EatWell DC, the restaurant group behind spots like the Pig and Logan Tavern, announced that it will temporarily close the Heights. The Columbia Heights eatery will close after Sunday, October 27, and undergo a five-day makeover before reopening with a new look and chef.

Recently hired toque Kerry Tate, formerly of Slate Wine Bar, will lead the kitchen with a focus on local dishes and ingredients sourced from the restaurant group’s farm in La Plata, Maryland. New dishes include maple-brined pork tenderloin with cider-Dijon pan sauce and fried oysters with jicama kimchee. The beverage program is also due for changes, with “unique beers” and “handmade cocktails” (robot bartenders need not apply). In advance of the closure, the restaurant is throwing a sale on the 27th with 50 percent discounts on all food and drinks. Also look for all-night happy hour in the lounge on the reopening date, slated for November 1, and a garden party with half-price beer that weekend.
