A wood-fired restaurant, named Ada’s on the River, will open in early 2021 at Old Town Alexandria’s new Robinson Landing development on the Potomac River in the Virginia city. The menu will feature “a selection of wood-fired prime steaks, fresh seafood, and creative vegetarian dishes,” said Alexandria Restaurant Partners.
According to wtop.com, “Ada’s — named after Ada Lovelace, a 19th-century mathematician who contributed to the development of the first mechanical computer — will have 15-foot floor-to-ceiling windows with Potomac River views and a wood-burning oven center stage. It will have a large outdoor patio on the riverfront.”
As per wtop.com, “The restaurant’s kitchen will be overseen by chef Randall Matthews, whose resume includes stints at The Greenbrier, the Georgetown Four Seasons and St. Anselm D.C. It is part of a new condominium development at Duke Street and Strand Street, where condos are now selling for as much as $5 million.”
