Kennedy Eats

Washington DC loves a good night out, so we’re thrilled to provide the Petworth neighborhood with a much-needed dining and drinking establishment by way of a complete transformation of an old dry-cleaning operation.

While in much need of a spit and polish, the original 1913 structure offered a multitude of classic detailing and an interior space perfectly poised for complete transformation. We maintained the bones of the exterior, while exchanging the worn, dated ground-floor window details for stately wood-framed glass panels that anchor the building and highlight the building’s corner location.

Upon entrance, patrons are instantly taken by the soaring ceilings, as well as the stunning original brickwork, rustic details, and repurposed wood floors that point to the history of the building while also embracing a forward-thinking modernity. Intersecting the space is a loft area for additional seating, with glass panel barriers that contribute to the inspiring openness of the space. The result is a charming neighborhood meeting space that contributes to the energy of the surrounding area as well as the lives of the people who spend their time within its walls.
