7th and D Streets NW
From a press release:
Chicago-based PROTEIN BAR will open a Washington, DC restaurant Wednesday, August 22 at the corner of 7th and D Streets NW in Penn Quarter, the first of several planned location in the DC metropolitan area. With a high protein, nutrition-rich and healthy carb menu, Protein Bar is designed for professionals on the go.
PROTEIN BAR ‘s menu will include customizable high-protein blended drinks, bowls, fresh-made chili, soups, salads, and the signature PROTEIN BAR-RITOs. Mindful of freshness and quality, PROTEIN BAR sauces and dressings are made in-house daily. All menu items are high in protein and fiber and low in empty calories and refined sugar. PROTEIN BAR uses organic, all-natural, and locally-sourced ingredients and provides a complete list of all nutritional information and ingredients for their entire menu.
Matt Matros, founder of PROTEIN BAR, opened the first restaurant in Chicago in May 2009 after shedding 60 pounds by following a high-protein diet. He created the eatery as a place where healthy food that provides the right balance of protein, good fat and healthy carbs can be universally accessible and affordable.
PROTEIN BAR at 7th and D Streets NW will serve seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. until 9 p.m., Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. until 8 p.m., Saturday and 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., Sunday.
