House of Big Pot

Washingtonpost senior food critic Tom Sietsema tweets a few more details on the forthcoming ramen restaurant slated to be built at 705 Sixth Street NW. The new concept from the owners of Sushiko will be called Daikaya, which means House of Big Pot, and will feature a Japanese tavern on the 2nd floor.

This new restaurant is next to another under construction called Graffiato – which is an Italian concept from Chef Mike Isabella.

    Sounds like another great addition to the local food scene in the Triangle. But I wonder to myself whether the name, when translated, might confuse people and make them think it’s another place to buy marijuana. LOL!

    Well if it was the “Big House of Pot” that would be one thing, but as long as Capitol Hemp is at 519 H Street I think their status as “neighborhood retailer most likely to be perceived as a place to buy marijuana” is safe.

    It will take a while, because it’s just an empty lot now. But it’s squeezing out one of the last few lots downtown. This will be another great addition to 6th Street. Maybe Muse will get the point and sell their liquor license to another great restauranteur. (They don’t know how to run a club very well, so certainly wouldn’t know how to run a restaurant.)

    TO “SM” – I’m excited about this too – but for the record 6th and G NW (where this is going) is not a new addition to the “Triangle” – it’s a new addition to Penn Quarter/Chinatown (as reflected in Big Pot’s press release)- but you Trianglers are of course always welcome to enter our hood.
