The Gunther Brewing Company building at 3605 Toone St. will be reborn within the next few weeks as Gunther & Co., a new restaurant serving American cuisine with local ingredients.
The restaurant, boasting 7000 square feet of room plus an outdoor patio, will serve “American dishes with a global twist.”
Menu items will range from classic, like burgers and flatbreads, to refined, like green papaya salad with grilled shrimp and orange-glazed duck breast. They’ll also be serving brunch and a long list of craft cocktails.
The walls which once held brewing machinery will now house a wine rack and a living “green wall” made of plants.
While an opening day has yet to be pinned down, Gunther & Co. is expected to be open within the next few weeks.
The Gunther Brewing Company was over a dozen industrial-style buildings that produced almost a million gallons of beer a day nearly a century ago.
The brewery was closed in 1978 and the building was given a historic designation in 2002. Virtually empty when purchased, the interior required extension repairs and over a year of negotiations and construction.
The owners of Gunther & Co. also own 8407 Kitchen Bar in Silver Spring, MD.
