Sol Mexican Grill Set to Open Second Floor Tomorrow (July 12th)

12 Jul

Sol Mexican Grill (1251 H Street, NE) is set to open its long awaited second floor tomorrow and will celebrate with a grand opening party including a mariachi band.  The downstairs section of the restaurant opened in April (you can see our coverage here), but the upstairs section and bar was held up for several months due to permitting delays with the D.C. government.  After finally navigating through the District’s regulatory maze successfully, the owners are very excited to debut the upstairs section.

The upstairs section features a seating area overlooking H Street, a bar, and then an outdoor patio with several tables.  While the downstairs section has a menu that is more fast casual style like Chipotle, the upstairs section has full table service throughout.  You can check out the complete menu here.

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.

Sol Mexican Grill: Coming to H Street in December?

4 Nov

We caught up with a representative of Sol Mexican Grill during H Street Festival a few weeks ago to learn more about their first stationary restaurant that is coming to H Street soon.  Sol Mexican Grill currently has two food trucks that roll around downtown serving a variety of tacos, burritos, and bowls featuring chicken, steak, carnitas, brisket, and vegetables.  Our favorite is the chicken bowl where they give you a generous serving of your choice of grilled chicken (tender and not overcooked), rice, beans, lettuce, corn, cheese, sour cream, guacamole (extra), jalapeños, onions, and three different types of salsa (the spicy one has a good kick).
