Restaurateur Chris Brown and Executive Chef Danny Wells have teamed up to open Motorkat in the space formerly home to Republic in Takoma Park. Motorkat aims to celebrate Takoma Park's history by honoring the famous Takoma Park story of Motor Cat and her co-pilot J. Catman. This new concept is an eatery that also features a raw bar and wood fired dishes. Some of Motorkat's menu highlights include Sourdough Toast ($13), Mediterranean Sardines ($14), Atlantic Bluefin Tuna ($24), and more. For more information, visit their website here.
