If everything goes according to plan, Liberty Tree will open its doors to the public at 1016 H Street on Monday evening after a brief period of testing out the menu and service with family and friends.
Liberty Tree is the New England seafood and brick oven pizza restaurant conceived by Scott Hamilton with the kitchen will be manned by Chef Graig Glufling. Glufling is best known for launching the original Matchbox with its famous brick oven pizza and miniburgers in Chinatown, but has also previously toiled under some of Washington's top chefs including Vidalia's Jeffrey Buben, Morou, and David Craig.
From the look of things, this is going to be a very welcome, higher end addition to H Street. In addition to strong beer and wine lists, the restaurant will feature white table clothes and servers who wear ties, along with delicious seafood, pizza, and other offerings in an entirely redone and very attractive space. Give them the time they want to test things out on their family and friends this week, but look forward to something very exciting opening to all early next week. Don't be surprised if Liberty Tree raises the bar or signals the beginning of a new era of nicer atmosphere restaurant offerings on H Street.
