We have told you a bit about the new food+drink life playing out inside Capitol Hill’s classic Loveless Building but we haven’t shown you what Cook Weaver looks like yet. Here are a few scenes from inside.
Cook Weaver from Nile Klein and chef Zac Reynolds opened in December with the promise of a comfortable dinner party for you and your neighbors. “The type of food and cocktails are at home in fine dining,” Klein said, “But we want it to feel like a dinner party with friends.”
For a backdrop, the building’s old murals are back on display. Alexander Pushkin’s 19th Century Russian poem that inspired the paintings tells the story of three sisters — a cook, a weaver, and a wife — and involves a swan-turned-princess.
Cook Weaver is located at 806 E Roy. It is now open daily from 3 PM to 10 PM — 11:45 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. You can learn more at cookweaver.com.
