Zabb Restaurant is now soft-open at 1836 18th Street NW, in the space formerly occupied by Straights of Malaya.
Construction on the space started several months ago, and the modern Asian restaurant and bar will serve a range of pan-Asian cuisine including Chinese, Japanese and Thai-inspired dishes. They plan to open “officially” in the next one-to-two weeks. Stay tuned for details on their grand opening party.
The menu features a range of traditional and non-traditional sushi rolls, creative dishes like lobster mango salsa and salt chili shrimp, as well as old favorites like drunken noodles, curries, and pad thai.
In the interim, they are soft-open for dinner service only and are offering ten percent off of your total bill in exchange for your feedback on how they’re doing.
