Ari’s Diner Opens (for Breakfast and Lunch) in Ivy City Friday

via Ari’s Diner Facebook

From a press release:

“DC native Ari Gejdenson and his Mindful Restaurant Group opens Ari’s Diner, the first of their three restaurants opening in the Hecht Warehouse in Ivy City.

At the age of 22, Ari Gejdenson opened his first restaurant, an American diner, in Florence, Italy. Now, 12 years later, he opens the doors to his new diner, this time just a short distance from where he grew up in Northeast Washington DC.

“Diners are where I got my start, and I love them. I love the familiarity, the look, and obviously the all-day breakfast,” Gejdenson said.

The design is timeless American diner; green vinyl booths and a 16 stool counter. The menu is comprised of diner classics and a couple of twists, all made using high-quality and fresh ingredients. Classics like a two-egg breakfast and French toast join newcomers like a DC- inspired omelet filled with half smoke and mumbo sauce. Breakfast and lunch will be available all day, with a beverage selection of classic milkshakes, floats, and malts, as well as beer, wine, and a select choice of breakfast cocktails.

Ari’s Diner
Opening: December 9, 2016
Hours: 6 AM- 5 PM (breakfast and lunch) Tuesday-Sunday
Address: 2003 Fenwick St NE”
