Interesting news for the military crowd — Restaurant: Impossible star Robert Irvine appears to be opening a restaurant in the Pentagon.
On the road again headed to DC this morning for meetings.we are opening a restaurant in the Pentagon yea awesome.. Have a great day folks— Robert Irvine (@RobertIrvine) May 19, 2014
The Wall Street Journal picked up a Tweet from the chef earlier this week saying as much. Pentagon officials confirmed to them a restaurant may be in the works.
The Washington Business Journal followed up with Irvine's team. The restaurant is going to be called Robert Irvine Fresh Kitchen, and emphasize healthy fare, and also serve pizzas and sandwiches.
The Pentagon's dining facilities obviously are geared towards its workers rather than the general public, so it'd be an interesting first D.C. move for the chef. The Pentagon's current offerings are largely fast food operations like Popeye's and Burger King.
