A couple weeks ago we learned about the new restaurants coming to Upshur Street, the unnamed Japanese-French restaurant and Petworth Citizen, from Paul Ruppert of Room 11, The Passenger and more. At that time we heard he was shooting for an early October opening of Petworth Citizen. In what almost never happens – they are ahead of schedule and are soft opening tomorrow (Wed.) night! I was able to stop by for a preview and took tons of photos.

A couple things to note – they have their own smoker.

The reading room will be ready in about a month. In that room they will host literary events and have a free library on the walls.

Also, they have their own smoker. Also, I can’t freaking wait to try the brisket.

The menu is similar in style to Room 11’s in that it is not huge. But the items I had were delicious. I had the chorizo burger and potato fishcake fritters.

All I can say is, I’ve dreamed of this day for over 10 years.
