EatsPlace at the Torpedo Factory Art Center (Alexandria) Opening January 12th


Grab a bite the next time you stroll through the Torpedo Factory in Old Town!

EatsPlace is opening their second location on January 12 in Old Town Alexandria at the historic Torpedo Factory Art Center.

EatsPlace opened its first brick-and-mortar in 2014 in DC’s Petworth / Park View neighborhoods at 3607 Georgia Avenue NW, Washington DC 20010. The original location will continue to host pop-ups and guest chef residencies in its dining room, as well as cooking classes and local food purveyors.

The EatsPlace Cafe and Market at the Torpedo Factory Art Center is a quick-serve concept of eclectic sandwiches with entree salads and soups. It’s a mix of healthy and decadent, which will include kimchi grilled cheese and an Asian fermented foods board. The casual spot’s all-day menu also includes open faced tarts and cheese and charcuterie. Catering will also be available. The cafe will serve beer and wine once they get their license.

The cafe will also provide space for classes and demos. A calendar of events will be released soon after opening.

Local foods will include fresh roasted coffee from Qualia Coffee, nitro cold brew coffee, mushrooms and other produce from Good Sense Farms, chocolate and sweets from the likes of Harper Macaw, gluten-free baked goods from Bjorn’s Bakes, and other makers from the DMV.
