Mayfair & Pine Opens Friday in Glover Park
"Top Chef" contestant of season 2, Emily Sprissler and husband Jason Cote are opening their gastropub July 20. Mayfair & Pine Restaurant is located in the original Town Hall space at 2218 Wisconsin Ave., NW, in Glover Park. It will seat about 110 and entrée prices will range from $12 to $35.
Inspired by their honeymoon trip in London and Pine Street where they lived in San Francisco, the couple will present their unique menu creations, including rustic seafood stew, a Thanksgiving turkey sandwich, an apple salad spiked with dressing made with candy red hots, mushroom toast with scrambled eggs and fish and meat pies.
Rejected by eight banks and picking up the project from the ground, the wife and husband team will share cooking duties by being executive chef and Jason Cote ad Chef de Cuisine. “This is my baby,” Sprissler said. With the economy not being their best friend and Sprissler being a freelance caterer, the couple moved to Washington three years ago. Both eventually landed cooking jobs at different Wegmans in Virginia. Now, they and new customers can celebrate the new Mayfair & Pine restaurant.
