I’m getting giddy. Though the eye catching bright green shall be missed, the rendering (above) for Moreland’s Tavern looks great. And the history is freaking phenomenal. More info on the chef and menus coming soon!

Here’s some more background on the restaurant replacing Swampoodle from one of the owners of Boundary Stone and DC Reynolds:

“We are still aiming for a Fall opening with the name Moreland’s Tavern.

Some history here on Moreland’s Tavern:

Moreland’s Tavern is where the soldiers from Fort Stevens used to go to eat and drink during the civil war. Fun fact about Fort Stevens, it was also the only Fort to see any action during the civil war and actually defended the city from the Confederate Army. So basically Moreland’s Tavern saved D.C. It was also the first place place to welcome people into the city, and the last stop on the way out with Georgia Ave being a main thoroughfare.”
