Last week, I had the chance to visit the new Sabra Hummus House in Georgetown – and it is gorgeous!
This is Sabra’s first ever pop-up restaurant venture, and based on my experience, they should be doing this more often.
The space itself is beautiful – they did an incredible job on the design and concept, plus the food. The food!
Can you imagine a meal based around all new ways of having hummus? If you’re anywhere near D.C., you need to make a stop in here for lunch or dinner.
One of my favorite things about the spaces is that it’s very homey and cozy. They also utilized quite a few designers and artists from the D.C. area, keeping things as local as possible.
This table, especially, was one I would have loved to pack up in my car and take home. It’s right in the front of the space, offering a very family-meal feel to the space.
And then the mural.
This is in the upstairs space, and it is absolutely incredible in person. It was painted by a local artist….and I was trying to figure out a way that I could just take this entire wall home and somehow add it to our house.
But the real highlight of the night was being able to spend some time with friends and new acquaintances from Sabra and some other bloggers from the area.
One of my favorite things about Sabra is that everyone I’ve met from the company seriously loves their jobs and loves working for the company. They’re so excited about it – and it’s so refreshing! Sabra people have always made me feel so welcome; it was a great experience to spend some time in their pop-up with them, and to see the excitement and pride they have for the space.
And the food – the whole reason for the restaurant! Sabra is making an effort to get as much locally as possible, including most of the veggies on the table and that entire plate of pickles, which were one of my favorite things of the night. I mean, I like pickles, but I would never pick them to be a favorite dish over other things. These pickles were simply amazing. I’m definitely have to get some for myself.
The pickled carrots? Never something I thought I would love (I’m not a huge carrot fan), but I think they were my favorite out of everything. They were pickled in balsamic! So different – so delicious.
Some of my other favorites were the different flavors/toppings of hummus (edamame/sesame oil/ginger + rosemary chickpeas/preserved lemon!), and the little tostadas, which would be perfect for an afternoon of football watching.
If you’re in the D.C. area, get over to the Hummus House! It’s located in the Georgetown area, at 1254 Wisconsin Ave, between N and Prospect Streets. The restaurant is only open for 4 weeks – from September 29 – October 26, so you’ve still got a few weeks to go get your hummus-cravings filled.
If you do go, make sure to get some of the pickles, and the hummus platters….and basically everything else, too. Every dish was better than the last.
Plus, they’re open for lunch and dinner, so you’ve got even more chances to try everything!
