The Rhode Island Avenue NE Insider has an informative post on a new restaurant coming to Rhode Island Avenue, right around the corner in Woodridge. The restaurant, Le Table DC, is slated for a soft opening in January 2013, and will offer limited seating and only be open three days a week – at first. The restaurant has an interesting concept. Currently, it operates kind of like a catering company, serving eight course tasting menus to groups of 12 people in private homes for a set price. They plan on bringing that same concept to the restaurant, which will be located at 2212 Rhode Island Ave NE. After checking out the Le Table DC website, it looks like it will be intimate dining, small plates and pretty pricey. This tidbit from the Insider post will be of special interest to Brooklanders:
Can’t wait to try his food? Well, if his planned January 2013 soft opening doesn’t happen, Oliver is trying to plan a popup restaurant for one or two days in January at Silvestre Cafe in Brookland (12th Street).
We wish Le Table DC the best of luck, it is great to see an entrepreneur setting up shop on the avenue.
