From a press release:

“We are pleased to announce that critically-acclaimed chef Kevin Tien’s new restaurant, Emilie’s, is set to open on October 10, 2019.

“We’re really excited to bring something new to Capitol Hill, where Chef Kevin Tien and his team may share their passion and talent with the community on a larger scale,” said co-owner Sam Shoja.

The menu at Emilie’s will focus on seasonally-inspired and local ingredients and will feature large, family-style plates and smaller a la carte menu choices. In addition, diners may select from composed plates that will circulate the room on carts.

The concept of Emilie’s is centered around the guest dining experience and transparency. “I’m really looking forward to creating an experience for our guests which fosters a sense of community,” said Chef Tien. “With the open-kitchen layout which extends across the main dining room, we want our guests to feel like they are sitting cozy in their own kitchen as we cook for them.”

The new 5,175-square-foot restaurant, designed by HapstakDemetriou+, features a lounge area with bar, a main dining room, including a 10-seat communal table and open-kitchen layout with chef’s counter, and a private dining room with additional bar. The restaurant seats approximately 110 guests in the dining areas and 48 guests in the lounge/bar areas. An 80-seat patio along the perimeter of the building will also open at a later date.

For his new restaurant concept, Tien partnered with the same restaurant group that brought JINYA Ramen Bar, Sheesh Grill, and Hot Lola’s to the nation’s capital: restaurateur Sam Shoja, restaurant expert and veteran Arris Noble, and inKind’s Johann Moonesinghe.

Initially, Emilie’s will be open for dinner service from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 5 p.m. – 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Lunch and brunch services will be added at a later date. Reservations may be made at

To further Chef Tien’s goal of community, Emilie’s has partnered with inKind to enable guests to purchase House Accounts. Proceeds from the House Account sales go towards the opening costs of the restaurant and supporters are given bonus credit for meals along with some additional fun perks. House Accounts may be purchased via inKind at”
