Pearl Dive Oyster Palace & Black Jack Coming to Logan Circle

Exciting news about the restaurant coming to 1612 14th St, NW. We’ve been monitoring this property very closely. But now there are lots more details to share. Firstly the bar upstairs will be called Black Jack and the restaurant downstairs will be called Pearl Dive:

Secondly, as I was waking by the store I also noticed, in addition the poster above, a rendering of what the outside will look like:

Thirdly, Tom Sietsema of the Washington Post shares some great details:

“Logan Circle is netting another restaurant, this time from chef Jeff Black, who announced today that he’s buying the building at 1612 14th St. NW on October 20 and calling it The Pearl Dive Oyster Palace. The two-story venue, which he hopes to open in time for Valentine’s Day, will feature an oyster bar and 75-seat dining room on the street level and an upstairs bar — with a bocce ball court — called BlackJack.”

This sounds amazing, can’t wait for Valentine’s Day!

And finally, I’m not sure if it is big enough but after the jump you can see the architectural designs including what both floors will look like.
