Kitty’s Saloon to Replace Souk on H Street, Bringing “Contemporary Redneck Cuisine”

Kitty’s Saloon Coming Soon to H Street

Souk, a Moroccan place located at 1208 H Street NE, closed several years ago for “renovations” and never reopened.  Many of us wondered about the status of the restaurant that had been promising while it was open.  Apparently, for at least awhile, the restaurant was owned by the same owners as Nomad Hookah Lounge (previously Sahra Hookah).  Several months ago, extensive renovations began on the building and it became clear that something else was going in there.  Signage went up this week for “Kitty’s Saloon.”  While details are sparse, according to its website (very barebones), Kitty’s Saloon will serve “contemporary redneck cuisine.”  A Food Service Monthly article from last year provides some additional details:

“That Atlas District continues to grow. Miss Kitty’s Saloon is slated to open the end of August at 1208 H St. NE. The managing operator and executive chef is Scott Webster, a CIA grad who worked for Clyde’s Restaurant Group for 16 years, including executive chef at Clyde’s in Tysons Corner. The rustic mid-western saloon will be on two floors. Second floor expected to open in the fall, featuring a bourbon/whiskey bar.”

More details as we are able to get them.
