From a press release:
“pro·vi·sion (verb) “supply with food, drink, or equipment, especially for a journey.” Dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and a design that melds the nostalgia of early American charm with wanderlust warmth, set a stunning backdrop for a comprehensive program of libations and creative, communal cuisine at the soon-to-open new Provision No. 14. Occupying an impressive corner space on 14th & V NW, Provision No. 14 is the first project from the newly formed Social Restaurant Group, and is projected to open in late March 2015.
The culinary program at Provision No. 14 will well complement its energetic design, featuring a menu of communal, creative American cuisine designed to be shared at the table among friends. The menu will feature a list of updated, modern takes on classic fondues and a snack menu composed of several playful dishes. Guests are encouraged to taste a wide selection of snack plates and experience the array of fun foods. Provision No. 14’s menu will also feature a selection of daily rotating communal boards, a raw cut wood plank featuring an entrée, and complementing side dishes ideal for sharing.
Featuring 20 draft lines, a beer program that curates small-batch brewers from around the globe and large format bottled cocktails, Provision No. 14 shares a thoughtful and comprehensive beverage program with a diverse selection of uniquely dynamic libations. A hallmark of Provision No. 14’s beverage program will be a selection of no less than six large format bottled cocktails, ideal for sharing. The bottled cocktails will be 750 ml, the same as a bottle of wine, offering a fun alternative to the standard shared beverage. Provision No. 14’s beverage program will also feature two draft cocktails, two well-crafted frozen cocktails and a menu of signature cocktails.
The bi-level Provision No. 14 space will feature an energetic ambience, with a bar on each floor, a 57 seat dining room, 29 seat bar and a 61 seat seasonal outdoor patio designed by DC shop Swatchroom. The 2nd floor will offer a divers mix of 80 bar seats, couch and high-top seating overlooking the 14th street corridor. The design is a charming tribute to the time in American history when importing and exporting provisions was a new, necessary and regulated endeavor. The historically-inspired palette of the first floor includes a crisp ivory and deep steel blue peppered with textures of khaki, leather and natural burlap. Period specific architectural features such as distressed porch columns and rustic, salvaged screen-doors mix with red metal oil drums, deep indigo denim, burlap and brown paper packages.
The second floor continues the inspiration by melding the mystique ambiance of vintage cigar lounges with deeper tones and spicier textures and shadows. Custom shutters line top-floor windows, translating streetlight into stunning shadows. The design features a ceiling of diffused light from jute lanterns and the juxtaposition of victorian sofas upholstered with a delicate yet military edge.
