Bloomingdale bar The Pub & the People aims to open by the end of the week, offering vegetarian options, seafood — and no small plates.
The restaurant will serve a mix of Southern and Asian-inspired dishes from executive chef Dan Dalcin (formerly of BlackSalt). They'll have local beers (Mike Aloi is their beer expert), cocktails and more at the space, located at 1648 North Capitol St. NW.
The restaurant is owned and operated by Nick Bemel, Matt Murphy, Brittany Ryan and DC Reynolds' Jeremy Gifford. A soft opening party is scheduled for Thursday, and a grand opening will follow over the weekend.
