Casey Taylor Patten & David Mazza -- owners of Taylor Gourmet -- will open Taylor Charles Steak & Ice at 1320 H Street this winter. The Washington Post's Tim Carman broke the news today in a Food Section story about the depths that these guys have gone to prepare to bring the perfect cheesesteak to DC at Taylor Charles. They'll also be serving homemade Italian Water Ice with seasonal offerings.
1318-1322 H St all renovated over the last year
Taylor Charles will open in the green building
The restaurant will be located next door to Shwarma in a building that has been undergoing substantial renovation in recent months. The building is owned by Sam Chung, who also owns 644 H St where Akari Sushi & Sake is expected to open soon. It's one of three buildings in a row to be renovated over the past year at 1318-1322 H St. The block has seen a lot of improvements over the past year. Evolve Property Management renovated two other buildings a few doors east and another is currently being renovated to house Impala, the Mexican restaurant successor to the popular pop up taco stand Tacos Impala. By our count there are now at least 4 restaurants planned to open on that block over the next year.
