Corduroy, the restaurant near the Convention Center, by Chef Tom Power will soon have a neighbor - albeit a related one.
Tom Power is opening a new restaurant next door to Corduroy, Washingtonian reports.
The place will be bare-bones (or "down and dirty," as Powers describes it) with exposed brick and steel bordering concrete floors. The restaurant will also be cheaper than Corduroy, with nothing over $20.
He has purchased the building, but expects the restaurant to open in another year or so. It should bring much-needed life to a block that has dragged behind a bit.
We'll keep you updated as construction progresses and a concept becomes clear.
