The Line D.C., the Adams Morgan hotel project that left Washington waiting for a glimpse for years, finally opened its doors Wednesday.
Though some of the hotel’s food and beverage offerings won’t open until January, the property began welcoming guests in three more casual eateries: Brothers and Sisters, the lobby restaurant and bar from chef Erik Bruner-Yang; The Cup We All Race 4, a cafe from Baltimore chef and restaurateur Spike Gjerde and a business partner, Corey Polyoka; and A Rake’s Bar, a cocktail bar from Polyoka.
Brothers and Sisters is the hotel’s three-meal-a-day restaurant, open from 6:30 a.m. to midnight, serving a mix of Asian and American fare. The restaurant will have daily afternoon tea service. Noted barman Todd Thrasher is in charge of a cocktail list divided into three parts: drinks inspired by hotel bars around the world, American classics and “ametora-influenced” cocktails. (Ametora refers to the Japanese interpretation of American traditional styles.)
