A restaurant called Fork and Spade is coming to the retail space of the new building at 4619 41st Street, NW next to the Dancing Crab in Tenleytown. A recent liquor license posted says Fork ‘n Spade will be a:

“New Restaurant serving American cuisine with various types of live music, DJ, and dancing. Seating is 150. Total occupancy load is 200. Sidewalk Café with approximately 40 seats.”

Their Website says:

The Fork & Spade will be farm-to-table establishment offering innovative American Cuisine with a twist. Our mission is to provide quality, delicious, local, fresh food to the DC Metro Area. We want to bring the area’s best products, raised and grown at local farms, directly to our customers. We plan on doing this three ways; first with a food truck that can hit the roads and literally deliver our food to the community, next by establishing a temporary pop-up restaurant in our brick and mortar space so that we can serve our neighbors as soon as possible, and finally by opening the completed space at 4619 41st Street, NW that will seat approximately 150 guests and serve both lunch and dinner seven days a week. During the summer months there will be additional seating outside on our patio. The Fork & Spade will be a family friendly restaurant that, as our name suggests, will remind our customers of the synergy between the dinner table and the farm.

Culinary Institute of America graduates and Executive Chefs, Alexander Bous, and his fiancee Renee Straus, and Executive Sous Chef Robert Cain, adopt a humble approach to educating guests through delicious food, wine, beer and spirits in a communal environment. Boasting high quality local food and unique menu design, the Fork & Spade will be an elegant yet approachable New American restaurant with regionally influenced plates and beverages in a family friendly atmosphere. Our bar will offer a generous selection of wines and beers by the glass as well as wine and beer flights, non-alcoholic beverages and cocktails that encourage our guests to experience and explore new flavors and sensations.

Ultimately, we will strive to strengthen the bonds of community between farmers, chefs, and our customers by feeding them deliciously prepared, high quality, local food. We are committed to conducting and promoting sustainable business practices on a local, national, and global level. We hope to make our internal community a positive influence on our external community and we believe that by offering our guests a night out that is highly enjoyable and educational, we will create an experience unlike any other. This experience, along with an attractive offering of unique beverages and creative seasonal menus, we believe, is what ‘dinning out’ should be about.
