Mayor Gray to Cut Ribbons at Three New Restaurants in Less Than an Hour,
In Celebration of Shaw Neighborhood’s Restaurant Boom, September 6, 2013
On September 6, 2013, Shaw Main Streets will host Mayor Vincent C. Gray and other invited guests at a Triple Play of ribbon cuttings for new Shaw restaurants on a five block stretch of revitalized 9th Street, NW, between L and P Streets. These three establishments are the vanguard of more than 20 new restaurants and bars that are slated to open in the next six months, with more on the way.
At 2:15 PM, the action continues at Thally, 1316 9th Street, NW. Chef/Co-Owner Ron Tanaka (ex-New Heights, Cork), General Manager/Co-Owner Sherman Outhuok (ex-Maple, Posto), and Co-Owner Paolo Sacco (Owner of Ristorante Tosca, Co-Owner of Posto) have teamed to create this 70-seat Modern American restaurant decorated with colorful graphics celebrating adjacent Naylor Court’s historic stables. Tanaka refers to his menu as being “simple, fresh and flavorful.” (www.Thallydc.com, 202-733-3849).
