the country.

The bar is built in a historic row house with an intimate front bar focused on cocktails, an outdoor central courtyard and a large back bar in a restored carriage house. The building was stripped to its bones – hundred-year-old heart pine floors and brick walls. Brass finishes and leather furniture will accent these original materials.

The front bar is opening in January 2017, while the courtyard and back bar will open later in the Spring. (more…)
