Big news from the Bloomingdale Blog spotted in the Bates Area Civic Association Meeting Agenda for April 6, 2015 7:00pm

“Sam and Rachel Fitz, Basque Bar LLC – Restaurant at 300 Florida Ave NW

CityPaper previously reported:

“Beer aficionado Sam Fitz is leaving his position as bar manager of Pizzeria Paradiso over the next month to open his own place with his sister Rachel Fitz. He’s not revealing a lot of the details at this time, but the business will be in D.C. and take inspiration from a cider-focused trip he took to the French and Spanish Basque country last February. He’s registered an LLC for “Basque Bar.

Columbia Heights/Adams Morgan folks may recognize Sam from his time as Beer Director and Cicerone at Meridian Pint and Smoke and Barrel. He also judged 14 beers for us.

Updates when more is known.
