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.

The upstairs section is open for dinner and late night service starting at 5pm (the downstairs section is also open for lunch) and going until 2am on the weekends.  The kitchen will remain open until 11pm on the weekends. Continue reading

Currently only the first level is open until they open their second floor and patio in a few weeks.  When they open the upstairs section, it will feature a more expansive menu and table service.

We stopped by on Saturday to enjoy our first lunch.  We tried several of the tacos and were very impressed.  The chorizo and al pastor tacos reminded us of the authentic tacos that we used to enjoy out in L.A. and were quite delicious.  We also recommend the fish tacos as well.  Even though it was 1:30pm, Sol was doing a steady lunch business on its second day.  We look forward to many more trips in the future.

We were told earlier today that Sol Mexican Grill needs to make a few minor adjustments before passing final inspection and will not open this weekend as previously planned.  Instead, they plan to open next Friday, April 12th.  In the meantime, you can check out our preview here and their 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.
