In Dec. 2012 we learned that the new restaurant, from Owners of the Blaguard, coming to Petworth next to Qualia Coffee would be applying for a liquor license. At that time we learned they’d be “serving Mediterranean and American cuisine”. Now we’ve got a name – Homestead – and some more details on the restaurant. From the owners:
Our food concept is going to focus on local, fresh, artisanal products. We will have an 1,100 sq/ft kitchen and another 1,100 sq/ft 75 seat dining room with a long communal/banquet style table as a centerpiece. We are planning an incorporation of global ingredients into traditional American dishes like Mac-n cheese, butternut squash soup, and short ribs. Nearly everything will be made in-house or by local producers of breads, desserts and coffee to showcase the local DC food scene. Classic favorites like beef stew, venison chili, cured meats, steak frites, mussels, and bison burgers are just a few examples of some items that will be found on our menu. Rotational and seasonal items will be common.
We are very excited to open our doors to the community and contribute positively to the changing landscape of Petworth.
Construction should start mid-end of April with an anticipated opening of Fall 2013.
