Second Agraria On The Way

It's been just more than a year since Agraria opened on Georgetown's waterfront, and Metrocurean recently heard that a second location is planned for 1900 Pennsylvania Ave. NW.

According to the parent company's web site, the second outpost is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2008. An agreement was reached in April to lease the 8,750 square foot space. Initial plans for the farmer-backed restaurant concept called for five locations across the country.

The restaurant, which is owned by farmers, got off to a rocky start when the original chef left days before the opening. Ricky Moore, who has worked at Galileo, Vidalia and Equinox, was named chef a few weeks later and is still manning the kitchen.
