From a press release:
“Winter of 2012, restaurateurs and chefs Ari Gejdenson (AcquaAl 2) and Erik Yang (Toki Underground) will open a new restaurant in Washington D.C. helmed by Chef Johnny Spero (Komi and Townhouse) under the name of SŪNA. The food will offer Spero’s unique perspective on modern progressive cuisine reflecting both his professional and personal experiences. SŪNA’s menu will be based on sustainability, a conscious effort in regards to sourcing, supporting local farms, sustainability, and what is available regionally and by season.”
Toki chef Erik Yang revealed the space will be in Eastern Market but didn’t reveal an exact location. So I have a couple guesses for where they may look – the old BaBay space at 633 Pennsylvania Ave, SE or the old Village Gallery at 705 North Carolina Ave, SE. I don’t know if I’d call BaBay as Eastern Market but it has the advantage of already having a kitchen. The old Village Gallery space would need a complete build out but it is right outside Eastern Market. You have any guesses of where the new restaurant may be located?
