Future home of Roofers Union in former Reef space at 2446 18th Street, NW
From a press release:
“Diners looking to get a sneak peek of Chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley’s menu at soon-to-open Roofers Union can preview menu items January 22 and 23 at Ripple, the Chef’s beloved Cleveland Park haunt. Meek-Bradley will serve her creative takes on everyday food alongside her regular menu before Roofers Union opens in Adams Morgan at the end of January.
The Pop-up menu will feature a three-course prix fixe menu with a choice of snacks like fried Brussels sprouts, trotter arancini, and crispy pig ear; an entrée course including a smokey andouille corndog with whiz, a merguez sausage seasoned with mint and served with oranges and spicy harissa, and a black bean quinoa burger topped with avocado; and last but not least, pretzel hot fudge sundae or Boston Crème layer cake for dessert. Diners can choose one of each for just $25. Also included in the price is one handcrafted beer from DC’s own 3 Stars Brewery.
Signature cocktails from Roofers Union’s bar menu will also be available for additional cost. This will be the first endeavor for Roofers Union’s newest addition to the team, Bar Manager Josh Fatemi, formerly of Bourbon, Pearl Dive and Black Jack.
When it opens at the end of January, Roofers Union will feature house-made sausages stuffed with inspired ingredients, approachable entrees done just right and a variety of bar snacks, perfect for a casual yet sophisticated night out. Menu items range from $12-$24, allowing diners to choose two items while keeping the bill under $25. Meek-Bradley plans to launch a brunch menu in the spring, which diners can enjoy from one of the best rooftops in the city.
The bar program will focus on craft beers and cocktails. Ripple’s precedent of delicious, hard to find wines will be evident at Roofers Union, where guests will find 10 to 12 labels by the glass on a moderately priced wine list from around the world.
To make reservations for the limited time pop-up, call Ripple at 202.244.7995 or emailing [email protected] Ripple’s regular restaurant service will be available at the bar and in the main dining room.
Roofers Union is located at 2446 18th St NW and will be open at 5pm daily, with weekend brunch to be announced.”
