LoRusso’s On Grand Now Open

We are excited to announce that LoRusso's on Grand will be opening in Grand Center! Rich LoRusso of LoRusso’s Cucina near The Hill has been considering moving into the District for the past five years, and jumped at the opportunity to lease the space most recently occupied by Dooley’s Beef N’Brew House on the corner of Grand and Washington. LoRusso’s on Grand will offer pre-show dining in the District before shows at The Fabulous Fox Theatre, Powell Hall and Jazz at the Bistro. A sit-down prix fixe menu will be available upstairs and a buffet will be available downstairs. The new restaurant is slated to open in early December.
