Whiz Wit: Five Things to Know about Roofers Union

Yesterday brought the news that the new restaurant from Ripple's owner Roger Marmet and chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley will be called Roofers Union, and be located in Adams Morgan. Eater has learned a bit more about what to expect from the restaurant, which is still in the early planning stages. Expect sausages, vegetarian fare and, well, no aquariums.

· Roofers Union will, in fact, be located in the former Reef space at 2446 18th St. NW.

· Chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley will be serving up such dishes as house-made sausages, vegetarian snacks like cauliflower with mint pesto, and heartier fare like crispy pig ear and Denver ribs with turmeric.

· There will be Whiz. Meek-Bradley is at work on an andouille corn dog served with the cheese sauce, as well as other dips.

· The restaurant will be spread over three levels, with a casual bar and rooftop area (both serving a limited menu), and an open dining room. There will be floor-to-ceiling windows near some tables.

· Sorry, Reef fans — there won't be any nods to the former bar's underwater theme. Owner Roger Marmet picked the location because he believes Adams Morgan is in the midst of a renaissance.
