TOM DOUGLAS EXPANDS WITH TANAKASAN, ASSEMBLY HALL, AND MORE
It opened rather quietly last Monday – Tanakasan, embedded in Tom Douglas’s new 10,000 square-foot Assembly Hall, which is situated inside the Via6 apartment complex. Inside is a coffee and juice bar, a garden store, shuffleboard, knick-knacks for sale, upstairs seating, and Home Remedy – a 2,000 square-foot deli that will include a salad bar and pizzeria, along with a daily dinner special. You may even be able to buy packaged food from other Tom Douglas restaurants there soon. In addition to the opening of Tanakasan within the expansive Assembly Hall space, Tom Douglas announced recently that he is planning on opening a culinary center in Hotel Andra.
CAPITOL CIDER OPENS ON CAPITOL HILL
The highly-anticipated Capitol Cider opened its doors for the first time last week. The 4,000 square foot, two-level former art gallery is now home to 30 selections of cider on tap and another 100 in bottles. The naturally gluten-free menu provides great pairings. The new pub intends to have “the largest array of draft cider in the USA,” according to the announcement of Thursday’s official opening. Capitol Cider is divided into two levels – each with a full bar fed by the dozens of ciders on tap. Downstairs, cider drinkers will find The Ballast Bar & Gameroom replete with two 18-foot shuffleboard tables, a stage with a 107-year-old piano, a fireplace and a 20-foot communal table and plenty of room for games and shenanigans.
