WBJ: Harvest Coming to H Street

DSC_0096
517 H Street is the second red building in from the tree

The Washington Business Journal brings exciting news that we're getting a new farm to table restaurantcalled Harvest at 517 H Street. The project is headed up by two brothers, one of whom was recently the Executive Chef at Hank's Oyster Bar in Dupont. You'll still still want to head over to Rappahannock for oysters on the half shell, as Harvest won't have a raw bar. While they will serve seafood, it isn't just a seafood restaurant. They will feature a variety of meats, vegetables, & even pasta dishes.



Vitals:
-1,800 square feet
-2 levels
-60 seats
-10 seat bar
-possible spring opening

Isn't this restaurant already here? I believe it's called Boundary Road.

Boundary Road is overpriced and not that good, and everyone knows it

Actually the food at Boundary Road is very good, and it is a great space. Maybe you were eating at Vendetta.

If Boundary Rd would consider rotating their menu (other than one item), then yeah, something similar would already be here. Boundary Rd is good, but there are many different ways to cook seasonal ingredients and decorate a space. I dont see why anyone would find another upscale option to be a bad thing. This confirms people will complain or be snarky about anything!

Yeah, sometimes it seems like over half the posters here are anonymous trolls.

We've only eaten at Boundary Road once, but liked it a lot. The reason we've only eaten there once is that when we've gone there other times, they've been full and the wait for a table's been too long for us. Doesn't seem much like "everyone knows they're overpriced and not that good" to me.

Another West-Ender here...We go to BR a couple times a month at least. Love it. The commenters on this blog are the worst.

The more restaurants, the merrier. Keep it coming, we still have more abandoned storefronts than I'd like to see. I'm particularly waiting for the south side of the 300 block to get developed.

Welcome to the neighborhood, Harvest.
