PoP Preview – The Chesapeake Room

This new restaurant nearing opening is looking awesome. I had the good fortune to run into their chef, Robert Wood, who let me snap photos. The Chesapeake Room is located at 501 8th Street, SE on Barrack’s Row.

He did say that 30% of the menu would stay the same while 70% changed with the seasons. He is also aiming to keep the majority of the ingredients within 250 miles of DC. I’m can’t wait to try this place out when they open.
