I got a special invite to the opening of the DCity Smokehouse launching with Revive-On-The-Go. I had never even heard of this place and am so happy I am discovering it. It is definitely a place you need to add on your go to food spots. It isn’t much space for sitting down and eating but you can eat it on the go, dangerous, or just be patient and eat it once you get to your destination.
Revive-On-The-Go (the dine-out arm of Revive Events and Catering in the Bloomingdale neighborhood) is the highly sought-after eatery that will be serving up classic savory barbecue dishes with an artisan touch.
DCity Smokehouse will be led by young culinary talent Rob Sonderman who has a serious passion for barbecue and soul food. Rob has quite a culinary background, I am impressed! In his attempt to spread his culinary wings (they are hands down amazing…I can taste them now!), Sonderman has partnered with Revive to launch DCity Smokehouse. His selection of barbecue dishes will pair nicely with Revive’s classic but fresh soul food and comfort food menu.
The menu features dangerously delicious barbecue staples with a spin including:
-The Brisket Champ ($9) sliced or chopped brisket with crispy fried onions and house made pickles
-Smokehouse Burger ($10) 6 oz. patty, cheddar, crispy onion, house made pickles, and chipotle aioli
-Pork Ribs & Rib Tips ($12) dry rubbed and slow smoked ribs and tips with house made pickles, house made barbecue sauce served with Texas toast
-The Torta ($8.50) red chile marinated grilled chicken, smashed avocado, fresh herbs, queso fresco and chipotle aioli
-Shrimp Po’ Boy (12) grilled shrimp, lettuce, tomato, and house made remoulade
The menu will still include Revive On-The-Go house specialities including:
-Chicken & Red Velvet Waffles ($10) crispy fried boneless chicken and red velvet waffle with bourbon syrup
-Fried Seafood Platter ($13) crispy catfish or shrimp with one side, house made remoulade served with Texas Toast
The Revive DC Events and Catering team is looking forward to the collaboration. “We are excited to be working with Rob and to be able to offer this level of culinary artistry to our beloved Bloomingdale neighborhood,” says Revive Creative Culinary Director Charese John.
Hours of operation to include Tuesday-Saturday Noon-8pm and special order pick-ups on Sunday (orders must be placed by Friday before).
Revive On-The-Go featuring DCity Smokehouse is located at 8 Florida Ave NW Washington, DC 20001.
I think this place will be booming in no time. The collaboration is a genius idea because of the two culinary backgrounds coming together. I can see this spot in a larger location in the future, hopefully.
