One of the most highly anticipated fall dining openings is almost here: Emilie’s, the cart-driven restaurant from former Himitsu chef Kevin Tien opens on Capitol Hill next Thursday, October 10. The mod-chic space near Barracks Row centers around a vast open kitchen, and seats 158 between the dining room, a communal table, and bar/lounge areas (an 80-seat patio is opening later). A portion of the chef’s creations will be delivered via carts that weave through the tables, dim-sum-style, delivering seasonal New American plates—think freshly shucked oysters, homemade breads and butters, grab-and-eat dishes like fresh tofu, or house ferments and sauces to accompany the meal.
