Minibar, ranked No. 1 on City Paper‘s list of “D.C.’s 44 Most Powerful Restaurants” (because “booking a reservation is harder than rescheduling a flight during a hurricane”), resumes service beginning Thursday, Sept. 1. Chef José Andrés‘ six-seat avant-garde “restaurant within a restaurant” has been on hiatus since July as the eatery that once housed it, Cafe Atlantico, was converted into the pop-up concept America Eats Tavern. Eater DC notes that “the restaurant has already had a waitlist going for the month of September just in case it reopened, so don’t expect to get in any sooner than October 1 unless you’re already on the list.”
