1865 ‘Steak Seafood Cigars’ coming to historic “Billy Simpson’s House of Steak and Seafood” (also the old Chez Billy/Ten Tigers) space in Petworth

3815 Georgia Ave, NW

1865’s website says:

“1865: Steaks, Seafood, and Cigars honors our culture by celebrating our history.

Located at the landmark “Billy Simpson’s House of Steak and Seafood”, 1865 continues the legacy of 3815 Georgia Ave as DC’s new home for Black Excellence.

Through connection, empowerment, and development, 1865 is a channel to community innovation–in food, drinks, culture, service, and organization.

We exist to connect the trials of our past to the triumphs of our present by creating a space where Black imagination, magic, and joy are freely celebrated.

The 1865: Steaks, Seafood, and Cigars Experience is one rooted in luxury, indulgence, and reflection. It is an experience crafted for the present, inspired by the endurance, bravery, and determination of the heroes, leaders and achievers before us.

By continuing the tradition of serving authentic cuisine prepared by lifelong Washingtonian Chef Stackhouse, in an environment that celebrates our culture while uplifting our community, 1865 is a testament to our ever-enduring loyal spirit to the city.
