D.C. gets yet another would-be power spot with the arrival of Tadich Grill. The old-school San Francisco restaurant opens its first location outside of the California original today at 1001 Pennsylvania Ave. NW.
The original is more than 150 years old, and serves up classic dishes like seafood, cioppino and steak from chef Wil Going. Expect accents like a big mahogany bar (and mahogany paneling throughout), emerald green bar stools and maroon banquettes, and plenty of cafe and bistro-style seating.
The restaurant has 175 seats in the main dining room, 16 bar seats and 20 lounge seats, plus a large private dining room. An outdoor patio will add another 54 seats. Unlike the original location, they'll take reservations. Status: Opening today. 1001 Pennsylvania Ave. NW; website.
