Great news for Masseria fans and/orSW Waterfront residents from the Washington Post:

“The chef is still working out the details, but he expects the first floor to include a butcher shop, cheese counter and bakery where patrons will be able to buy fresh pasta and other prepared foods such as ragu. The second floor will house an 80-seat trattoria, an Italian eatery that focuses on the country’s southern cuisine and features an a la carte menu of pasta, antipasti, meats and cheeses. The third floor will include a rooftop bar and private dining space for up to 80 people.”

Stay tuned for Spring 2018.

    Nice! Suck it, Eataly.

  • Southwesterly Win

    I think the entire neighborhood just broke out in spontaneous applause.

  • stacksp

    Nick is killing it !!!

  • reality

    Love Masseria!

    Will there be an elevator? Handicapped patrons want to know. Otherwise guess I’ll just be enjoying the first floor store.

    • code

      there will have to be one per the building code, which requires them in new commercial construction.

    • CW

      I would imagine they would be required to install one per the ADA, but I’m not sure. I hope they do have one and you can enjoy it all!

        Yeah, retrofitting old buildings is often not required but in new commercial construction like this where the decorations alone are outrageously expensive the cost of an elevator is considered a reasonable accommodation. I’m sure this place will have one. If not they skirted the ADA.

    • It’s going to be a brand new building, so yes, of course there will.

  • Huge, awesome news. Stefanelli has been killing it in DC for years, glad he’s finally getting his due rewards. Who needs Eataly when we can get a homegrown Italian success?

  • Bloomy

    Oh boy… i really hope this doesn’t follow in the footsteps of Table (Shaw) whose chef opened Menu (a three story establishment near archives, with a market and counter on the first floor, a coffee shop and restaurant on the second, and a mini bar on the third)… failed miserably… sad. But I LOVE Masseria.
