200 Upshur St, NW
Back in Oct. 2010 we first learned that the Hitching Post, located at 200 Upshur St, NW (across the street from the Old Soldiers Home) at the corner of Rock Creek Church Rd, and Upshur, was for sale. Well – I’ve got good news and bad news: The Hitching Post has sold. The Hitching Post has been bought by the owner of Fusion located at 4815 Georgia Ave, NW.
The Hitching Post has been owned by one of the nicest families you’ll ever meet – the Carters. Danny Harris wrote a great profile on Mr. Carter back in Sept. 2009.
At that time Mr. Carter said:
“I think that our music box has also been a big addition to our popularity. We carry a mixture of music, much of it dating back to the 1940s. I still enjoy listening to Big Band, it has always been a part of my repertoire. We have some of our favorite artists such as Nat King Cole, Jo Stafford, and Chet Baker. A lot of the music is quiet music, nothing that is going to blow you out of here. We do have a little music that would be attractive to the younger generation, but most of our music is for a subtle dining atmosphere. With that Ipod you can collect more of what is available, but the music box still has something that you can’t replace, nostalgia. I think that in time, the music box is going to be an old dinosaur, just like the Carters!
Now the good news – the owner of Fusion, Barry Dindyal and his family are also among the nicest you’ll ever meet. If you’ve never met Barry or his family you can do so on Thurs. June 28 for Fusion customers appreciation day from 5pm-9pm at 4815 Georgia Ave, NW.
Additionally there is not going to be a huge change with the space. They are keeping the name Hitching Post and the famous fried chicken! The menu will not be Indian like Fusion. It will be an affordable American style spot. They will also offer Saturday and Sunday brunch, a great outdoor patio, a new happy hour and most entrees will be between $12-$15. Hitching Post’s last day will be July 31st and they will reopen Aug. 7th.
