Townhouse Kitchen + Bar to Chinatown

Townhouse Kitchen + Bar will be the first retail tenant at the new-ish office building at 700 6th Street NW. This appears to be the first Townhouse in the District, but there are several across the country including in Chicago, Sherman Oaks CA, Baltimore and Dallas. 

Based on the Baltimore Townhouse menu, the food will be mostly American. And pretty standard with salads, burgers and "small plates;" which just appear to be appetizers. There also seems to be an attempt to add a local twist to the menu (Baltimore has crab cakes and Old Bay fries, Dallas has angus burgers and bbq quesadillas). I'm curious to see the DC "twist." And there isn't much in the way of vegan or vegetarian.

This location will seat 243, have a total capacity of 301 and is seeking sidewalk seating of 46. They propose opening at 8:00AM daily and closing at 2:00AM Mon-Thur and 3:00AM Fri-Sat. There is a Facebook page, but not much else at the moment. More news as it comes.
