Belga Cafe's Bart Vandaele will open a new restaurant, The Drop, in Logan Circle.
The name comes from the fact the restaurant is located "a drop" below his restaurant B Too at 1342 14th St. NW, according to a spokeswoman.
The Drop will have a bar and lounge area, bare tables and a casual atmosphere. Cocktails will feature boutique gins and bourbons. Chef Dieter Samyn of B Too is collaborating on the menu, which will have prix fixe and a la carte options. Cuisine will lean more American, with a wide variety of wines.
A mid-October opening is the plan.
