Proper 21 Properly Opening October 21

1319 F Street, NW

From a press release:

“Proper 21, brought to DC from the New York City restaurateurs that own Manhattan Proper and Proper West, will open to the public on Friday, October 21, 2016. Located at 1319 F Street [formerly Noelia], Proper 21 will be a high-end sports bar serving All American classics with a gourmet twist created by Executive Chef Edward Janda. Proper 21 is the third location of NIEUW Group Inc.

Like its predecessors, located in New York City, Proper 21 will serve contemporary American cuisine. The space will maintain the modern aesthetic and New York style of the Manhattan locations, which have best been described as Tom Ford meets Thomas Edison. Owner Will Strozier is responsible for bringing that aesthetic to life. The restaurant will provide the best audio visual for sports, corporate functions, nightlife and other events.

Providing the very best cuisine by using locally sourced and fresh ingredients, Executive Chef Janda will assist in yielding an offering that is familiar, yet unique and delicious. Menu items include Chimichurri Shrimp, Truffle Burger, Orecchiette Pasta, Citrus Salmon and Steak Frites. Proper 21 will offer lunch and dinner.

Janda learned about food from his grandfather at an early age, making classic Italian food with him from scratch for simple family dinners. His love of food began to grow when he started working in a small Italian restaurant in his hometown of Washington, NJ. In 2006 he enrolled at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City. Since then Janda has worked for the Jean Georges group, The Rose Group (a large private catering company on the Upper East Side), Fig & Olive in New York and Los Angeles, The Smith and Tavern on the Green. He joined the NIEUW Group in 2015, working closely with proprietors Rob Zahn and Will Strozier.

The beverage program will place a strong emphasis on brand recognition. The offerings will consist of a premium assortment of popular and small batch liquors, locally crafted beers and a quality wine selection. The wine program showcases wines from top regions in Italy, France and the United States. The beer program will be ever changing focusing on widely known selections, as well as locally crafted seasonal beers.”
