Waterfront Station Restaurant News!

Restaurateur Med Lahlou, who owns three other restaurants in the city, including Tunnicliff’s Tavern on Capitol Hill, Stoney’s Bar & Grill on P Street, and Ulah Bistro on U Street, tells Southwest…TLQTC that he will open a fourth at Waterfront Station. Lahlou says the restaurant, which hasn’t been named yet, should open in about nine months and will serve American continental cuisine. There will be a large space for outdoor seating, in addition to indoor seating. That’s all the details Lahlou could share with us right now, but this is the first indication of the type of restaurants that will soon open at phase one of Waterfront Station. The developers have been tight-lipped about other retailers besides the anchor stores, which are CVS and an urban style Safeway.

Great scoop! Really good to hear that experienced restauranters will be coming to SW. Bodes well for both quality and viability.

On top of that, it won't be a chain. IMHO bringing in an Applebee's or Red Lobster would NOT be an asset at all - glad to see the support of local independent businesspeople.

Best news I have heard in ages! Hopefully there are more restaurants coming, too. I'd LOVE a Thai, Mexican or other similar ethnic eatery (or two?) at Waterfront Station. The more variety of restaurants at Waterfront Station, the more foot traffic the area will get, and the better all of the businesses (and the community in general) will do

Oh, this made my Friday. Great news (and scoop)! How awesome would it be if it had a "late menu" like at Ulah, so one could stop by for a snack and a glass of wine after the theatre? If they allow pooches at the outside seating like cantina marina does, I'll be there perpetually on my way back from walks, too...

This is awesome!

Truly made my day and made me much more excited about the project.

I live in Potomac Place Tower and we really have wanted a great restaurant in the neighborhood.

I am a big fan of the other restaurants this company owns and will be sure to visit often.

Also, thanks for your great blog -- it is the best source of info in our community!

I just came across your blog, and this news about the restaurant is the greatest thing ever. SW is starved for more food places! I cannot wait, and when it opens, I will definitely be there all the time.
