From a press release:
“CBRE has arranged a long-term 8,324 square-foot lease for a new American tavern-style restaurant at 700 6th Street NW in Washington. With this lease, local restaurant group Passion Food Hospitality will expand into the Chinatown/Penn Quarter area, a thriving location close to Verizon Center, as well as a hub of business and retail activity.
The restaurant group will build and operate a restaurant and bar called Penn Commons at the Chinatown property, which was completed in 2009 and became one of DC’s first LEED Platinum Core and Shell (CS) certified office buildings. Opening is slated for late summer. The restaurant and bar will be similar to the group’s already successful District Commons restaurant at 2200 Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
Chef Jeff Tunks, David Wizenberg and Gus DiMillo are the partners behind Passion Food Hospitality. They opened their first restaurant, DC Coast, in 1998 and have expanded their style of American eateries to include such restaurants as Acadiana, Burger Tap, & Shake, Ceiba, and PassionFish.”
