After two years of serving our members and community in our Washington, D.C. location, EatsPlace is happy to announce our expansion to a second location in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, at the historic Torpedo Factory Art Center.
Old Town Alexandria is the perfect destination for EatsPlace’s second location, with continuation of focusing on the best local foods and the vintage schoolhouse look of the original. The EatsPlace Cafe and Market at the Torpedo Factory Art Center is a quick-serve concept of eclectic sandwiches with entree salads and soups. It’s a mix of healthy and decadent, which will include kimchi grilled cheese and an Asian fermented foods board. The casual spot’s all-day menu also includes open faced tarts and cheese and charcuterie. The cafe will serve beer and wine.
And with EatsPlace located in the world famous Torpedo Factory Art Center, there will be project space for classes and demos. “We’re thrilled to be working with the City of Alexandria to bring EatsPlace to Old Town,” said Katy Chang, chef and founder of EatsPlace. “The fact that we outgrew our original space shows what a vibrant food and creative economy we have regionally. We’re very excited to continue to increase our brand and presence to champion food entrepreneurs in the DMV. We can’t wait to broaden our community and be inspired by the artist community at the Torpedo Factory.”
“We’re really looking forward to EatsPlace joining the Torpedo Factory,” said Diane Ruggiero, director of the office of the arts for the City of Alexandria. “Just as we’re seeking to sustain the arts in Alexandria, EatPlace is doing much the same in the culinary world. They see food as a way to bring people together and build community. They’re going to bring a whole other level of energy and engagement to the Factory.”
