777 9th Street, NW

A reader reports:

“Looks like the new concept, BOE, for the old Oya space at 777 9th Street has been unveiled. Their twitter feed calls it “Refined American Comfort Fare”.

Doesn’t look like a bad happy hour.”

Ah good timing – I literally just got a press release:

“After more than a decade, what was formerly OYA will reopen as BOE on January 15th, 2016! BOE features refined American comfort fare and traditional favorites with an upgraded twist; an honest and flavor-forward approach to classic American dishes. Experience BOE’s Bourbon Lavender Sour or Apricot Rum Shandy craft cocktails, or indulge in Chef Avinesh Rana’s Cornmeal Dusted Fried Oysters or Pulled Pork Shoulders with Barley Fried Rice.

Situated in an interior epitomizing rustic elegance, BOE’s picturesque environment is a variety of beautiful wood and stone, complimented by soft gemstone colors and the contrast of textures, with the juxtaposition of minimalist modern chic . Like its sister restaurant, SEI, BOE looks forward to being a local Penn Quarter favorite in 2016!”

Menus after the jump.

    Adding truffle oil to something does not refine it.

      I always read “refined ______” in restaurant press releases as meaning “more expensive ______.”

    The HH drinks look good and priced reight. HH food looks ok, though it’s not really any different from any other HH offers so I wonder how well they’ll actually do long term once everyone’s given them a try. OYA’s old hh sushi was fantastic –that’s why I went since not that many places offer good HH sushi. American HH i can count several places in the Chinatown/Metro center area.

    I hope they’ve done something to the walls/ceiling so the space isn’t as loud as Oya was.
