1001 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
From a press release:
“After 167 years, America’s third oldest, continuously operating restaurant, Tadich Grill, will open its doors on the East Coast on Thursday, October 1 at the corner of 10th and Pennsylvania Ave, N.W.
Located strategically between the White House and the Capitol, the D.C. version of this iconic restaurant will be at the pulse of the political district, just as the original is in the heart of San Francisco’s financial district.
Staying true to its roots, the Tadich Grill tradition of fine seafood and meats grilled over mesquite, established in San Francisco, will continue in Washington, D.C. Under the direction of Executive Chef Wil Going, menus will be prepared from scratch and printed daily, serving the freshest seafood, meats, poultry and produce available.
Tadich Grill is larger than the San Francisco original, with 175 seats in the main dining room, 16 seats at the bar and 20 seats in the lounge area. It will also offer an outdoor patio that seats 54 and private dining room that will seat up to 42, which are two more features that are specific to the D.C. location.
Dinner service will be offered at the restaurant Monday through Thursday from 5pm to 10pm, Friday and Saturday from 5 pm to 11 pm, with lunch and take-out service to follow in subsequent weeks. Starting spring of 2016, weather permitting, Tadich Grill will also offer outside seating specifically for the take-out service (on 10th Street, NW), separate from its full-service outdoor patio on Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.
One distinctive difference that will make guests rejoice is that Tadich Grill in Washington, D.C. will take reservations as well as customers coming in on a walk-in basis.”
