WBJ: Hook Owner Plans For Butcher Shop

Jonathan Umbel, the owner of Hook and Tackle Box in Georgetown, is pursuing plans to open a butcher shop and restaurant, reports Missy Frederick of the Washington Business Journal.

The shop, probably two years away, is planned for 3249 M St. NW, on the same stretch as Hook and Tackle Box. The Mad Butcher, the concept's tentative name, would sell meat and offer a restaurant. Umbel hopes to put a big-name chef at the helm, according to the WBJ report.
