A year after , a new restaurant will rise from its ashes and once again fill the space at 2917 M Street with new American cuisine. Phillip Blane, former sous chef at Equinox, and his wife Laura Schiller, the chief of staff to Sen. Barbara Boxer, will soon open their new venture, Unum, in Georgetown, according to the Huffington Post.
A news release about the menu details items diners might have previously found during the restaurant's last incarnation: items like quail, smoked duck breast with Swiss chard, house-made gnocchi and more. The 12-seat bar will offer more casual fare, like mac-and-cheese, tater tots and burgers.
Unum will also offer more than a dozen wines by the glass, in addition to a 60 + bottle list, and a rotating selection of craft beer and cocktails.
Unum will also offer brunch, a welcome addition certainly to those neighbors still smarting from .
The Facebook page for the newest addition to the Georgetown dining scene explains the name:
E PLURIBUS UNUM. Out of many, one. It is reflective of the travels that shaped us, the food and people who inspire us, and the city and country we call home.
The hours are set as follows:Mon - Thu: 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm Fri: 5:30 pm - 12:00 pm Sat: 11:30 am - 5:30 pm
5:30 pm - 12:00 pm Sun: 11:30 am - 5:30 pm

The Washington Post's Tom Sietsma writes that the new M Street restaurant will open "later this month."
