Iron Gate Restaurant
In this week’s Top 5 Bites, find out what old favorite is back, and which Cleveland Park restaurant favorite has opened a coffee shop.
A New Iron Age
One of the oldest eateries in DC, the Iron Gate Restaurant, will reopen as part of the Neighborhood Restaurant Group on November 19 at 1734 N Street NW (map), according to the Washington Post. In the main dining room, chef Anthony Chittum will serve four- and six-course tasting menus of Italian- and Greek-influenced cuisine. Diners looking for a less formal option will be able to order a la carte in the lounge and outdoor patio.
Adored Cleveland Park restaurant Palena now has another reason for its neighbors to call it their favorite — it opened a gourmet coffee shop on Wednesday that starts serving at 7am. If you’re looking for a pick me up, you can order a variety of coffee and espresso drinks, teas, and hot chocolate drinks to go along with the cafe’s fresh pastries, donuts and bagels.
Bar of Seven
Seven Faces Barroom will be opening at 251 Florida Avenue NW (map) at some point in the next six months, according to Washington City Paper. The new bar concept is the brainchild of bartenders Ashley May (Velvet Lounge), Patrick Owens (Ripple), and Owen Thomson (Range).
A Growing Maple
Maple in Columbia Heights will be expanding as it takes over the closed Columbia Heights Coffee space next door at 3416 11th Street NW (map), according to PoPville. With the expansion, targeted for spring, the wine bar and restaurant will be able to take reservations, add an outdoor patio, and expand to a second floor.
A Muze with a View
Changes are afoot at the Mandarin Oriental as the new Asian-inspired concept Muze replaces the regional cuisine of Sou’wester starting December 2. The kitchen will remain under the control of Chef Didier Pouzier and Chef de Cuisine Mark McDonnell (Rogue 24). The menu will include items like pan-fried oysters with madras curry remoulade, Korean short rib empanadas, and braised black bean veal cheeks. The spot is known for having one of the best waterfront views in town.
