Hill Country surprise opening tonight?
After Hill Country's soft opening the last two nights was cancelled due to construction delays, we wondered when the place is going to open. It certainly has looked set-up, with condiments and paper towels on the table already.
The Washington Post reported the restaurant was to open on March 12th, but a construction worker told Penn Quarter Insider it would be March 17th.
