Philadelphia’s City Tap House Will Replace 901 Restaurant

IMG_4834Philadelphia-based City Tap House is opening mid-November at 901 I St. NW, previously occupied by 901 Restaurant and Bar. (Hat tip to Barred in DC for reporting the news.)

The D.C. restaurant will be very similar to its Philly counterpart with "elevated" American pub fare, including brick oven pizzas. But the main attraction will be 60 rotating craft beers on tap plus an extensive beer bottle list.

Director of Marketing Mary-Catherine Corson says City Tap House will have a "sophisticated rustic feel." The Philadelphia location is outfitted with copper top bars, exposed brick, and large wooden beams.

The group behind City Tap House already has two restaurants in National Harbor: Public House and Harrington's Pub and Kitchen

Philadelphia restaurateurs seem to love D.C. right now: Following in the footsteps of Stephen Starr's Le Diplomate, Jose Garces is opening an Argentinian steakhouse here. And according to Eater, the team behind Federal Donuts and Top Chef alum Kevin Sbraga are also looking for D.C. locations.
