Wahlburgers, founded by executive chef Paul Wahlberg and brothers Mark and Donnie, will bring its tasty, chef-inspired burgers to historic Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. Slated to open later this year, the restaurant will occupy 6,500 square feet at 1 Dupont Circle. The first of several planned for the D.C. Metropolitan area, including Virginia and Maryland, Wahlburgers will deliver a dining experience built on the Wahlberg family values of heartfelt hospitality and fun while offering a menu that emphasizes creativity and quality ingredients.
"We’re thrilled to be bringing Wahlburgers to our nation’s capital, especially during such an exciting election year,” says Rick Vanzura, CEO of Wahlburgers. “We look forward to serving D.C.’s diverse community and welcoming everyone from foreign ambassadors and elected officials to students and visitors.”
“We’re eager to debut our first D.C. Wahlburgers in the center of such an iconic and vibrant neighborhood,” says president and COO Maurizio Marfoglia of WBDC Hospitality LLC, who also operates Wahlburgers in Coney Island, New York. “We’re committed to the D.C. metropolitan area and are in the process of securing additional locations.”
Prominently situated on Dupont Circle, Wahlburgers’ signature green décor will grace the interior and exterior of a striking glass structure and feature both a fast-casual counter and spacious full-service dining room with expansive bar and outdoor patio. A retail section will showcase branded Wahlburgers T-shirts, hats, drinkware, and more.
