Get ready SoNo, a new restaurant is about to open it doors! Say hello to Washington Prime, Eating + Drinking Well set to open in mid-July on Washington Street.
Located in a new structure on the corner of Washington Street and Water street, Washington Prime, Eating + Drinking Well “is the collective vision” of Rob Moss, a cb5 Restaurant Group alumn, and restaurateur Marco Siguenza along with Executive Chef Jared Falco. Washington Prime, Eating + Drinking Well’s philosophy is simple, “quality food and drink presented by an attentive staff, set within a vibrant, comfortable space. No gimmicks – just honesty and creativity in their offerings and genuine hospitality at the forefront.”
Expect to see an Americana menu with cross-cultural references, “The Connecticut coastline, our combined experience, the cultural backgrounds and the desire to offer some culinary excitement to our customers is what you will see on the menu,” beams Rob. For example, “Knuckle & Claw” with Long Island lobster, Tennessee blue grits, lobster sauce, smoked butter and tobiko or the Shrimp A La Linda (named after a local loyal customer’s favorite dish) with chili flakes, parsley and cognac cream sauce show the bold takes on typical dishes and big flavors you can expect to see at Washington Prime. If you’re feeling like something a little more classic, “all the Steaks are USDA Prime Certified and aged before being placed in a 900 degree specialized broiler, allowing for that true Chicago steakhouse char.” Furthermore, the menu is almost all gluten free and noted for customer ease!
What beverages will accompany this adventurous menu? With “eating and drinking well” in the name, you can be sure Washington Prime, Eating + Drinking Well will have a thoughtful beverage program. A selection of cocktails, craft beer, spirits, and wine will be available along with Prime Martini service. The Prime Martini service “will come with a side of the guests’ choice of house made items; Blue cheese or anchovy stuffed olives, pickled pearl onions, segmented rosemary clementine, queso stuffed jalapeños, and other offerings. The martini comes with a backup refill of your gin or vodka in a chilled and non-diluted carafe, resting in an iced bath bucket at the table.”
With seating for 95, a private room available for small groups, and an outdoor area for up to 40 people, Washington Prime, Eating + Drinking Well certainly offers a comfortable place where you can enjoy a meal with small or large groups, or hang out at the bar and watch the game.
A mid-July opening is in the works for Washington Prime, Eating + Drinking Well.
