While the new D.C. restaurants James Beard Foundation-Award winning Baltimore chef Spike Gjerde and Maketto founder Erik Bruner-Yang announced in early 2016 remain on hold until early next year, the gourmet coffee shops and cocktail havens they’ve planted inside Adams Morgan’s Line hotel are now open to the public.

The trio of properties kick-starting the staggered roll out at the historic property (1770 Euclid Street NW) on Wednesday, December 20, include Bruner-Yang’s all-day restaurant and bar, Brothers and Sisters; Gjerde’s all-day coffee shop and bakery, the Cup We All Race 4; and A Rake’s Bar, the drinking den helmed by citrus-eschewing Woodberry Kitchen beverage guru Corey Polyoka.

Brothers and Sisters, which is projected to operate from 6:30 a.m. to midnight daily, promises Asian-American cuisine, afternoon tea service, sweets from New York restaurateur turned Maketto pastry chef Pichet Ong, and classic cocktails contributed by Eat Good Food Group collaborator cum rum distillery founder Todd Thrasher.

The Cup We All Race 4 is projected to operate from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. The casual eatery is expected to serve coffee provided by North Carolina-based roaster Counter Culture Coffee, whole-grain pastries from James Beard-nominated, Cityzen alum Amanda Cook, and locally sourced teas.

A Rake’s Bar is projected to feature locally produced spirits deployed in specialty cocktails and regionally inspired punches during the nightly “golden hour.” Local beers and ciders are scheduled to flow from the taps, while food will take the shape of raw bar selections and small plates created by the Rake’s Progress kitchen crew. The bar is projected to operate from 4 p.m. till “late” from December 20 until A Rake’s Progress comes online; the tentative opening date for Gjerde’s inaugural D.C. restaurant is Wednesday, January 24.

Bruner-Yang’s intimate, grill-centric restaurant, Spoken English, is also tentatively scheduled to arrive next month.
