1336 U Street, NW

Newtown Kitchen & Bar opened up last night in the former Tabaq space at 1336 U St, NW.

“Our seasonal menu showcases market dishes by Chef / Owner Howsoon H.O. Cham crafted from ingredients supplied by local farmers, fishermen & meat ranchers from Frederick Maryland to West Virginia. Master Mixologist Seembad Jaudally of Ciroc Nation created one of U Street’s most distinctive and fresh bar program to compliment the restaurant’s modern concept.”

You can see more background and the menus here.

    I just followed the link to read the original post on this restaurant, and I was immediately turned off by the Unnecessary capitalization of Random words in Their press release. (Not to mention using the phrase “most unique.”)

    So the drink menu (I just can’t bring myself to use the phrase “bar program”) was designed by someone who works for a supplier? Is this common?

    I imagine that branding considerations would trump taste in an arrangement like this — not a good thing. And that’s not even getting into my opinion of Ciroc itself (not good).

    Kind of an awkward name given the mid-December timing (though it looks like they’re spelling it “New Town” — with a space — on their awnings).

    “NEW TOWN : a planned urban center created in an undeveloped area designed to serve a mix of residential & commercial needs.

    A little pricey but the menu seems very down to earth and not pretentious, welcomed addition. I look forward to trying the place out

    It’s New Town, not Newtown.
