Address: 715 8th Street SE, Washington, DC
Key Players: Aaron Silverman
Projected Opening: Late January 2016

Well, the first phase of Pineapple and Pearls is projected to open in late January, anyway. For his follow-up to DC's hottest restaurant Rose's Luxury, chef Aaron Silverman is starting with a daytime concept: a coffee shop offering light to-go items like sandwiches. Six to eight weeks later (late March-ish), Silverman will debut Pineapple and Pearls's dinner menu, which he previously told Eater would "bring back fine dining... [with] enjoyment, excitement, and over-the-top fun and pleasure." More recently, Silverman says diners can expect a "polished yet playful tasting menu" in a dining room with a "high-end and modern-yet-relaxed feel." | All Pineapple and Pearls Coverage [EDC]
