A new restaurant with a rooftop bar is on track to showcase its menu of burgers, steak and drinks near the U Street corridor this Thursday.
801 Restaurant and Bar will open for limited dinner service in the former Dunya space at 801 Florida Ave. NW this Thursday, according to partner Eric Heidenberger.
“Join us for our soft opening weekend this week,” reads a Facebook post about the opening. “We will be open Thursday at 5 p.m. Stop by and say hello to the 801 family.”
On opening night, patrons will be able to order steak frites, pan seared halibut and “The Burger,” a beef patty topped with fontina cheese, sautéed onions, bacon and lettuce and wedged between brioche buns. The eatery will launch its full menu next week, Heidenberger said.
The new bar and restaurant — which according to the Washington City Paper is owned and operated by the team behind The Front Page, Bottom Line and the Madhatter — will span three floors in total, two of which will be centered around dining.
