News broke yesterday of Tadich Grill's plans to expand outside of San Francisco to Washington. Eater San Francisco editor Allie Pape caught up with third-generation owner Michael Buich yesterday to learn more about the old school restaurant's plans for Washington.
This location of Tadich Grill will open at 1001 Pennsylvania Ave. NW in the first quarter of 2014. The location will span more than 7,000 square feet and serve up such dishes as oysters, Dungeness crab and sand dabs (a popular fish in California). Unlike the original, it will take some reservations.
This is the first time the restaurant has expanded in 164 years — it's San Francisco's oldest restaurant. There are no plans to bring the restaurant to other cities (yet), but more locations could come if this one does well.

Editor's Note: The article originally stated that Tadich is being opened by the same company which operates the upcoming Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak, Prime Steak and Stone Crab. Though the companies share some common investors, they are separate operationally, according to a spokesman.
