The team behind the Fainting Goat (1330 U St. NW) has plans to open a Hong Kong themed eatery in Blagden Alley.
Fainting Goat co-owners Greg Algie and Henry Bruce plan to open the yet-to-be-named restaurant and bar with chef Nathan Beauchamp in the former Rogue space at 922 N St. NW, Algie told us this afternoon.
Algie laid out an early vision of the planned business during an ANC 2F ABRA committee meeting last night.
“We’re looking at doing a Hong Kong themed restaurant bar,” Algie said during the meeting. “Hong Kong has great a tradition of food and a European influence with the expat nightlife, so it kind of merges together.” The eatery will also include a “little cocktail bar,” Algie added.
Though the team is still hammering out the concept, Algie said the restaurant and bar could open as early as December.
“We are finalizing stuff right now,” Algie said.
