From a press release:

“Today the co-owners of Cranes announce details for their restaurant and sake lounge exploring the intersections of Spanish and Japanese cuisine, which will open in Washington, D.C.’s Penn Quarter neighborhood at 724 9th St. NW in the former Ruth’s Chris space. The restaurant, which will boast an extensive sake collection in addition to its “Spanish Kaiseki” menu, is expected to open this fall. Chef and co-owner Pepe Moncayo comes to D.C. most recently from Singapore, and brings an impressive resume highlighted by time in Barcelona and beyond working directly under famed Catalan chef Santi Santamaria.

“Japanese cooking is well-represented in the culinary scene in Singapore, and I fell in love with it the moment I moved there,” Moncayo said. “The more of it I learned, the more similarities I saw with the ingredients, techniques and landscapes I grew up with. When you look at Japanese and Spanish cooking, especially Catalan cuisine, there are so many intersections, from the cooking techniques to the way we combine ingredients and flavors. Spanish kaiseki is a natural cultural and culinary embrace.” (more…)
