This was rumored a number of weeks ago, but today it is official that Capitol Hill restaurateur Xavier Cervera will be opening a restaurant in the pavilion space at Canal Park. I hope to have more details later today, so check back for updates, but for now I'll repeat what the last rumors were, that the menu would feature "Neopolitan pizzas and a raw bar." (We'll see if that holds up.)
Cervera also has another Near Southeast eatery in the works, with Willie's Brew and Que planned for the Boilermaker Shops at the Yards. He is also the man behind Lola's, the Chesapeake Room, Senart's, and the under-renovation Hawk 'N' Dove.
(This is a can't-wait-an-instant-to-get-the-news-out post, so like I said, I'll have more later today, including hopefully timelines and whatnot.)
UPDATE: The restaurant will be named the Park Tavern, and Chris Vanarsdale of the Canal Park Development Association says they are "still working out the details of the menu." Cervera will be designing the 3,500-square-foot LEED gold or platinum space over the next couple of months, and it will open at the same time the park is completed, which is now expected to be June 2012. There will also be outdoor seating.
And, probably less exciting news but news nonetheless is that the CPDA also now has an agreement with Rink Management Services to operate the ice skating rink in the park's southernmost block, near M Street. (They operate the Reston Town Center rink along with lots of other seasonal and year-round rinks across the country.) Needless to say, that part of the park probably won't be functioning when the park opens next summer, but look for it in the winter of 2012/2013.
Construction on the park continues, with lots of infrastructure work still being done (though the pavilion where the Park Tavern will be continues to rise up). My Canal Park page has more information, renderings, and some not-altogether-outdated photos.

Wow, it's almost time to pull out the eatin' pants in Near Southeast.

I was hoping for less upscale, but at least there will be plenty of options nearby.

This is terrific. I'm really looking forward to the restaurant and the ice rink. I think it will become a true community gathering space.


Sophia Monster says: (11/17/11 6:02 PM)
I'm actually really looking forward to this restaurant and the ones near the water. Does anyone know what the small storefronts actually on the riverwalk will be?


JD says: (11/17/11 6:15 PM)
I don't think Forest City knows yet. :-) The intent is "small retail," probably food kiosks and little things. (You're talking about the bays in the underside of the Overlook, right?)


JD says: (11/17/11 6:27 PM)
But there will be at least two restaurants in the Lumber Shed--and hopefully an announcement on which ones before too much longer.

I actually had a somewhat serious interest in the retail bays and actually met with a Forest City representative. They were looking for seasonal offerings that, at least for the foreseeable future, didn't require any sort of electricity, water, or ventilation. The bays were far from complete and weren't even partitioned off -- basically a shell. We didn't discuss price because they were pretty far off.

Interesting intel. Thank you for sharing.

Willie's Brew and Que, Gordon Biersch, and a Park Tavern. How many stupid breweries do we need? Give us a hip lounge/happy hour locale that you might find in Dupont or Farragut. (a la Ozio and Barcode)

But I guess developers know their demographics. BRO.

some sushi up in the joint would be sweet! and ramen in winter.
