Ivy City - Neighborhood Book, Now Hiring, and New Openings!

Neighborhood

The Ivy City renaissance continues! Take a look at our neighborhood in the Ivy City book (Gravitas is featured on Page 18). Fun things to come throughout 2017/2018, and we're thrilled to be listed amongst the current neighbors and upcoming openings. The energy and revitalization of our few blocks in Northeast DC is exhilarating!

Now Hiring

With our opening date fast approaching, we're looking for a few strong candidates. We're looking to hire people, not positions, to join our close-knit, innovative, fun-loving, food-crazed family. Check out our Craigslist and Instagram post and send resumes to careers@gravitasdc.com.

New Openings

The Washington Post reported last week on our soon-to-be neighbor, Supreme Core Cider. The forthcoming 5,000-square-foot production facility and taproom is set to open some time late 2017 and will be located at 2400 T Street NE. Supreme Core Cider joins our other beloved distillery neighbors including, One Eight, Jos A Magnus, Republic Restoratives, and New Columbia.

Zagat, Tasting Table, Washington City Paper - Gravitas named as most anticipated restaurants

As we begin to wave goodbye to hot, sticky summer months, we look forward to welcoming beautiful fall DC weather... and our forthcoming restaurant. After months of anticipation, we're almost here! The renaissance of our Ivy City neighborhood has us chomping at the bit to share our open-kitchen, New American restaurant and urban garden (did we mention the rooftop greenhouse bar?)

We are thrilled to hear people are just as excited as we are about the opening. Over the past two weeks, Gravitas has been featured in not one, but three, local and national publications - ZagatTasting Table, Washington City Paper, as one of the most hotly anticipated restaurant openings.

The Gravitas Team is hoping to open our doors in October (stay tuned). In the meantime, please keep in touch at info@gravitasdc.com.

 

P.S. - We're also hiring! We'd love to hear from interested candidates for a variety of positions. We're looking for folks that will act as brand ambassadors, whose actions help to support our commitment to community and inclusiveness, and people who often feel compelled to generate and take ownership of their own innovative ideas. Relevant industry experience is a must (required). Passion for supporting small businesses and regional not-for-profits (recommended). Sense of humor (preferred).

Zagat - Gravitas named as one of 10 Most Anticipated DC Restaurants of 2017

Chef Matt Baker — honored on our 30 Under 30 list in 2015 — has been roving around hosting monthly dinners at such places as The Source, Right Proper and Dolcezza. He’s nearly ready to settle into a permanent home in Ivy City, where he’ll dream up two new five-course tasting menus each week — a chef’s tasting menu and a vegetarian menu. Until then, sign up for the mailing list to keep up to date on dinners, which feature locally sourced tasting menus that sometimes go vegetarian and vegan.
— Zagat

Big thanks to Rina Rapuano for listing Gravitas as one of THE places to watch this year... and for reminding Chef Matt he's no longer "under 30". C'mon Spring 2017!
