Thally Opens in Shaw
otly anticipated Thally (pronounced TAL-lee as in “Tally-ho, bitches!”) opens today, scoring another win for the Shaw neighborhood.
Co-owners Sherman Outhuok, Paolo Sacco and Chef Ron Tanaka (formerly of such prestigious DC spots like Morrison-Clark Inn, Citronelle, Palena, CityZen, Cork and New Heights) have created a cozy, 70-seat restaurant that serves modern American fare.
Mosey up to the 14-seat, black granite bar with leather-finish and choose from 24 rotating wines by the glass, 10 craft beers, cider on tap, creative cocktails, house-made sodas and spirits.
Here’s a piece of trivia: Thally refers to the Tally-Ho Stables built in 1883 behind the restaurant, as well as to Outhuok’s daughter Thalia. The stable theme is echoed throughout, on colorful wall pieces by local artist Matthew Hlubny, accompanied by more colorful seating, blackboards, antique pipe fittings and wood steel tables.
What’s on the menu? Expect grilled peach salad with prosciutto; crab roulette; carnitas sope with pork shoulder; pan-seared rockfish with corn salsa; roast duck and a grilled Delmonico steak in Bordelaise. Thally opens tonight at 7:30 pm.
