1336 U Street, NW
New awnings are up at the former Newtown (and Tabaq before them) space on U Street for Hawthorne. From an email:
“We’ll be shooting for a grand opening next weekend, with perhaps a soft opening/live bar training this weekend to give friends and neighbors a chance to see the space and check us out. Hawthorne has 4 floors and a basement, including four bar areas, two dining rooms, and an incredible glass rooftop with a 360 degree view of the city and monuments. We’re excited to announce that Stephen Boillon, formerly of Dino and Mothership/El Floridano will be our Executive Chef. Our menu will have classic tavern fare with a emphasis on mussels. We’re excited to join and be a part of this vibrant neighborhood.”
Ed. Note: While their website isn’t live yet – they clearly have a great sense of humor. Looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
