Wahlburgers to Open in Historic Dupont Circle Neighborhood

Wahlburgers, founded by Executive Chef Paul Wahlberg and brothers Mark and Donnie, will bring its tasty, chef-inspired burgers to historic Dupont Circle in Washington, DC. Slated to open later this year, the restaurant will occupy 6,500 square feet at One Dupont Circle. The first of several planned for the DC Metropolitan area, including Virginia and Maryland, Wahlburgers will deliver a dining experience built on the Wahlberg family values of heartfelt hospitality and fun while offering a menu that emphasizes creativity and quality ingredients.

"We’re thrilled to be bringing Wahlburgers to our nation’s capital, especially during such an exciting election year,” said Rick Vanzura, CEO of Wahlburgers. “We look forward to serving D.C.’s diverse community and welcoming everyone from foreign ambassadors and elected officials to students and visitors.”

“We’re eager to debut our first DC Wahlburgers in the center of such an iconic and vibrant neighborhood,” said President and COO Maurizio Marfoglia of WBDC Hospitality LLC, who also operates Wahlburgers in Coney Island, New York. “We’re committed to the DC metropolitan area and are in the process of securing additional locations.”

The Wahlburgers Story:
Founded by Executive Chef Paul Wahlberg and celebrity brothers Mark and Donnie and other investors, Wahlburgers debuted in October 2011 in Hingham, Massachusetts. The subject of an A&E reality show, Wahlburgers offers a fun, casual music-filled atmosphere where guests, like family, share great food, a few laughs and lots of love. While its walls celebrate the story through photos and words of the Wahlberg brothers’ life journeys from Dorchester, Mass. neighborhood kids to rising chef and international superstars, it’s the food at Wahlburgers that takes center stage.

Crafted by Chef Paul and served with heartfelt hospitality, the chef inspired menu features a variety of fresh burgers, housemade condiments, crispy haddock, seared chicken and vegetarian options. Other signature items include Mom’s Sloppy Joe, thin crispy onion rings, tater tots and thick creamy frappes and floats. Gluten free options are available.

Wahlburgers’ full-service bar is a popular gathering spot offering an impressive selection of adult frappes, cocktails, wines and beers including the signature Wahlbrewski - a Harpoon Brewery custom, unfiltered Pale Ale. Dedicated to giving back, Wahlburgers is active in every community it serves. Open daily for lunch and dinner, Wahlburgers offers full-service dining, counter service, take out and a full-service bar. For locations and more information, please visit
