La Famosa, a concept rooted in authentic Puerto Rican cuisine, is slated to open next spring in Navy Yard. The fine-casual restaurant, scheduled to stay open all day, will be serving guests lunch and dinner as well as a full service coffee and bar program. Translating to English as “The Famous One”, the restaurant will feature a menu of unique dishes like sorullitos de maiz and chill frito. The 60-seat eatery will also boast a cocktail menu with authentic drinks like a rum sour and piña colada. Aside from the indoor seating, La Famosa will also have a sprawling outdoor patio to seat 58.
On November 16th, La Famosa will be having a pop-up and menu takeover from 1:00p.m. to 6:00p.m. at Right Proper Brewing’s Brookland Production and Tasting Room located at 920 Girard Street NE. A variety of traditional Puerto Rican foods will be served including Bolitas de queso, Tripleta Sandwhich, and Pastelillitos de Jueyes.
