New Hawk and Dove signage sprouted back in November. Finally comes word (and photos) of their opening from the folks at Capitol Hill Corner:

The Hawk & Dove expects to open on Thursday, January 17, according to manager Jack McAuliffe. The restaurant was originally scheduled to open in February, but moved its debut up, in part, to take advantage of Inauguration traffic. McAuliffe, until recently the general manager at Boxcar, another Xavier Cerveras enterprise, said, “we want to bring a totally different experience to the block – try to do something new with a fun feel.”

The Hawk & Dove will be open at 4:30pm initially (including Inaugural Day) but will start serving lunch on Friday, January 25th.

      Time to move on…

  • So this is all well and good, but when are they going to bother to get Park Tavern open? It’s been sitting there, looking pretty much done, for a month. What’s the hold up?

    • I think I read somewhere they’re waiting for some permits to go through.

    Where will the Park Tavern be?

    The new place looks insane. I walked past and the doors were open. I looks like an Old West Saloon. I expect to see someone get shot and fall off a banister.

      In reality, if you wander in off the dusty streets of olde Capitol Hill on a Sunday morning at about 1 AM, you’ll see some 22-year-old intern drink one shot too many. And fall off a bannister.
