You win some, you lose some. More info on that giant roof deck emerging over Florida Ave from Takoda:

“Shaw welcomes TAKODA, an American restaurant and year-round rooftop beer garden featuring 24 American Draft Beers, 51+ American Whiskeys, and an exciting twist on Americana cuisine!”

Shaw’s burgeoning restaurant and bar scene is arguably the hottest in Washington, with a slew of new projects. The next big name in the neighborhood: TAKODA, an American restaurant and year-round rooftop beer garden from hospitality entrepreneurs Ryan Seelbach and Eric Lund. The two-story space at 715 Florida Ave., Northwest is being built from scratch in a 1920’s-era brick structure, originally a Federal Life Insurance building.

Edit Lab at Streetsense (Red Hen, Daikaya) is behind the classic-industrial look of the entry-level bar and dining area, and 120-person beer garden above. Guests on the first floor will find two and four-person booths and seated tables, surrounded by the building’s original brick walls and wood ceiling beams. The roof deck will be accented with hanging and potted plants around a horseshoe-shaped bar, and will be partially covered with a canopy system. Removable windows allow for year-round eating and drinking with an outdoor feel.

Check out their menu here.

Now hiring so standby for an opening date.
