Chef Kevin Tien will soon be opening a new 5,175-square-foot restaurant, Emilie’s, in the heart of Capitol Hill scheduled to open in September 2019.
[Hey! I want to let you know about a tasting event at NatGeo on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Tickets are 20% off with my promo code BZK20.]
After departing Himitsu, Chef Tien’s new concept, Emilie’s, will focus on seasonally inspired and local ingredients and will feature large family-style plates and a small a la carte menu.
You can anticipate their dining experiences to be further elevated by small plates circulating the room on carts. The idea behind this style of “tableside” dining is to facilitate Tien’s mission of promoting and supporting the local community of producers, farmers, and ranchers.
In addition, the circulating carts will give guests the opportunity to sample a variety of dishes as Tien’s team demonstrates their creativity in the kitchen.
The restaurant plans to initially provide dinner service and later expand into lunch and brunch soon after its opening.
Emilie’s will seat approximately 100 guests in the main dining room and at the bar.
Emilie’s. 1101 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, Washington, DC 20003.
