(Updated at 8:28 p.m.) A tavern and restaurant that spans five levels and includes a rooftop bar is slated to open on U Street next month.
Hawthorne, the new tavern from Mission, Mason Inn and Chinese Disco owners Reed Landry and Fritz Brogan will open at 1336 U Street some time in December, the tavern’s marketing director said today.
“There will be three beautiful event spaces, including a rooftop with a retractable glass roof and a 360 degree view of the city,” said Elizabeth Spangler, director of private events and marketing at Mission.
Once open, the eatery will serve “modern and classic tavern food with an emphasis on mussels” from chef Stephan Boillon, formerly of Dino and Mothership/El Floridano.
