Bourbon Steak Reopens After Hotel Fire

On Sept. 23, the beautiful people were back in the restaurant and on the patio, front and back, at the Four Seasons Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue in Georgetown; Bourbon Steak reopened Wednesday after closing on Aug. 15 due to a fire.

“The extended patio offers ample space to physically distance in a beautiful setting within the city while lingering over handcrafted cocktails and legendary steaks,” remarked a Four Seasons spokesperson.

Chef Sébastien Giannini remains the executive chef for the hotel, overseeing Bourbon Steak. His pop-up, Eno Azur, came to a close this past weekend. Temporarily closed is Eno Wine Bar, which anticipates a March 2021 reopening.

The restaurant also announced the recent appointment of Jose Gonzalez as Bourbon Steak’s general manager.

“A true leader in the industry whose reputation has made lasting impressions with his team, Gonzalez brings more than a decade of experience to the property. Gonzalez’s invaluable experience and insights began in D.C. as a manager in training, opening Bourbon Steak in 2008. Since then, he has proven his impact in a variety of leadership roles at Mina Group properties in Baltimore, Jackson Hole and most recently Chicago, where he served as general manager for Margeaux Brasserie & Petit Margeaux,” the company told The Georgetowner.

“It’s been amazing to see Jose’s progression with Four Seasons and Mina Group, and we look forward to welcoming him and his family back to our nation’s capital,” said Four Seasons Hotel Manager Jason de Vries. “He’s a restaurateur and a true hospitality leader that embodies the position.”

The Bourbon Steak team says it is “excited to welcome back guests to indulge in Mina classics such as the famed lobster pot pie and ahi tuna tartare. And of course, the duck fat fries, truffle bread and the newest steak on the menu, the Australian wagyu filet with its depth of flavor and melt-in-your-mouth texture. Then, finish on a sweet note with Mina’s signature tiramisu.”
