After quickly completing a full renovation of its space, Sol Mexican Grill (1251 H Street, NE) plans to open next week for lunch, dinner, and late night service.  Sol currently operates two food trucks serving tacos, burritos, and burrito bowls in the downtown area.  Sol took over the space previously occupied by Danny’s Carryout and transformed the space into a beautiful two story restaurant, featuring an upstairs bar and patio area.

Sol’s new restaurant will have two parts: a downstairs area featuring quick and takeout service much like its two trucks and an upstairs area (including the patio) that will feature table service and a full bar (and tableside guacamole service).  You can view the extensive full menu here.

The owners plan to open Sol in two phases.  The first phase next weekend will be for the downstairs area.  They plan to have a soft opening Friday night and then a full opening for the downstairs area on Saturday night.  In approximately three weeks, they will open the upstairs section and patio for complete service.

Once fully open, Sol Mexican Grill will be open everyday beginning at 11am for lunch service.  Sunday through Thursday, they will stay open until about 9pm (subject to change) and then on Friday and Saturday they will stay open until 3am.  They may also keep the upstairs open late night during the week, depending upon how the first few weeks of business go.

Sol will offer an extensive drink menu.  They will have a variety of beers, margaritas, and many different tequilas including some small batch tequilas from small farms in Mexico.

For now, the owners plan on continuing to operate both of their food trucks during the week downtown.

The owners of Sol took over the space many months ago, and there had not been any construction activity until January of this year.  Late last year, some (District Cuisine included) had begun to worry that something had changed their plans to move into the space.  Quite to the contrary, the owners explained that the D.C. Government had held up their construction plans until January of this year.  Once they were able to begin construction in January, they worked around the clock (many times 14 hours a day) to renovate the space and get ready for opening.  They have done quite a lot of impressive work in only three months.

Sol’s exciting new space and impressive looking menu combined with their already great tasting food they serve from their food trucks make their opening this weekend quite exciting for the neighborhood.  We can’t wait to check it out.
