This coming Monday, July 20 – the Neighborhood Restaurant Group who also operates Rammy winning, Vermilion, Evening Star Café, Tallula, and Rustico will add another Northern Virginia establishment to its family while reviving a beloved piece of Alexandria’s history. As early as 1871, the building located at 109 St. Asaph once housed the Columbia Steam Fire Engine Company which served as Alexandria’s local fire station. This space has been resurrected to bring Columbia Firehouse, this time as a neighborhood restaurant with two distinct dining experiences back to Old Town. This space was formerly operated by Bookbinder’s restaurant which closed at the end of May. Chef Orlando Hitzig from the recently closed neighborhood restaurant, Mark and Orlando’s in Dupont Circle was tapped as the new Columbia Firehouse’s executive chef. Hitzig has also cooked in some of DC’s best kitchens, such as 701, Vidalia, 1789 and also Charlie Palmer’s Aureole in New York.
