1316 9th St, NW

More great restaurant news for the 1300 block of 9th St, NW. In addition to A n D Tavern coming to 1314 9th St, NW from the owner of Seasonal Pantry, comes news of ‘Sherman Golden’ coming to 1316 9th St, NW. The Blagden Alley Naylor Court Association wrote:

“Sherman Golden is planning to open a new Restaurant on the Street Level of 1316 9th Street which will occupy the entire first floor (the Nine Condo is upstairs). It sounds very exciting, 75 seats, affordable, a great chef… he will be here to discuss his plans, concept and hours of operations, liquor license plans (CR), etc. To get a sense of the restaurant they told me the space is about the same size as Boundary Road a relatively new restaurant at 414 H St NW.”

Ed. Note: Sherman Golden has no affiliation with Boundary Road.

What I did learn is that Sherman Golden comes from the head bartender of Maple located on 11th St, NW in Columbia Heights. I hear the architect/contractor from Maple (remember their great bar?) will also build out Sherman Golden. More info as it becomes available.

  • I hope the architect/contractor will ramp the one step, to provide wheelchair access.

    1. Does Mr. Golden have any restaurant management experience? We don’t need a repeat of Back Alley Waffles
    2. Who is the chef going to be?

      Unfortunately, Golden is not this mans last name. It is his middle name. No one at the Blagden Alley meeting got the real one. Also, there is no chance this will be another BAW. This place costs serious money to rent. Negations have been going on for months. The space is almost restaurant ready, so this should be happening soon.

        WOW, I can’t believe spell check didn’t get me on “negotiations”.

    This is very exciting news for 9th Street. To replace this Torti Gallas blinds drawn office with a restaurant is fantastic. I don’t quite understand who or what Sherman Golden is but he’s not the chef, who is apparently yet to be announced. Maple Restaurant is beautiful so I look forward to great things with this space.

      I just have to say: the post before mine is MB, who is my mom in VA, and I am overseas in Jordan a half a world away and we, who are infrequent posters, were drawn to post on the same page within one minute of each other. I love her!!!

    Torti Gallas does soul destroying work and typically don’t take into account accessibility. I hope they don’t ruin this one!
