1825 14th Street, NW
Big news for 14th Street. Back in January we posted some scuttlebutt wondering if Masa 14’s days were numbered. We need wonder no more. The Washington Business Journal reported yesterday: “Atlanta’s Gypsy Kitchen restaurant to open in D.C.” Eater DC reported Masa 14’s closure would come “by the end of August.”
Gypsy Kitchen’s Atlanta website says:
“Our restaurant draws inspiration from the culinary riches of Spain – infused with Moroccan traditions from across the Gibraltar and Indian influences that travelled west along the same seas. Centuries of interplay between these food traditions and lands inspires our Iberian fusion plates.
We also bring you the best of modern day Spanish cuisine, a sophisticated mix of traditional classics artfully interpreted through a contemporary lens, tracing through the eclectic regions of Spain, from the southwest coast of Andalusia to the Basque and Galician regions to the north, and then east to Catalonia. These creations are the fruits of our labor and are the result of years of joyful research from extensive travels throughout Spain, much like gypsies on a culinary adventure.
Gypsy Kitchen truly is our rite of passage, representing our inner passion to explore and create so as to bring you a taste of some of the best culinary gems and flavors that this region has to offer. We truly hope you enjoy these creations that tribute to great Spanish traditions and people, so savor deeply, sip robustly & speak loudly as you’re among friends…salud!”
