Drafting Table will have a soft opening this Thursday and Friday, October 4-5, with a grand opening on October 10. The new restaurant by Aaron Gordon, owner of Rabbit, Red Velvet Cupcakery, and Tangysweet frozen yogurt, is at 1529 14th Street, where ACKC used to be.
Eater DC has the details: “This is Gordon’s first full-service sit-down restaurant…” The owner’s aim is to create a place where patrons can go and enjoy a drink or a meal as well as discuss projects in a relaxed atmosphere. The dinning area is a reminiscent of a studio with 62-seat area and a 22-seat bar.
The opening menu (check out Drafting Table’s menu on their website) will include a Charcuterie plate, Pear and prosciutto salad, Kaya toast, Falafel, burgers, egg sandwich, braised brisket, fish and chips, fried chicken and pickles, mussels, duck confit and Mediterranean meatloaf. A selection of 16 beers will be on tap and 20 different types of bottled and canned beer will be available, as well as a wine list by the bottle and glass.
The 14th Street corridor is also waiting on the opening of a long list of Italian restaurants as well.
