An array of brand new dining options is set to open in Western Market this fall.
Western Market spokesperson Ali Gorban said Tigerella, an Italian-inspired bar and restaurant, opened its dining room for lunch service Thursday, operating from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tigerella’s dinner service is set to open in September, according to the restaurant’s website.
Gorban said Alitiko, a Greek-inspired restaurant, is scheduled to open later this month.
ExPat, a two-floored restaurant, is planned to open later this fall. It will feature a bar where patrons can participate in sports betting on the top floor and a podcast studio, arcade, shuffleboard and karaoke stage on the bottom floor.
Also opening in the fall is Hippo Taco, an Asian-fusion restaurant, which will feature indoor and outdoor seating options. They plan to cater heavily to the GW community, with the restaurant’s name being a reference to the University’s unofficial mascot coined by students in recent decades.
Chinese-American vendor Lucky Danger is also slated to open later this year, according to the release.
