Vendetta, (1212 H Street) H Street bocce bar and tavern has new owners. Teddy Folkman (of Granville Moore's fame) and Adam Cox (of Maison-Dixon Hot Chicken) have joined forces with Joe Englert and Jimmy Silk (Capitol Lounge and H Street Country Club) to remake it as a brew-pub.
According to a press release:
For the time being, the restaurant will continue business as usual, but the new owners have plans to transition the space into a brewpub later this year with a menu centered around Cox’s Maison-Dixon Hot Chicken concept. In the meantime, Chef Folkman is returning to the kitchen with a revamped menu of “Long Island Red Sauce” dishes that launches this week.
Folkman said “It’s great to be back in a kitchen on H Street." Adding that “Big changes are on their way, but for now, we’re just having fun cooking dishes I’ve been eating or making since childhood.”
Vendetta will run a “Lady & the Tramp” Valentine's Day special menu for two. The tavern will continue to hold events like their popular ASL Trivia Night.
The Washington City Paper has more details on the plans.
