Pennsylvania 6, an American restaurant with branches in Philadelphia and Manhattan, has set a late-May opening for its DC location. The sizable 265-seat space will debut across from McPherson Square at 1350 I St., NW.
Public House management compay is behind the concept, the same as City Tap House in Penn Quarter. While the latter is geared towards beer fans, Pennsylvania 6 takes on the theme of a “modern-day supper club and bistro” with shellfish towers and other raw bar fare, roasted bone marrow, lobster rolls, and a selection of steaks and chops. A marble and oak bar at the entrance will center around craft cocktails, as well as 14 draft beers and a lengthy wine list.
Local designer Maggie O’Neill of SwatchRoom is behind the interior, which will be outfitted with two-person booths, dangling chandeliers, and a 22-seat lounge equipped with a fireplace. Three rooms will be available for private dining.
Stay tuned for more details closer to the opening.
