“ExPat will be the largest restaurant in Western Market, offering an American style barbecue menu along with other southern staples”

rendering for 2000 Pennsylvania Ave, NW

From an email:

“We are excited to share information about a new full-service social bar and restaurant concept coming to Western Market in early 2022. ExPat Hospitality from partners Chef Tim Ma (American Son/Lucky Danger), Jonas Singer (Union Kitchen/Bling Dog Cafe) and Ben Sislen (Kingfisher/The Crown and the Crow) will open the group’s first venue at Western Market, joining the new food hall’s diverse tenants at 2000 Pennsylvania Ave NW. ExPat will be the largest restaurant in Western Market, offering an American style barbecue menu along with other southern staples.

The 8,000 sq. ft. atrium will also focus on community engagement with the George Washington University students and the Foggy Bottom neighborhood as a whole, with sports entertainment, arcades, and table games inside the space. ExPat’s unique partnerships with sportscaster Bram Weinstein and gambling partner SWX Technologies allows ExPat to be an industry-leading food and beverage space with a sports betting component on its own technology platform. Diners will be able to place sports bets with their smartphones.”
