1331 4th Street, SE

From a press release:

“Chef Reid Shilling, who brings with him 19 years of industry experience at top-tier restaurants including The Dabney and Bouchon Bistro in Yountville, CA announces the opening of Shilling Canning Company, located at The Yards. Shilling’s first restaurant concept will offer a rustic combination of Mid-Atlantic cooking and Californian finesse. Located on the ground floor of the luxury Arris Apartments at The Yards, Shilling Canning Company is on target to open in early 2018.

Shilling Canning Company will work with local growers and purveyors to source the best in fresh ingredients from the Mid Atlantic, from proteins that will be butchered in house, to seafood carefully selected from local fisherman. The restaurant is named for Shilling Canning Company, a small canning business that Shilling’s family operated in Maryland from 1935-1958.

Lending a classic, comfortable setting for dining, Shilling Canning Company will offer seating for 75 guests. A centrally-placed open kitchen with a wood-fired brick oven, and a wood-burning grill, will house ample counter seating offering guests an up-close experience. Fresh herbs and produce for the menu will be grown in the restaurant’s large garden patio, which will also offer outdoor seating and a view of the waterfront.

“For nearly 25 years, Shilling Cannery Company was at the core of my family’s life in Maryland, and this restaurant is a tribute to the work and care they put into the land and the care with which they created their products,” said Shilling. “I’m excited to bring my experience and my background together to create an incredible dining experience that highlights the great products of our region here on the waterfront in the nation’s capital.”

800 New Jersey Avenue, SE

As H Street was getting closer to opening, every time I posted I’d get emails asking about Navy Yard’s status. Unfortunately PR was unable to give an opening date so I stopped by last weekend to take a peek. Still a few months to go for sure:


“Early 2017” may have been a bit ambitious when they announced in 2013 but a ton of progress has been made in the last year:


Stay tuned.
