At long last, we have an opening date for the eagerly anticipated City Tap at One Loudoun in Ashburn. Monday, Nov. 11 is the big day.
The new restaurant — what they bill as an “elevated American pub experience” — will sit in a prime spot on the main central plaza, next to Matchbox and across the street from Uncle Julio’s.
The signs were installed this week, but funny story — the sign over the door is only temporary. There is actually a newer design coming and it will be installed once it’s complete.
The City Tap space is the former Hail & Hog restaurant, and it has been given a complete make-over. The Burn recently took a tour. You can see our story and photos here.
The menu at City Tap features unique takes on classic pub food — including “Elote Street Corn Dip” and “Ten Spice Wings.” Check out the City Tap’s Boston menu here — we’re told the Ashburn location’s menu should be similar.
City Tap currently has eight locations open, including two in DC. The Nov. 11 opening at One Loudoun is being billed as a “soft opening” meaning they’ll start welcoming guests as their staff gets accustomed to the systems and service, and any wrinkles get ironed out.
