PORC: Purveyors Of Rolling Cuisine Opening Brick and Mortar Restaurant in Columbia Heights

3412 11th St, NW

Thanks to a PoPville twitter follower for passing on a tweet from the folks at PORC:

“IT’S OFFICIAL: we’ve signed a purchase agreement for a restaurant in Columbia Heights. PORC is going brick and mortar! Details to follow…”

I hear that they will be moving into Acuario located at 3412 11th St, NW between Meridian Pint and Columbia Heights Coffee. Awesome news for Columbia Heights. For those not familiar with PORC, their Facebook page says:

“PORC: Purveyors Of Rolling Cuisine offers the finest in vehicular-based foods. Everything from BBQ to gourmet sausages, to local specialties will be on the menu. Our aim is to serve the best food, period.”

I’m not 100% sure that they’ll be moving into Acuario at 3412 11th St, NW but I’d say it’s very likely. As they tweeted: “Details to follow…”

UPDATE: Confirmed!!!

Purveyors of PORC to Open Brick and Mortar Restaurant in Columbia Heights

Set to open sometime between early spring and fall 2016 (you just never know with these things), the new neighborhood bar and restaurant will offer brick-and-mortar versions of popular PORC offerings and other unique selections.

The restaurant will be located at 3412 11th St. NW in Columbia Heights in the space formerly occupied by Acuario. Details on name and menu offerings will be available in the coming weeks.

The restaurant will be brought to you by the founders of popular food truck, PORC, Josh Saltzman and Trent Allen; and food service veterans, fellow U of Michigan alum Chris Powers and DC-native Peyton Sherwood.

Fans of PORC can breathe a sigh of relief, as the new non-wheeled restaurant will not be sending PORC into retirement. The truck will continue to operate daily around DC.
