A selection of charcuterie from Red Apron Butchery
In this week’s Top 5 Bites, find out what restaurants are opening in Petworth and Barracks Row, and where one wandering chef has settled down.
Petworth Citizen & Reading Room opens on Friday at 829 Upshur Street NW (map) with a discounted preview tonight. The neighborhood bar features a menu of burgers (beef, chicken sausage, chorizo), chicken wings, corned beef, and other fun bites from former CityZen chef Makoto Hamamura. Bar manager Kristi Green, from Firefly, presides over the cocktail list, and there are also three draft beers, a draft cider, and a selection of bottled and canned beers.
Luxury at Barracks Row
Rose’s Luxury will open on October 2 at 717 8th Street SE (map), according to The Washington Post. Chef Aaron Silverman, whose credentials include Momofuku Noodle Bar and 2941, is serving an eclectic and wide-ranging menu. It includes small dishes like an Asian-influenced pork and lychee salad and spaghetti with ricotta and strawberries, as well as family-style dishes like Southern-style chicken, smoked brisket and grilled clams.
Breaking it Down
Red Apron Butchery will have a restaurant component called Parts and Labor when it opens in November at 709 D Street NW (map). The Washington Post reports that Ed Witt has been hired as executive chef, settling down to his fourth restaurant in 10 months. He will work with chef Nathan Anda to create a menu based on Anda’s charcuterie and butchered meats. But rather than serving full-sized entrees, diners at the restaurant will be able to select from tasting portions, so they can sample a greater variety of dishes.
Chef Frederik de Pue discusses a menu in the Azur kitchen
A New Menu for Azur
After an April opening, Azur will be closing on Friday, and will re-emerge as Menu in January. Chef Frederik de Pue’s explanation for the closure was that the building was not the right size for the concept. The new restaurant, Menu, will feature three different sections. The first floor will be a market for produce, gourmet foods, a coffee bar, and takeout counter. The second floor will serve as a place to enjoy food and coffee from the market during the day, and as a wine bar in the evening. The third floor will be a 42-seat restaurant that serves lunch and dinner.
DC sushi stalwart Sushiko’s Glover Park location, where it opened in 1976, appears to have closed for good. The restaurant said its July closure was temporary, but PoPville noted a for-lease sign posted outside the building. It was reported in 2012 that the IRS had filed $840,000 in liens against the restaurant. The Chevy Chase location remains open.
