Chicago-based Protein Bar opens its Washington, DC restaurant today at 11:30 am at the corner of 7th and D Streets NW (398 7th St NW) in Penn Quarter, the first of several planned locations in the DC metropolitan area. The menu [PDF link] is focused on high protein, nutrition-rich, and healthy carb offerings. In early February, PQ Living was the first outlet in DC to break the news that they were coming to Washington and now they are here.
From a press release…
Protein Bar‘s menu will include customizable high-protein blended drinks, bowls, fresh-made chili, soups, salads, and the signature Protein Bar-Ritos. Mindful of freshness and quality, Protein Bar sauces and dressings are made in-house daily. All menu items are high in protein and fiber and low in empty calories and refined sugar. Protein Bar uses organic, all-natural, and locally-sourced ingredients and provides a complete list of all nutritional information and ingredients for their entire menu.
Matt Matros, founder of Protein Bar, opened the first restaurant in Chicago in May 2009 after shedding 60 pounds by following a high-protein diet. He created the eatery as a place where healthy food that provides the right balance of protein, good fat and healthy carbs can be universally accessible and affordable.
Protein Bar at 7th and D Streets NW will serve seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. until 9 p.m., Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. until 8 p.m., Saturday and 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., Sunday.
