Jeff Black, owner of D.C.-based restaurants BlackSalt and Pearl Dive Oyster Palace, thinks Takoma Park is starved for restaurants, according to a Tom Sietsema story in The Washington Post.
So Black and his chef, Danny Wells, plan on opening a restaurant at 6937-6939 Lauren Ave., in the space occupied by Video Americain, a longtime Takoma Park landmark, that will be closing.
According to the Sietsema story:
Still to be named, their modern American restaurant will embrace a dining room, two spots for drinking, a patio, live entertainment a couple times a week and — to absolutely no one’s surprise given Black’s multiple seafood-themed establishments — a raw bar.
Wells said in the story he is eager to tap into the Takoma Park Farmers Market and will offer meatless choices.
