Pop-up hub Prequel launched with a bakery in early April and introduced its house bar, Brick & Mortar, a couple weeks ago. Tonight, the venue at 918 F St. NW will host its first restaurant pop-up for a burger and lobster concept called Lighthouse.
Lighthouse is operated by EquityEats, the equity crowdfunding platform that’s also behind Prequel. The $57 prix-fixe menu will include half a poached Maine lobster with garlic butter and a salad; a six-ounce house-ground burger with tomato jam, maple-smoked cheddar, and a side of fries; and a small-bite dessert. Proof and Estadio Wine Director Max Kuller will curate drink pairings, including a welcome cocktail plus beer or wine.
The pop-up dinners will take place today and tomorrow and then Thursdays through Saturdays until June 12. Lighthouse hopes to open a permanent restaurant in D.C. with a super limited menu consisting of whole lobsters, lobster rolls, burgers, and veggie burgers.
