Two New Restaurants Coming From Local 16 Owner And Partners

Metrocurean has received confirmation that Aman Ayoubi, owner of Local 16, is partnering with Eric Gronning of Gronning Architects and Doug Whipple of Whipple Farms on two new restaurants, one at 1832 14th St. NW and another at 3418 11th St. NW.

Though the liquor license applications list Local 14 and Local 11 as trade names, a representative for the restaurants says they have not been officially named. Prince of Petworth has photos of the buildings here and here.

Local 16 is already using organic, heirloom produce from Whipple Farms, and with Doug Whipple's involvement in the new spots, I'd expect a strong farm-to-table connection.

Stay tuned for more details next week!

This is great. I really hope the food is on the level of Marvin and not Local 16 though.

I think Anon has not tried the food of the new chef at Local 16. It's great.
