Stephen Starr, the Philadelphia restaurateur behind Le Diplomate, is preparing for his DC sequel. His next restaurant will serve “steakhouse cuisine from the grill” near Union Market, according to a liquor license notice.
An LLC registered by Starr is listed on the notice for 1250-1274 5th St., NE. It says the restaurant will have 150 seats plus a 20-seat patio. A publicist for Starr did not provide further details other than the project will most likely happen next year.
Starr will be just the latest big out-of-town name to bring DC yet another steakhouse. The long list includes Jose Garces‘ Rural Society, Richard Sandoval‘s Toro Toro, David Burke/Esquared Hospitality’s BLT Prime, Michael Mina‘s Bourbon Steak, and Charlie Palmer‘s Charlie Palmer Steak.
