Tadich Grill to Open in the District in October

From our friends at Tadich Grill...

Iconic San Franciscan Restaurant Comes to Pennsylvania Avenue

After 167 years, America’s third oldest, continuously operating restaurant, Tadich Grill, will open its doors on the East Coast on Thursday, October 1 at the corner of 10th and Pennsylvania Ave, NW (1001 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20004.)

Located strategically between the White House and the Capitol, the DC version of this iconic restaurant will be at the pulse of the political district, just as the original is in the heart of San Francisco’s financial district.

Staying true to its roots, the Tadich Grill tradition of fine seafood and meats grilled over mesquite, established in San Francisco, will continue in Washington, DC. Under the direction of Executive Chef Wil Going, menus will be prepared from scratch and printed daily, serving the freshest seafood, meats, poultry and produce available.

Tadich Grill is larger than the San Francisco original, with 175 seats in the main dining room, 16 seats at the bar and 20 seats in the lounge area.  It will also offer an outdoor patio that seats 54 and private dining room that will seat up to 42, which are two more features that are specific to the D.C. location.

Dinner service will be offered at the restaurant Monday through Thursday from 5-10 PM, Friday and Saturday from 5-11 PM, with lunch and take-out service to follow in subsequent weeks. Starting spring of 2016, weather permitting, Tadich Grill will also offer outside seating specifically for the take-out service (on 10th Street, NW), separate from its full-service outdoor patio on Pennsylvania Avenue, NW.

One distinctive difference that will make guests rejoice is that Tadich Grill in Washington, DC will take reservations, as well as customers coming in on a walk-in basis.

About Tadich Grill:
Tadich Grill’s history dates back to 1849, during California’s famed Gold Rush, when three Croatian immigrants set up a coffee stand on Long Wharf in San Francisco. They served fresh fish grilled over mesquite, to the merchants, sailors, and argonauts that frequented the pier, a technique that the San Francisco restaurant still utilizes today. Over a century and a half later, that coffee stand is now one of the world’s most iconic restaurants, exemplifying tradition, longevity, and history. The Washington, DC location opening in 2015 will be the first outpost of Tadich Grill. To learn more about Tadich Grill, visit
