Addie’s won’t officially re-open until later this summer, but the public can get an exclusive taste of what to expect from the resurgent neighborhood restaurant as soon as next week.
Addie’s, named after restaurateur Jeff Black’s grandmother, was the spot that launched his culinary empire 22 years ago. After outgrowing the original space in 2013, it’s been closed as it awaits its new home in Park Potomac.
Black’s team announced April 13 that an Addie’s pop-up will take over the private dining space at sister spot BlackSalt on Thursday, April 20.
The seven-course, prix fixe dinner will play up seasonal seafood and spring flavors, such as an individual chilled seafood tower; crisp soft shell crab with English peas and ramps; five-spice duck breast with white miso mushroom broth; and wood roasted prime tenderloin with tamale de elote, smoked chile jus, and cotija cheese. A chocolate feuilletine will be the finale to the food-filled affair.
The price of the meal, which includes wine pairings (but excludes tax and tip), is $100 per person.
The dinner is scheduled to take place from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at 4883 MacArthur Boulevard NW. In addition to the seasonally inspired meal, attendees of the pop-up dinner will receive an exclusive invite to the grand opening party for Addie’s.
