It's now only a matter of months until D.C. gets its first Bonchon restaurant. The Navy Yard location of the Korean fried chicken chain is hoping to open doors by spring.
GrizForm Design Architects is designing the restaurant to include a sports bar (appropriate given its proximity to Nats Ballpark). The 5,300 square foot restaurant has seating for 200, a large dining area, the bar and a red and black color scheme (mixed with a variety of wood tones). There will be televisions, banquette seating and a full bar emphasizing both Asian and American craft beers.
Bonchon has a presence in the D.C. suburbs, particularly Northern Virginia, but this is its first D.C. restaurant, serving such dishes as bulgogi and pork buns alongside the signature wings.
