Chicago’s Townhouse Restaurant Is Bringing Sake-Drunken Chicken To D.C.

The company Restaurants-America has reportedly signed a lease to install its Townhouse Restaurant & Wine Bar brand in 6,000 square feet at 700 6th Street NW. Citybiz Real Estate has the scoop. Townhouse has three existing locations: two in the Chicago area and a third in Sherman Oaks, Ca. A peek at the Windy City menu reveals a number of small plates, soups, sandwiches and other specialties, including a sake marinated "drunken" chicken, as well as a wine list that categorizes varieties like dames: "blondes" and "red heads." Classy. The joint aims to open in the spring.
