Unum Opens in Georgetown – Check out the Menu

From a press release:

Today, Unum, located at 2917 M St. NW in Georgetown, opens to the public, serving dinner seven nights a week. Owners and husband and wife Phillip Blane and Laura Schiller plan to begin serving Saturday and Sunday brunch in this former Mendocino Grille location within the next few weeks.

The intimate and contemporary 50-seat neighborhood restaurant offers new American cuisine in a warm and dynamic space that also includes a 12-seat bar. Blane, who serves as Executive Chef, has created a menu that marries his East Coast cooking experiences with his international travels, so guests can expect to find dishes such as Indian spiced lamb shank with cauliflower, raisins, cashews and cilantro-mint chutney and desserts such as Ricotta beignets with cardamom blueberry sauce. Appetizers are priced $8-12 and entrees $14-$24. The complete dinner menu is included below.

Unum also serves a special bar menu with soups, salads and snacks, such as Cod and chorizo tater tots, creamy truffle mac and cheese, an Unum burger, and a selection of cheese and charcuterie.

Unum offers more than a dozen wines by the glass, as well as a 60+ bottle list, and a rotating selection of craft beer and cocktails. The wine list has a strong focus on California wines as well as labels from old and new world wine regions, with an emphasis on value selections in the $30 to $60 price range.

Unum is located at 2917 M St. NW, Washington DC. For reservations or more information, please call 202-621-6959 or visit the website at
