The Neighborhood Restaurant Group will open its hotly anticipated new restaurant, Hazel, early next week.
The new restaurant — a concept by former Tallula chef Rob Rubba — will open at 808 V St. NW on Monday, the company announced in a press release this afternoon.
When it opens, diners can expect a menu that includes shared plates of zucchini bread with foie gras mousse, crispy chickpea tofu and “Gnocchi Bokki” with pork-kimchi ragu, perilla seeds, and smoked pecorino. The menu also includes two “Lazy Susan” offerings — a Peking duck-style dish and a collection of seasonal dishes — served on “handmade wooden pieces.”
Drinks include craft beer, wine by the bottle and glass and a cocktail list split into two categories: “delicate” and “complex.”
Hazel features a 38-seat dining room, a 16-seat bar and a 38-seat outdoor patio.

The Neighborhood Restaurant Group is one step closer to opening a new restaurant at the Atlantic Plumbing development (2112 8th Street Northwest) near the 9:30 Club and U Street corridor.
A new document from ABRA reveals the restaurant group, which also owns Birch & Barley, ChurchKey and several other local restaurants, has applied for a Class C liquor license for its new restaurant, Hazel.
Neighborhood Restaurant Group’s director of public relations, Megan Bailey, confirmed that the new restaurant will arrive in the “late fall.”
“Hazel will open in the Atlantic Plumbing development in D.C.’s Shaw neighborhood,” she told Borderstan via e-mail.
The restaurant, a concept by former Tallula chef Rob Rubba, will feature a 38-seat dining room, a 38-seat patio and a 16 seat bar connected to the patio.
“Rob’s menu will feature his style of progressive American cuisine, combining flavors from around the world with traditional and contemporary techniques to create dishes that are refined, distinctive and satisfying,” Bailey said. “Complementing the menu will be a beverage program from Greg Engert, Jeff Faile and Brent Kroll.”
