The closing of Murphy's may have brought sadness, but the new tenant is an exciting one. Liam LaCavita, the chef who used to oversee Liberty Tavern and its sister restaurants, is opening up a place there.
He'll open Bar Civita in Woodley Park at 2609 24th St. NW. The restaurant will serve Modern American food, with an influence from other cultures such as Italian. The restaurant should open in early 2015.
LaCivita left Liberty Tavern back in January with the hopes of opening his own place.
