To accommodate MLB All-Star fans and attendees of the opening of DC United’s nearby Audi Field, the new restaurant will be serving a limited week-long preview menu of signature tacos, appetizers and a sampling of Mexican entrees.
Additionally, the venue’s four bars will be open and serving 16 draft lines: ten for beer, three for wine and prosecco and three for margaritas and cocktails.
Mission Navy Yard will officially open on Monday, July 23 with a full menu of Mexican-inspired dishes from the Dupont location’s menu, as well as new dishes like Frito pie skillet and Pasilla chile short rib.
Inside Mission Navy Yard the first of four bars is found in a two-story atrium that is designed with the feel of an outdoor courtyard. A sprawling staircase encircles a two-story tower that overlooks the downstairs bar.
DC’s longest bar, anchors the second level, flanked by six garage doors that open onto large outdoor balconies. The main dining room, with its own bar and balconies, is also on the second level.
A private dining and event space boasts the restaurant’s fourth bar.
Leading the kitchen is Executive Chef Roberto Hernandez who comes to Mission Navy Yard from Corner Table Restaurants and from Florida, where he was with the Blue Door at Delano and Barton G restaurants.
Charles Idol will serve as General Manager and Dora Kargbo will oversee private events. The owners of Mission Dupont Circle and Hawthorne are Fritz Brogan and Reed Landry.
Mission at Navy Yard is being designed by Streetsense and built by John Gardner of Wallace Construction.
